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

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