Six stars for speaking from your heart. Everything you do, you do with all you have, and I admire that. Horror exists, my friend, and we all need a good scare now and then. If you don't believe that, then you've never been inside some of my nightmares!

Aside from that, I believe people need to know evil exists. The Bible is full of it. If people don't know, then they are going to be set up to be taken advantage of. I've seen it happen, and I know you have, too.

Take care, my friend,
Rhonda

Dean, I am certainly glad you posted this truly exceptional piece of poetry. I never admit to anyone just what I am feeling in my head. Before I read your poem, I began having feelings and thoughts of putting an end to whatever this life is supposed to be! I put my faith and trust into someone and that is going south. I'm tired of being in constant pain and with things crashing into my life! But, I read this exceptional poem of yours and stopped those feelings! That you Dean for this very timely posting of yours!

Take care my friend,,,,,,,,,Jim

    Jim! That's the most wonderful thing that anyone has ever said to me in relation to something I have written in my three and a half years here on FanStory.
    Like you, I once placed all of my faith and trust in relationships with friends and lovers when the One I should have been placing it in was relegated to the sidelines.
    But no more.
    Man will let us down but God will NEVER turn His back on us.
    If God had not intervened on my behalf that day that changed my life forever, then you would not have read this as I wouldn't have been around to write it. I would have never gotten to know you or anyone else here for that matter.
    I would have never had a daughter, never known Gidget, my beloved Chihuahua who brings me so much joy.
    I am going to provide you with my phone number in a private message.
    Please, feel completely free to call me day, or night.
    I'd love to hear from you.
    Until then, keep your chin up and hang in there, my friend.
    God bless...
    ~Dean

Beautiful 'Faith' entry Mr. Dean. I like the story, and how it took place in an old garage. Mine woke me up three times one night. I also love your author notes. I've never thought, that if you were a Christian, a Believer, a Follower, that you couldn't be anything else. It's where your talent lies. While mine leans toward 'twinkles and fairies', ha ha. Neither 'Heaven inscribed', yet, ultimately, everything is. God bless us all on our diverse and wonderful journeys! Great poem, blessings...

I don't think I generally thinking that I "shove my faith down people's throats" but reveal the need for Him, because of the unhappiness and personal guilt, the troubles of the world. And you say that you feel there is a calling on your life and rightfully so because of grace, God allows us to express that in the myriad of unique ways we have! But don't think for a moment there is a right or wrong way, my passion is, and will always be, the thing most central to meaning, there is no right or wrong way, I don't think I've ever condemned you for writing as you write, Grace should always, be at the forefront of our view. Lovely testimony Dean. Blessings, Roy

    Not you at all, Roy.
    I've never considerrd your poetry, or you, as "preachy" or you being pushy at all.
    But face facts, there are some here who are, and I do not consider you among their number.
    Take care, my friend.
    Dean

Thanks so much for the insight into you and your writing. Which although it is as
you describe is very entertaining. I wish I had more time to spend on enhancing my own work as you so graciously suggested. I hope to get my new macbook under m;y belt soon so that I can learn something new.

A really well written poem, Dean. You are most certainly not an anomaly. We are not necessarily what we write and some write what they feel and others write what is just running around in their imaginations or their nightmares. Everyone's 'source' is different.
You have written a beautiful piece sharing your strong faith but your work does not change who you are inside. I find you to be kind, caring and honest.
Blessings my friend

    Thank you, Lu. That is very kind of you to say.
    I could say much the same thing about you, but then you might accuse me of plagiarism, heh-heh.
    Seriously, thank so much for reading as well as understanding.
    It is appreciated.
    ~Dean :)

At last my dear Dean, you've "come out of the closet". I always knew there was another side to your grisly persona, and now we have met I feel admiration and respect for the person I knew you to be. There is much in your poem that I can relate to, when sickness and pain have made the future so dark I wondered "Why?"." What's the point?" Your words are truly inspirational, beautifully written, rhyme and rhythm perfect and the artwork is enough to bring tears to the eyes. Of all your work that I've read this moves me deeply. When next you raise the hairs on my nape I'll remember this piece and smile through the goosebumps. Well done dear man Cass

Hello, my friend. I always knew you were a good man, DeanO. This writing, even though beautiful in it's structure is not new to me where you are concerned. I think I have always known your heart. You worried me in this past year a coupe of times but I was so happy to see you bounce back. You're a good man and fantastic writer, DeanO. Bless you. Bob

This write gave me goosebumps Dean, both your beautiful poem (I love the double line rhymes you do so well) and the author's notes. Anyone that reads your stuff knows you are much more than 'that horror guy' Loved it, and good luck in the contest.
cheers,
valda

A softer...side of Dean emerges in poetry...but then we knew it was there...in notes it comes through singing out strongly..A beautiful tribute to He who holds your hand in times of grief and trouble..
