A Reply to a Response

This is a reply to "Response to A Fool's Love" from Nicholas Westernhausen, another
PoetrySoup member.

Perhaps by strife we'll find ourselves,
I pray that this is true.
All I can do is make the choice,
And hope that You are there.

But even as I write this now,
I realize something pure.
You've given us the choice to make
Because You know us well.

You know that deep within our hearts
We long for what is right.
For after all, man and woman
Were made in Your image.

If this is true, then we have hope!
What greater strength than this is there?
We have the light of God within
Our souls. Now death will have no sting!
The sins of flesh are naught but that,
And God has handed to us grace;

The grace that washes souls of sin,
The grace that gives us hope.

    Or, actually, because this is about right and wrong, I think my response might be "Good vs Evil" because a lot of the battle is within us. Also, "Control" and "Ghosts" Chao!

    I think you are right that the Holy Spirit can bring something up from us when we write poetry. You're also right in saying it should become something like a rite of passage (a tradition type thing everyone has to do)--unless that isn't what you meant.. Look for my response to a reply
