The so-called Pope John Paul II Poems and Meditations released by St. Clair Entertainment features a number of poems written as far back as Polish-born Karol Wojtylas days in Nazi Poland, before he entered into the papacy.
One early piece titled The Schizoid is drawing attention because its romantic style has some believing its a love poem, giving some insight into John Paul IIs personal side.
The apologetic-sounding poem includes lines like...
There are moments of dullness, hopeless moments/ Will I kindle my thoughts again?/ Set my heart ablaze again?/ Dont leave me in those moments/ Dont let my anger upset you.
Other poems on the CD include: Thinking Back on the Encounter; Madder; and Melancholy.
The CD will hit Wal-Mart and other retailers Monday (Apr. 11).
