I am in complete awe of what I have just read. So many great poets and prose writers have bared their souls in this anthology. Love shines above all else, even when a poet is surrounded by darkness, and seeking death, a small glimmer of light beckons, hope is found, and dark turns to the loving light of God. Aborted babies poem resonated through me. Yes, give that innocent life, that innocent had a soul at conception, a destiny, let the babe live, give for adoption if you must, but let it live. So many poems struck me deeply, and I am better for having read this book. Thank you.
