Poetry Critical 2.0

Hey guys, Donald here.

In a few weeks, this site will be 9 years old. 9 years! And I still know some of the earliest submissions by heart.

But, boy. That’s like 102 in web-years. So it’s time for something new. I’m building that something now with my nights-and-weekend minutes (and plenty of coffee). Buy me a cup?

Random Poem:

Divine I
propoet50

We shall never be in doubt of his presence
 1
As he surrounds thee with love
 2
When pain and sorrow
 3
Touches our lives and
 4
Tests our faith continuously.
 5
Oh great one, your existence
 6
Is part of our salvation, as us,
 7
The human race seeks absolution,
 8
For we are too proud
 9
To repent for our sins,
 10
As we have created this wolrd
 11
And shall destroy.
 12
Have mercy on us,  when the time comes
 13
To render our souls to you
 14
For you to cleanse and
 15
Accompany us
 16
To the heavens above.
 17
 
 
Believe in him and
 18
You shall be  rewarded.
