Review of Fairy-Tale Ending  
Review by Ben Rankin
Rated: ASR | (4.0)
I like it. A creative spin to our most beloved fairytales. I don't think most people perceive the fairy tales this way but someone ought to. The princes can't just be kissing women without their consent. I applaud you.

This is an enchanting piece of poetry that you have written. "Keep your calm, swallow your pride,
The woods you search for have already died." is my favorite line in this because it is a great conclusion o such a good poem. Keep up the good work!

This Easter look at Romans 5:6-8 it is a great reminder of God's greatness and love when he died on the cross. This was a very nice poem that describes the sacrifice our God made for us. Keep up the creative work!

I love this. I have read a book on the Holocaust, "Faith and Doubt of Holocaust Survivors." This poem managed to capture the seriousness and sadness of the Holocaust. Overall the poem is written beautifully. Keep up the good work!

Review of King David  
Review by Ben Rankin
Rated: E | (3.5)
Good poem! I always have admired David in the Bible but of course, he was a broken man such as everyone else. Good job telling the story, as well as the happy ending of redemption.

Review of THE MIGHTY OAK  
Review by Ben Rankin
Rated: E | (5.0)
Frankly, this work is beautiful I can not pick a favorite line, nor can I find a single flaw. If I had to pick a favorite line it would be the introduction, "As I gaze upon this wondrous sight, bitter scars of life I see,
this mighty oak that God did make, this tall majestic tree." Keep up the good work!

Review of The Affair  
Review by Ben Rankin
Rated: E | (4.0)
The ending was a hilarious twist; most readers would definitely picture the mother as being younger like I did. I enjoyed the story thoroughly. Just make sure you use quotations marks in your dialogue. Keep up the good work!

Review of Peace on Earth  
Review by Ben Rankin
Rated: ASR | (4.0)
"Peace is promised in all the sacred scriptures" I like how this line came after you described war. This poem represents the biblical accuracy that war will be common until Christ comes back. This was a very nice piece of work! Keep up the creativity!

Everyone needs motivation from time to time; "Don't be negative" certainly takes a stab at motivating people. I agree with your words when you say, Don't look over one's shoulders and when you say stop saying can't. This was a very nice piece you wrote. Keep up the good work!

Review of Redemption  
Review by Ben Rankin

I love the poetic way this work describes repentance and God's grace. The language you used in this work is lovely, and the poem flows well. My favorite parts of this poem are the first three paragraphs. Keep up the good work!

Review of I Will Dance  
Review by Ben Rankin
Rated: E | (3.5)
I really enjoy this work. The story brings off feelings of random joy in a world that is so cynical. I suppose that's the message right? You are going to dance and be happy regardless of what people have to say about it, and that is really cool.

Review by Ben Rankin
Rated: E | (4.0)
I love poems that paint pictures in people's minds and have deep meaning; this poem is one of those. The way I interpreted this poem is that it is illustrating the feeling of being "born again." That may not be what you had in mind though. The way you described a phoenix was very poetic. This reminded me of "song of old troll" by JRR Tolkien (you might have already heard of it) because of the way you illustrated a fictional creature.

Review of Fallen Warrior  
Review by Ben Rankin
Rated: ASR | (3.0)
Beautiful, and tragic. "Warrior that once stood strong Warrior that once stood proud, Warrior once beloved by all" These lines hit home for me: this poem makes me think of all the lives we lost, and all the sacrifices that have been made. Keep up the good work!
