Hello, Everyone

My name, is William Darnell Sr. I'm a retired carpenter, and a father of 5 grown children, 4 boys, and a beautiful daughter. My wife's passed away, 13 yrs now, so that makes me, a widower. My oldest, a son, is passed as well. I also have 6 grandchildren, 4 boys, and 2 beautiful granddaughter's. I've been writing poetry for around 20 yrs. My inspiration's God, my 7th grade English teacher, and my woodshop teacher. The greatest thing I have ever done, was married my wife, may she rest in peace, and the children she has given us. I was supposed to write a story of a tragedy that has happened to my family. But, having some difficulties. So, I'm just going to come right out and tell you. Two of my children had been raped, by a family member as some or maybe most of you might well know. My late wife's little brother done this. I hold myself responsible, most say, it wasn't my fault and I get that. But, the truth is, we knew. more to come... And, for this reason alone, that we knew, I hold responsible. I, as a father, husband, protector, and a man should have been assertive, regardless of my wife's feelings, having our children's best interest at mind, and said no, absolutely not! Ok, this is a Bio, an entry as to who I am, a briefing. I'll carry this story over to my blog. Anyways, that's me!

Best of Wishes,

PoetrySoup Staff, I'm ashamed of myself for not including you and I have to say this because it was rude of me in not to mention you, folks. So, to you as well, and for Arczis, our owners, Happy belated Easter! May God give you staff members, double portions of Blessings, because of my wrongdoings. Best of Wishes, William

Hello, Darlene! Sorry, this message finds you late, though; forgive me? That's fantastic that your niece came to see you. My Easter went well, I spent this year; with friends just up the hill from me. Nice time! It's great to hear you've adopted a cat, and really glad you two have bonded, seeing her age in this. My cat, I'm afraid, is a 29 whooping lbs. I hope you both have many years together; in such a loving bond. Thank you, for your visit, my friend, and comment. I have no denomination but being a Christain, as Christ Jesus was. But, it is an important day for the world, and I love Him and His Father, as God bartered His Son's life, for our sake in sin. Your comments and visits are always welcome my astute friend. Best of Wishes, William

Hi, Constance! Great to see you, and your visit here and your lovely comment. I have no denomination anymore. Christain, that's all I need, as our Savior give His life for us All. My views on religion are ritualistic, but those days you've mentioned, Good Friday, and His resurrection day, are the same. I believe truly in my heart though, I see everyone as non-denominational. But, it's all about what His Father has done, for our sake, and He bartered with His Son's life for the sin we are born into. But, "Jesus in His resurrection became Christ of an inherited Kingdom," where we will go, plus, I always say; "Christ Jesus." Love your comment as always, and your visits of course, and I love you, too! I want to love people like God, and Christ Jesus does. No judgments here by any means. Many Blessing to you and your family my friend. Best of Wishes, William
