It might be a bit of a stretch for achievement, but still has a great message. Many good thoughts.

I admire anyone who can write music, but as a lay person, I have a hard time getting the feel of it unless I am hearing the actual music. Your message is good; I'm just not one who can "translate" if you will the words to what I can't hear. My downfall!

I think this piece is right on topic and very well done. The poetry in the chorus is excellent and compelling, and the imagery throughout is interesting. Good job. Slightly different and a little edgy, but very clear in it's meaning.

A very interesting twist on the topic. We cannot achieve anything when we allow our curiosity/ambition/"idol" worship to take away what we could have once we yield ourselves to God. Loved the imagery: "Winter of my content, image of all I idolize. fantasy dashed on a rock." Great lyrics that would do well when set to music.

This piece really touched me. Convicted me, might be a better way to say it. We wonder how those Israelites could leave the One True God for a "shiny piece of beef" (great line, btw), but then your line about looking in the mirror and seeing what we idolize? Man, this is good, really good!

This was brilliant on so many levels. The message, the words used to bring the poem to "life." I loved it. Creative, powerful and well done.
