Dean, this is an excellent faith poem which shows that you are not just "that horror guy." Your story of redemption and salvation resonated with me. You told your story with honesty and craft, describing the moment you almost took your life--asphyxiation in a garage by letting the car engine run?--and how you were saved. I am so happy you listened to God's plan for you. He has plans for all of us if we listen.

Thank you for sharing your personal narrative. I wish you success in the faith poetry contest.

    Thanks again for taking the time to read and comment on my poetry, André. I deeply appreciate your support.
    I had planned in shooting myself that day, but a lot of odd things happened... weird things lije my father coming home for lunch and interrupting my plans, that led me to my father's garage and a meeting with the Almighty.
    I wrote a story about my experience and posted here about two years ago. I've provide you with the link below in case you would like to know more about what took place that day. There is no obligation or expectations for you to review the story.
    It's there merelybin case you would care to learn more.
    I hope my link works as I am trying to review and respond on my cellphone as my computer is down temporarily
    Thanks again for the shiny sixth star, my friend. I never take those things for granted.
    ~Dean

I never ever judge a book by its cover I hope I extend the same grace to my fellow man. I am so happy you included your notes. I think your poem expressed your personal testimony very well. None of us are one faceted. Thank you for sharing such a personal piece of yourself.

Dean,

I have been waiting all day to get to this computer to read your poem. I know it is late and yet another day but I had to read it. My friend, this is truly one amazing and heartfelt read ever. This poem of faith really touched my heart and brought tears to my eyes. I never had any doubts about your faith, it is evident God is using you to let us know about the deceit and trickery of Satan. I have picked up on that gift in a lot of your poems. I have nothing but the utmost respect for you and your outstanding talent and gift. Dean, till this day, I will never forget the poem you penned that really was an amazing and unforgettable read "Wisdom Welcome." Your are amazing, thanks for being my friend and may God continue to bless and keep you in His loving care. Portia

Dean, you have a way with words.
I thought the poem was awesome, didn't figure you as suicidal though.
You're right about faith and world wide social sites, things can easily get sideways. I thought what you wrote was from the heart and universally acceptable in a non-denominational, multi-faith sort of way.
As always, I'm impressed with your talent.
Jimmy

    It's been over twenty years since I harbored sucxh thoughts, Jimmy.
    It has never happened again, not even after my wife left after 22 years together.
    She claimed I loved writing far more than her.
    She was probably right, lol.
    I appreciate your kind comments, my friend.
    Take care,

Dean,

I wish I could give you a100 stars for this spiritual literary masterpiece. The poem is flawlessly written and provides a strong spiritual message, one that moves people and perhaps change someone's life. Your faith is exhibited in this poem.

I know your main genre is horror writing, which I immensely enjoy. Horror is not my favorite genre, but I love your work. You don't just write a horror poem/story, you bring literature to horror. Your word choice, imagery, personification, narrative, plots, characters, alliteration, poetic techniques are always top-notch.

Although you mainly write horrors, please don't idle your spiritual writing. God gave you the gift of writing in this genre, too. Just like your fans are awestruck with your horror postings, your spiritual writing could change someone's life. There are a lot people hurting, and some of those people post on Fanstory. I encounter them often when I am reviewing or when I post a spiritual/religious poem, which I write periodically.

If the spiritual poem is written with your epic literary touch, it will not come across as shoving.

Blessings to you, Dean.

I write some morally offensive stories, but I am Christian. I keep God in my heart not on my sleeve. Beautiful testimony. You've always been more than just a horror writer. You can do it all. Gretchen

Amen to that! This is very nicely written, Dean. I loved it. One of the things I like about FanStory is that there are many Christian writers here. I don't have to do "underground" to show my faith or my patriotism. For those two reasons I feel blessed to be a member of this site. We never have to be ashamed of who we are and I, for one, feel truly blessed. This is a special poem. We are all multi-faceted people. Marilyn

Hi Dean. I'm glad I caught your faith poem and your author notes as well. I agree that writing is a gift, no matter what the genre. Also agree that we need not push our faith down anyone's throat...but yet we dont need to hide his light under a basket either. Anyone who follows all your work knows you are a man of deep faith. Glad to be your sister in Christ! :-)

SUPERB. What else can I say? I knew this about you, but such a well-written testament to your faith and experience is very moving. I am moved, and you have strengthened my own faith. Damn this is good, Dean
