Oh. My. Goodness.

IT IS HARD TO TOP THIS, LIBBY. WOW! I love your use of 'boyhood took ahold of him'. Beautiful description there! And the climax was very well done. Bravo!

"To live is to love with the passion of a thousand stars. To love is to live despite the pain of a thousand scars. Anything in between is a passing shadow." ~Michael Joseph Murano

"A one that hopelessness

"A one that hopelessness defied" -- such a powerful, strong, inspiring last line. Was this based off of someone you know? I definitely want to make my life like that!

This is a masterpiece, Libby.

This is a masterpiece, Libby. I gasped in amazement over its lyrical beauty, and then grinned with excitement iver the perfection of its rhythm. Thank you for that.

God uses the milestones as stepping stones to bring us closer to Him. We may not see it in the moment, but we can always look back and see the memorials of His love in the crumbles of our stumbling blocks.

Thank You

Thank you so much. This is not based any person that I can think of at the moment. But I wrote this as a portrayal of a "true man".

“The gospel alone is the power of God unto salvation.
Therefore, suffer, yes. Be misunderstood, yes. Be shamed, yes. But do not be ashamed. For the joy set before you, take up your cross, follow Jesus, be shamed and despise the shame!" -- John Piper

Very Beautiful

I love how this poem tells a story of a person, from his birth to his death. In a way it’s heartbreaking, but at the same time very beautiful. Thanks for writing!
