I have just removed the wording 'it was' from the 5th stanza re-placing them with the word 'Hidden' I have been meaning to do it for the last two years, just got round to it at last.'

13th 11th 2017

To win is the trying..!' gainst despairs blank stare, a wounded earth still rolls on..! Midst the throes of territorial vying.. Shows our shattered crystal the counsel of despair As the pales; of circumvention, invade earth's free sod and air, Oh.! such power we covet To maintain..! what is "right?" what is yours.. can be theirs" or is it ours..? should we fight..? Yes it tears through our city's this division reprised, To the call of soulless ambition, destruction quickens in stride, And! yet not new its existence..) "for know ye satan he is a liar" Though hidden deep in shadow; was to emerge its sly desire. Yet how ask us "innocent's" & why should this be? Whilst we gaze upon its sickness and water the seeds..! So we stand without reason, or we lay down condemned, Yet open hearts to salvation; on Jesus depend, Call his name now in season) let the fetters free fall, The Miracle is "willing" none should perish is all..!

This is a very deep in thought poem. Unlike any I've read before. Keep writing from your heart, because I know that's where this one came from.

Profound words in this gripping prose piece Joe. Christ is indeed the Miracle of all miracles who is willing to set us free from death "if" we are willing. Thank you for this wonderful and powerful message. I believe that here are just a few typos in your piece that you might want to tweak: such as... "earth's", "soulless", "how" & "innocents". All in all, an outstanding piece. Thank you for posting it.

i always assumed the devil wasn't a liar, the truth is far more effective and bringing people down. which leads me to a small rambling and i am not trying to bring you down but i am curious about the mask in your picture. so many dots to connect from a man that wears such a mask but i am not here to connect dots just curious what your thoughts were on your own avatar when you ponder it from some elses eyes sorry rambling and random this morning. sleep deprivation makes me wierd

let the fetters fall where they will, when they put me down there, under the 6 foot hill, or perhaps to hang there on the hook, trim me gall bladder gone forsook, at the university... a course ol Halliwell, says he took.... but i swore to steal him from the drawer, bring him home, yes once more, lower him beneath the door, in the backhoe hole ol chook, long as me back holds out for sure, Ol Halliwell neath the door...
