A humbling call for all of God's children to answer. How can we allow ourselves to be the blame for yet another's eternal suffering?

Thank you for sharing, and God bless,

OK,Kenn. Time to give the rest of us a chance, here. LOL You've done it again - another brilliant entry. This one was chilling, powerful, and very real. Should make everyone stop and think about those around us who slip into that fire every day. We've got a job to do! Wonderful piece. (Big surprise. :-))

Wow. This is great Kenn. Awesome as usual!
Wonderful, Kenn!! There's a distinct flavor of Dickens in this eerily gripping poem. Your skillfully chosen words have brought this dark scene to life right before our eyes. You have the marvelous ability to keep your reader in the palm of your pen...er, hand! LOL! Another home run for sure!
Such incredible atmosphere. I'll be reading all your other poetry - I have much to learn!
perfection as always!

This is a very touching poem. It has always amazed me when I read great poetry, as I've never been a big fan. Yet, this piece, reminds me so much of King David's Psalms...so very much filled with passion and feeling. You have a special gift...one that I am almost sure you have in common with that man that God noted as one after His own heart.
