Itís not how long you feel youíve been married,
Itís not how long a check out takes.
Itís not how long a burden youíve carried,
Itís not how long youíve been making mistakes.
it takes a heart to heal,
Itís not how long youíve been tired and sick.
Itís not how long youí
Itís not how long ve known the pain you feel,
Itís not how long you have to make this click.

Itís not how long the cancerís been winning,
Itís now how long until the next drug fix.
Itís not how long your world has been spinning,
Itís not how long until you next paid trick.


Purchased by Christ an ďInfinite Duration,Ē
Theyíll be no sickness, no sorrow, no pain.
Dining with the King of all the nations,
Thanking the Son who was brutally slain.

Melissa A Hendren

I like what you did here. Our duration of time is nothing, fleeting; compared to the "Infinite Duration" of victory Jesus paid on the cross. We can trust and rest in Him. I am not a whiz at poetry, but I can tell you spent a lot of time in deep thought working on this. I liked your word choices, too. Well done.

This is absolutely lovely. The message is beautiful!

It looks like you ran into a glitch or two when submitting, make sure you hit preview so you can see how your piece will look.If you don't enter the title you don't have to worry about accidently hitting submit until you've reviewed then when you're sure it's perfect enter the title and then hit submit.

You did such a nice job with the rhythm and the repetition was soothing. As someone who has chronic pain your poem really comforted me.

Also remember not to sign your name as it's supposed to be anonymous until the judging is complete, but don't fret too much, many of us have made similar mistakes.

Just keep writing it's obvious you have talent and a great passion.

Short but so powerful. I love how you chose such everyday "eternitites" to make ypur point. Well done!
