Beautiful faith poem for the free verse entry.

Fir a free verse, I like your organization.
I like the theme of the broken souls compared to broken glass. I also like how you used "light" in this faith poem and how you found Christ there.
The overall tone is almost haunting and it kind of got to me. You painted your picture well and the end is, of course, delightful.
Well done poet,
Katiemae

In my opinion, a stunning poem in its devotion to the captive spirit, once held by its weakness, which becomes its strength and, at last, faith and devotion - a consuming and 'Exceptional' read. Best wishes in the contest...

Well done JLR. Wonderful descriptions about all of the broken, wearied souls of this world especially the one about the wino and his shattered bottle of Muscatel. Enjoyed the confessional nature of this piece . Well done.

This deserves a six-star rating, that I do not have. Sorry! It is profound and written with just the right amount of mystery hovering just before
the transition from dark to light, when He shines through.

"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."
""Come ... I am, the I AM"
Truly Jesus is the great I Am, our Saviour, our Lord and King. What a joy it is to know Him.

The great redeeming value of faith is that no matter how far we may fall, the path to redemption is always well lit; the door to salvation is always open. This will not last forever, however. The end is down in writing, so while there is yet time, those of us who may be striving for redemption must seek the kingdom while there is yet time and opportunity. Well written and very well presented.

I have two problems with most religious poetry.

First, as an unbeliever, it has to be really well done to interest me. My interest is then always academic and I don't try to argue the toss over the content.

The second is that sadly, so much religious poetry is simply poorly done, and if you criticise it for the way it is done the authors argue that you shouldn't criticise a matter of belief, which I wasn't doing anyway.

The result is that I tend to skip it. But wen I saw your namev alongside this I knew I had to get inside and read it. I felt I would not be disappointed, and I wasn't.

This is an excellent piece of free verse that the plethora of rhyming early on does not disqualify it from being.

    hey boss! Thanks so much, I get that sentiment all too much? I am not a churchy guy, never has worked for me. But, as we all I have had my dark days.
