I like this. Your personification was outstanding. My perspective is that you don't ever have to worry about not being enough grace no matter what you've done, but back onto the poem. You used great metaphors, and your symbolism was nice. The only thing I say is don't just put yourself out there like its just a poem (relating to your description) Remeber everything you write is from inside of you.Emotions that live. IF not today, then yesterday and in a dark corner of your mind that you blocked away from your present status. PResent yourself as the greater writer you are and never shun your work as something just written. ;)
wOW! I think you have set a record in regards to visits ,but only a dismal 4 comments. Yes, I know, but at least you know you hit on the two most important words that spurs mankind on,such as HOPE and REDEMPTION. While in my read a picture of the painting of The Christ kneeling beside a stone in the Garden with a beam of light coming from above emblazened itself upon my memory. I began to think was this poem of yours the picture that Christ had in His mind at that moment of seemingly dispair.
Beautiful piece. So many people can relate to this, including myself. Although I've found a way to be in some light, I always find myself in the darkness. I loved the first part to where, There is hope. Very encouraging words. Liked this one a lot.
insanity has a good point, I liked the way those isolated lines sort of jumped out at you. It gives the reader time to stop, shocked with an image. The images are built up nicely, kind of creating a creepy feel from your words. I hope to see more!
