A lovely poem. Beautiful descriptions, beautiful message.
You've given voice to every man's conflict. I heard echoes of Paul's inner conflict in your poem. Lots of descriptive phrases. The last three lines are among my favorite, and a fitting end to the piece.
At first I did not know where this was going...the further I read, the clearer it became... until the which point, all I could say was "awesome."
Very descriptive imagery that echoes the truth that a living sacrifice will always want to get up off the altar.
Eloquent, exceptional, exquisite. An unusual but appealing start leading to the triumphant surrender of self to love. This has 'I wish I had written that' stamped all over it. Or is that my self speaking?
Wow what A powerful piece!

Congratulations for placing 7th in Masters and 11 overall!
