Review of My "V" Dream  
Review by Morningstar
Rated: E | (5.0)
This is a very interesting and insightful piece! Thank you for writing it because it shows the importance of accepting others as they are. However, it doesn't necessarily mean we have to like or approve of who they are and what they stand for. The good Lord says that we are to love our neighbors but He didn't say we had to like them.

Thanks for writing this; a very interesting piece!

This is a very interesting poem; someone seeing the past, present and future of themselves. Of course, this can't be done but it is truly an interesting thought. I wonder, if we could see the future, would we change our ways or would we continue on with our daily lives, ignoring what will be coming?

An intriguing idea!

Well done! Thanks so much for writing this.

Review of Grammie Decisions

I love this piece because there is such truth and humor in it! I have gone through similar experiences and I can so relate. I sometime begin a project with good intentions but find I just don't have the aptitude to do it...

Thanks so much for writing this!

Review of Ghost Love  
Review by Morningstar
Rated: 13+ | (5.0)
This is a sad but beautiful poem. So many people, every day, get caught up and die with drugs. My brother did and I will always miss him.

Thank you for writing this; it is a good reminder of what can happen when drugs take over your life.

Nice piece about one's disposition. I really like you words, "Tears roll down my face with the realization That the position of my disposition Had never shifted at all it was me..."

Perhaps happiness, peace and other positive qualities are always there; but it is up to "us" to tap into them?

Well done and makes one think about attitude and life.

Review of Friendship  
Review by Morningstar
Rated: E | (5.0)
I like this poem. It has truth and beauty in it. Best friends are indeed a gift from God. They can, as you say, make you laugh when you thought you could never laugh again. Best friends help you to see that life is worth living, no matter how cruel others are to you or anyone.

Well done!

This is a sad but true statement for many. I,for one, am noticing this as I grow older and am searching for ways to be happy, as I did when I was younger. Some things that help are watching old soaps that I used to watch, taking walks outside, exercising inside when I can and eating foods that are supposed to make you feel happier like yogurt, whole grains, nuts and cottage cheese. Seems to help a bit.

What a wonderful article and tribute to a loving husband! Like some, I have a husband like that and I can't bear to think how I will continue on without him. Of course, I will but it will be extremely difficult. We have no children but we have many wonderful and happy memories.

Thanks again for sharing such beautiful words! You have given me a story that I will remember for a long time.

Review of Jim's Chair  
Review by Morningstar
Rated: E | (5.0)
What a neat story! This is so beautiful; as i read it I can visualize a picture of your husband sitting in the chair and later, seeing you in the chair and feeling safe and secure.

That is somewhat what I see in my husband who loves sitting in a certain area of our leather couch or leather chair. I can see that he feels safe and happy there and that makes me feel good. Should he go before me, I will never give it away, for I will see him sitting there and it will give me great peace.

Wonderful story!

This is an interesting story that speaks of a father and daughter relationship. The relationship is not always positive but in some cases it is loving, kind and helpful.

Your story could be expanded more, if you wanted to. The dialogue is good and keeps the reader, reading.

I love your letter, "Dear Friend." It is filled with warmth, love, compassion and hope. Such Christian words you don't see anymore. Yes, this letter was meant for me and it has brightened my day so much!

Thank you!

Thanks be to God for His grace!

I'm not sure if I have read this before; however, I am glad that I read it. I have suffered from anxiety and depression for many years and reading this has given me another insight to how depression can affect one's life--how it holds you down.

I am turning to God more and reading the Bible and quoting from it and I find that it helps. With God's help, I am not going to allow depression to keep me back.

I hope you, too, are feeling better from depression. It is an insidious illness but it can be overcome.

Thank you for writing this; I think your words will open the eyes of many.

God Bless,

Review of The Bus  
Review by Morningstar
Rated: E | (5.0)
There are a lot of quiet and not so quiet, emotions in your poem. What I go from reading this is that certain emotions cannot be shared and when it is time to leave, it is simply the time to move on. I send my condolences to you concerning your mom. I lost my mom and dead several years ago, as well as my brother and I still grieve and miss them but, as you noted, one must go on.

The journey from loss is a lonely one but a higher power helps.

Thanks so much for writing this; there are good and healing words in your work!

Review of “I Love You”  
Review by Morningstar
Rated: E | (5.0)
This is a very honest and heart-rendering poem! I can relate to you a bit on this one. I loved my mother but seldom did I ever hear her say to me, "I love you." I couldn't talk to her about things that bothered me so after awhile I gave up and turned to my grandma for comfort and help. I feel blest that I could turn to grandma.

I am glad you wrote this because I think it might help those who read it, who are going through similar circumstances.

Review of Flight  
Review by Morningstar
Rated: E | (5.0)
Your poem is a beautiful reminder of God and His creations--man, nature and this world. Such a wonderful reminder of "How great thou art!"

Sometime when I am feeling low, I look out my window and say to myself, "Everything you see and everything you don't see; God created. Seconds later, I feel so much better, knowing the beauty and wonderful of a creator who has no limitations at all!

Well done!

Review of Take Thou Thy Son  
Review by Morningstar
Rated: E | (5.0)
Wonderful and insightful poem! You made a wonderful point at the last--"A greater plan that's too obscure to see Keeps us in faith and trusting of Hill still.

That is the whole point, isn't it? Trusting in Him.

Well done! Thanks so much for writing this.

Review of GATES OF REASON  
Review by Morningstar
Rated: E | (5.0)
I like this poem; there are real truths here. I especially like your words, "When real substance is shadowed, When gates of reason are narrowed."

Our society has not so slowly regressed into what I call, regression. We are no longer progressing as human beings; but regressing to a state of entropy.

Good words! Thank you for writing this.

Your words are very interesting and detail about a relationship that was, perhaps, doomed from the beginning. I don't know; just guessing here. But, your words are compelling, sad and heartfelt. As I read this, I feel sorrow for a relationship that might have made it; very well done!

I like this poem because I can so relate to it when I fell in love with someone a long time ago. Those butterfly feelings, I still feel and it is a nice feeling!

Review of I am...  
Review by Morningstar
Rated: E | (5.0)
I like your words in your poem; you want this relationship to grow and as you wrote, "I am someone who you could fall in love with But I am willing to take it slow."

Those are good and true words because in any relationship, for it to grow, it takes time, effort and a lot of love.

Well done!

There are some real truths in your poem. I personally think that materialism has taken over the lives of many and have replaced God and His teachings. Human beings are still here but many are empty of goodness and other "fruits of the spirit."

Well done and you offer a wonderful question, "Where the humans have gone?"

Review of Down Memory Lane  
Review by Morningstar
Rated: E | (5.0)
So beautiful and sad but a pure joy to read! You have such lovely memories and no one can take them away. My husband and I have no children but in the Bible God says that if a woman has no children, every child she sees, is hers. I love those words.

Thank you so much for writing this. I also send my condolences to you concerning your husband. Being separated from one's spouse has got to be difficult and so sad.

God Bless you for writing this..

Review of Advice on a Train  
Review by Morningstar
Rated: E | (5.0)
What a fascinating piece! So creative and it gives a touch of reality to an "unreal" and strange situation. You could turn this into a story if you wanted to and it would be great!

Thanks so much for writing this! Such an interesting and intriguing read.
