Very interesting artwork and beautifully written poem. Great job!

The Master, the Christ!
His Very Presence inviting me to join Him
and His followers dancing in the darkness. [I really liked this stanza.]

This spiritual free verse, Come, I am the I AM!, takes the soul of the individual through the ups and downsof existence, where we learn to both fear and trust God. Eventually, or hopefully, the end result is to realize that it is all to bring ME to God.

A powerful write about the darkness that engulfs us, about faith and His Grace leading us to light. The strong words flow freely creating an impact as we read along. Faith is a fundamental part of life. We're taught from a very young age that leaning on faith in difficult situations helps us to overcome even the most trying and challenging times. Good luck in the contest!

I usually don't take to free verse, but this poem grabbed me. Written in the first person, the message becomes more impactful. He ties things up very nicely in the last stanza.

Hi JLR,

This excellent poem gave me chills! Even in the dark, was He there and his followers were dancing in the dark ...

" But ... I remember, perhaps as a sojourner during another life,
when in the darkest of times -- I sensed deep within my very soul
a Knowing that even in this very dark place --
that point in a lifetime in which the stars
all seemingly were instantly dark ...
a place where all light appeared to have plummeted
into a black hole ...
There in the dark, within the shadows, was HE.

The Master, the Christ!
His Very Presence inviting me to join Him
and His followers dancing in the darkness."

Ahh, this poem touched my soul!

Beautifully written.

For those dissenters that don't believe that Jesus was/is God, born of a virgin, manifest in the flesh, dying for the sins of mankind, Jesus said, in John 8:58 "Before Abraham was, I Am." So that's, as they say, is that" this is beautifully written Jim, well done, blessings Roy

Great job with your free verse poem, Jim! I really liked how you show us the darkness of this world giving us an example of an alcoholic whose "pint of hope" had "gone dry!" And the piercing that darkness is the Light of Life in Christ. Best wishes in the contest!

One suggestion:
brightness, fueled by societies failed social net (society's or societies')

Come, I am, the I AM!
by JLR

Interesting free verse about darkness and light...good and evil. It's the third religious poem in a row.

Good entry for the Free Verse Poetry Contest. Your poem flows well. It draws on emotions and it presents strong images.

Wow! I am totally impressed with your writing. This shows man in the abyss of his life seeing an opening in the darkness,
The Lord is light! How wonderfully said.
Come...I am, the I AM.
Loved every word filled with so much hope.
Best of luck in the contest. This is a sure winner!
