I don't normally enjoy poems of faith - because they preach. I liked this because first, it's in a unique place. Second, it doesn't preach. And third it's personal but not pushy. Very well done. A difficult task to accomplish but you did it.

    Thanks for deciding to give this a shot, Michael, and for your very objective review as well.
    I believe that we can profess our faith without being pushy or preachy. So, on the rare occasions I do write about my faith, I always try to write from my personal point of view while keeping that in mind.
    Much obliged for your time, my friend.
    ~Dean

A very well-written spiritual poem. It touches my soul. I believe from the start 'the horror guy' has a great soul. I try to limit my spiritual poems to Sundays only, but they still slips through sometimes. Lol. (This one made me cry)

What reason does one have to live if not for his/her faith that God will be there at all times as is HIS plan? While we may not understand it, He has a plan for everyone who believes.

I enjoyed reading you poem Dean. I never doubted that you did not believe or that you were hesitant to share your beliefs with us at FS, or anywhere for that matter.

Your lines read smoothly with super alliteration & rhyme. Both of those carry the lines from verse to verse without being obvious to readers. The art/image is awesome.

I believe your testimony is part of His plan. It breaks my heart to think that you once planned to carry out your death at your own hands. To me, that is the time that God becomes more powerful & shows one the way through Him.

God wants you to share your talent of writing. Otherwise, He would not have given it to you. However, it is your job to use it. You have done well sharing it on FS. As you know, I never read much, if any, horror poems/stories. However, you have opened my eyes to that style.

You have every right to share your faith as anyone who is on this site. I am thrilled that you are showing a bit of another side to you.

You are not just 'that horror guy.' You are an important 'tool' of God to use show His love for all people.

Thank you for sharing.

Excellent! Jan

I love your heart, Dean. It is evident in many of your reviews and very much in this poem and the tribute to your mother's sister weeks back.

How boring a world if we all wrote alike. Reviews would be even more scant on FanStory!

It is my humble opinion many folks have turned one of the greatest childhood holiday, Halloween, into an anti-Christ devil worshipping festival that should be banned. What a crime generations will not experience the fun and fright as we did as children.

Keep on writing your macabe musings. I think they are gifted and wonderful.

    Thanks,Mary, I appreciate you sharing those sentiments with me.
    Like I've attempted to explain to a few rather over-zealous, condescending religious zealots here who have basically tried to tell everyone here that I was promoting Satanism in my writing, those dark poems and horror stories do not define who I am as a person. They merely define my tastes in literature.
    I very much appreciate your thoughtful comments.
    Warmest wishes.
    ~Dean :}

    Thanks very much for taking the time to read this, Tom, and for your supportive comments and stellar rating, my friend.
    Horror stories and dark poetry may define my tastes in literature. But this poem defines where my heart lie.
    Much obliged, Tom.
    Thanks again.
