So timely a poem! Love the AABB rhyme scheme...or you could separate every two lines and have a powerful series of couplets (as the final one is)---we're struggling right now. Your wise advice ought to be heeded. God made and blessed us all; we'd do well to remember that!--Karenina

This poem is all right. It is very positive and uplifting, and that's all right, but the meter and rhyme scheme are thrown off by the first stanza mostly. I do feel this has a lot of potential, though.

This rating does not count towards story rating or author rank.
The highest and the lowest rating are not included in calculations.

Portia,
This is a smoothly written and well rhymed short poem which tells a lot about faith and how to spread it around.
Keep writing and stay healthy.
Joan

A beautifully presented and deeply spiritual poem, that I know will spread that message of hope, that people are searching for. The words are a profound message in Christ, for those searching for hope, in a parched and barren land. Beautifully written, Portia. Congrats on the win blessings, Roy

This is a very creative and expressive poem that reflects your faith beautifully. I enjoyed the dark colors of the picture, and by contrast the bright white font and message of your words.
Thanks for sharing and congratulations on winning the contest.

Without faith it is impossible to please God. The key to compassion and love can unlock so much if only man will bend his knee and give God the glory - instead of himself. Well written and presented. Blessings, K xx

Beautiful, poetic commentary on the issues that are causing such upheaval in our land and indeed, our world.
Very much on point:
"Empathy is vital to show respect
Peace is crucial so we all can connect"

I would suggest adding some punctuation for greater emphasis on, and clarity of all your points, but perhaps you have chosen the absence of punctuation for artistic or stylistic reasons.

And of course, the overall focus on the unity God offers us in Jesus Christ, is a theme that rings true and would save us all a lot of heartache, grief and fear, if we would only give our lives to Him.

Very well conceived and written! May God bless you more and more.
