Since I suspect who might have written this (although it could be someone else too) I'd like the author to know I loved this - all the way through until the last stanza.

I don't usually like to leave even a tiny critique because sometimes others will focus only on that bit of suggestion.

But the last stanza threw me off somewhat. There is such a build up of sin and evil, and then such a short reference to The Power that sets free. And when he faded away it didn't seem to fit. I would have liked Victory to be the one left standing - Powerful and in sight for all to see.

And although I know it's true, (somewhat) the newborn refrence was sad. It would have helped the reader to read of a different target.

With so many reads and not any comments I just wanted to give my opinion since I liked this so much. Love, Pat

I'm speechless...excellent doesn't quite cover it.
This is truly beautiful. Not only do I love it passion and creativity, but it overflows with spiritual truth. And being old-fashioned, I guess, I still like best poetry that rhymes.

God has given you a gift of insight that can be used to lift up those who fear there is no way out. I pray you will use it to its full.

This is excellent, Kenn. It poetically captures the work of the Great Phycisian.
