A to Z Challenge Acrostic Poem: RAISONNEUR



 Definition: person in a play or book embodying author’s view point


R   Rohan the protagonist had become a very sought after role even before the book was optioned for the stage

A   All that had been poured onto its pages had come from events that had directly or indirectly touched his life

I   Influencing the books development was that prickly bundle of life’s incidents he had tucked away deep within

S   So profound were they that they had a direct bearing on his personality now he will not be subjugated

  Once the opportunity presented itself for a stage production he was glad he had let it all in

N   No detail was to be spared in revealing the horrid monstrous bullies they had been with Rohan as the leader of the pack

N   Never in his life as a nerd did he think he would have the opportunity to expose his tormentors even if doing so brought him back to that place in time

E   Eviscerating them in fiction was his intention he did so in a manner that made them cringe at the person they had been and had them eluding their fifteen minutes

U   Unlike anything he had written before these characters especially Rohan were clamoring to get out of his head and onto the pages

R   Relief came with this verbal exorcism the stain on his childhood was removed he no longer inhabited that place poetic license had been his to wield
