A most interesting poem, you've packed a lot of deep meaning into this. One read is not enough.
Bonnie Bowden09/16/11
Original poem. I liked the way it flowed. Very thought-provoking.

Nice job! I enjoyed it, and the way you layed it out.

My heart is partial to poems; especially poetic praise to the Lord. Beautiful! God Bless~

This is really deep.

Very creative. I think you may have veered from the subject a bit. Sometimes, repetition works for a poem. Although I have little expertise in that area, I'm not sure the repetitive questions added to the intent of your poem; especially the last few stanzas. Perhaps, replacing "is" for "this" where possible, would improve the "message," at least for me.:-)

We certainly do need to "guard our tongues," because someday we will face a Holy God
