Bravo. This is an excellent poem that speaks for all mankind. Everything about this is beautiful. The words. The rhyme. The meter. Very well done

My gosh, that was a truly moving poem. I love your horror writings, but I enjoy this just as much. It really shows a little faith can go a long way. Best of luck in the contest! There's no doubt in my mind you'll do well!

It's fine to profess your faith, Dean.
So many on site have. But has you say, conversion is not the main purpose of what we write.
We are many here. All talented, but of various beliefs--political and religious.

Thank you for sharing your personal experience with God in perfect rhyming quatrains.

I enjoyed your change of pace and, perhaps, in the spirit of the holiday season, your creation of a spiritual poem. I admired your rhymed couplets and internal rhymes in these soulful quatrains. Thank you for your courage to share your own story, as a "headstrong" but "special child". Best wishes in the Faith contest- Joan

Well Dean, you got me with this one. I love this poem of faith. You write it well and don't say the same thing over and over like so many faith poets seem to do. This poem has meat to it. You are infectious :) I can relate, because my faith is a personal thing. I don't attend church because church people have roasted me too many times. I like that you heard His voice in a garage. In the bible, He went to the people where they were whether it was in a crowd or in brothels.

I like this sacred Dean :)

Thank you so much for posting this. You are so right to say that writing is
a gift from and for God that we should always be thankful for. Too many feel the need to ram their faith down others throats here on FanStory, which is a complete turn-off for me. Excellent post and your honesty is to be admired as is your superb writing.

Bless you my dear friend, God works in His own way, in His own time, for us to exhalt Him in what we do.
He gave me my life many times over and as I have preached into the ground, I need to reach just one in what I write for Him, any more than one is gravy...and ilove gravy.
This is excellent and I am proud to be your friend

Aha. As my pastor says, it's time for Christians to come out of the closet, too. My
own beliefs are in turmoil, because no matter how hard I listen, I can't prove He has ever spoken to me. They also serve who only stand and wait? At any rate, the rhyming quatrains carry your message well. Excellent.

I have realised you were as much if not more of a committed Christian than many of those who attempt to ram theire faith down other's throats here on FanStory. The point is someone or some being gave you the skill to be "that horror guy", and in that role you bring such great frissons of enjoyable terror to so many.

We who enjoy such things, though not excusively, are not evil because of that enjoyment any more than you are for writing it. So, more power to your elbow, Horror Guy, and go on being grateful to whoever gave you you all those horrendous skills.

This is a fine, honest poem of gratitude. Particularly impressive use of internal rhyme.

The six is not only for the message but for the courage to say all this on a site not known for a lot of...empathy (?) for spirituality. I loved the words and the message and the rhymes were beautiful, as usual. A beautiful package!

    You're absolutely right about that, Robyn.
    There's not much empathy at all here where professing one's spirituality and faith is concerned.
    Still, I do feel the need to do so every now and then as we have a lot of new members coming in who may not know me or where I stand. And, I just enjoy praising God too, quite franlky, LOL.
    Sorry for my lengthy delay in responding.
    With the holiday coming up it's been really crazy arfound here as I'm sure it is there for you as well.
    Thanks so much for the support, the six-stars, and all of the nice things you said in your review.
    Oh, and before I forget, thank you for the member sent pumpsa you placed on this as well. That was very kind, and I do appreciate it.
    I hope you and your family have a happy Thanksgiving.
    Thanks so much again.
    ~Dean
