Cuts Like A Knife (Short Story) - 5/4/2005 4:44:19 PM
This is so symbolic and impressive, the arrow flying from the bow!
What a mature and wise tale.
The fight and pain of independant thought, lifestyle, and stance, yet at the same time, the bond of blood...
No wonder you are proud.
And I am sure this does not represent Mr A Hall.....he is too progressive a dad for this backward thinking lol
Cuts Like A Knife (Short Story) - 2/20/2005 6:03:23 AM
Very well written! ~Z~
Epitaph (Short Story) - 1/12/2005 1:05:38 PM

Aaron, you are certainly a very talented young writer! Keep it up and if you want to be a professional writer, go for it! You'll do great. :)

Aaron and Anthony,
Cuts Like A Knife (Short Story) - 1/11/2005 9:14:26 AM
Aaron...you have captured emotions so deep in this piece, that I got
a lump in my throat reading it. "Been there, done that"
You have the potential to become a great writer, I believe, and (when you are accepting autographs from an admiring batch of fans)I hope I can be in the line-up.
Truly enjoyable story!
Cuts Like A Knife (Short Story) - 1/11/2005 9:11:16 AM
your son has gotten your talent! a poignant, compelling read; well done!

Nice writing! Enjoyed it :-)
Hello, itís Me (Article) - 1/18/2007 1:11:08 AM
The end of a relationship often fosters bitterness, but when we are able to examine ourselves that bitterness is replaced by spiritual and psychological growth as well as forgiveness to the other party. Eventually we may also forgive ourselves for our sleepiness and blindness. That's what I see in this piece, Anthony, the path of spiritual growth. It's a thoughtful, touching write, and I'm glad you posted it again. I'm sure it will give other readers good food for thought. ~~Nordette
1984 - revised (Poetry) - 6/7/2010 5:07:58 PM
"We should just give in, Big-Brother will certainly win"

It's 1984 all over again.

Sun, Wind and Moon (Poetry) - 3/12/2009 12:21:53 PM
I love this poem. Some wonderful metaphors, so romantic and well penned.
1984 - revised (Poetry) - 2/19/2009 12:48:31 PM
This is a great poem! It is true that there are signs of Orwell's book, 1984. For instance, there are many cameras, video devices and other ways that the government or others can find out so many things about each person. Yet, we still live in a great country and I still have a love for our country! There are times when big brother watches out for us, yet in a day and age of identity theft and fraud, there are many people who have access to our information for their own benefit.
Yet, even in all of that, we still live in the best country in the world.
Secret Lovers (Poetry) - 2/12/2009 4:02:01 PM
This poem is filled with passion, desire and romance! Bravo!
Dreams For Only A Buck (Poetry) - 2/12/2009 4:00:53 PM
This poem has captured my heart! You are very creative, and you write in such a way that opens up my mind! You really know how to capture the readers attention and express an important idea!
Fallen Star (Poetry) - 2/12/2009 3:58:43 PM
Bellisimo!! You obviously have passion with every word that you write. My favorite part of this poem are the words:
"You float above the fawning masses Who bathe in your brilliant light
But like a comet that quickly passes
All too soon youíre gone from sight. " You are sending a powerful message with so many spices!
There are many people in life who might not be genuine, or they lose their way as they get caught up with the attention, fame, or the "ardor" without loving others in a genuine way. Unfortunately, some people do not care about who they have hurt along the way.
This is a powerful message, and I will be tracking your work. I admire your writing style. Please stop by my den again sometime!

A terrific poem.
Has such rhythm and I love your choice of words.

Romantic-spiritual surreal and symbolitical composition of poetic

very intense and romantic, wonderful pen.
Black Man (Poetry) - 1/30/2006 10:33:53 AM
A m a z i n g. Sad and frustrated as you must have been while
writing the poem -- angry? --, you kept it simple. Yherein lies its power. By choosing a few perfect words, you have
created a masterpiece that could move a heart of stone. Those that are not moved are robots! Write ON!! 'Pea' <3
Black Man (Poetry) - 1/29/2006 12:34:22 PM
Yes, you are "one, too"...Anthony...and in God's eyes (as you know so well) we are all the same color at heart. This is a fine piece of poetry.
I see your son has now joined the Den. He is good...but then again, what can one expect? I popped into the Den after a long absence taken to publish a few books...but may return one of these days. Had fun visiting here.
Black Man (Poetry) - 1/28/2006 10:23:18 AM
A passionate write, Anthony, that I'm sure will resonate with people concerned about some of our black men who've embraced corroded values. I like how you stated at the end that you are one too. This prevents the poem from being an "us-them" write, thick with condemnation, and reveals that the heart of the poet is with (in prayer/in the trenches) his fellow man in the struggle to overcome poverty of spirit and to rise to his rightful place of honor from which he honors the ancestors, his family, himself, and God.
As you may know, I already have a link to one of your other poems on my Kings and Kindreds page.. :-) ~~Nordette

It is then my mind awakens
To reality so it seems
Then all day I long for slumber
So I can love you in my dreams

Community Spirit (Poetry) - 1/4/2006 12:37:25 PM
Such depth, thanks for sharing.
Community Spirit (Poetry) - 12/7/2005 5:41:32 AM
I often feel this way, Anthony. I think I'm an extrovert/introvert somehow. LOL. This is a strong poem. Singular/celibate/the one is good when we're content in it. ~~Nordette

Dreams For Only A Buck (Poetry) - 5/11/2005 1:14:10 PM
"...I show them how to take back life
In their hands so they can feel
to create dreams their very own
will make life much more real
sadly hearts and minds are constantly
hit by the ĎHopelessnessí truck
with money in hand, theyíll stand in line
buying my dreams for just a buck..."
So true. I'v been teaching goal setting for years. Some just don't give a damn.
Thoughtful work and I love the rhyme.

The theme, the beautifully presented memories-in-verse, is a gift
beyond calculation, Anthony. You have been given a gift in poetry, and to benefit others with it is the supreme showing of gratitude for what the Creator bestowed.
A fine job!

this poem works well ... the continuity of voice and subject matter are very effective ..
Silent Significance (Poetry) - 4/21/2005 12:36:34 PM
"Silent Significance" flows on from a heart that pumps love, poemizes sublimity and poetizes the essence of life. It is an inspired, inspiring bountiful wondering of poetic grand.

Father, I Write (Poetry) - 4/12/2005 5:47:02 AM
Dearest Mr. Hall, I could have written this poem over 70 years ago. However,in my case it would have been to my mother who left my father. I feel your pain. I did meet her 30 years ago. Keep writing.
Not a Good Night (Revision) (Poetry) - 3/31/2005 6:43:54 PM
A well written work. It gave me a chuckle because the philosophy expressed reminds me of my late beloved father. R
Not a Good Night (Revision) (Poetry) - 3/22/2005 2:34:19 PM
An enjoyable reading on thoughts of life and death, flowing under the rhythm of the drums of curiosity, entering the tunnel of imagination like a firefly through the shadows of doubt.
"Not a Good Night (Revision)" is a good poetic meal for the evening.
Healthy Springtime, Poet!

Not a Good Night (Revision) (Poetry) - 3/22/2005 8:07:32 AM
Revised, or unrevised, this is a powerfully potent piece
And I sure hope it is written about an allegorical figure,

Anthony...what you have expressed so beautifully here depicts a
man who is still very much in power. Aging becomes you, my 'brother.'
May your words continue to sustain not only you and your peers at AD,
but your lovely children and grandchildren.
Warriors Age (Poetry) - 1/26/2005 6:36:19 AM
This is rather interesting and true about the coming of age.
Warriors Age (Poetry) - 1/25/2005 8:59:22 PM
I've missed your poetry Ant. Excellent poem! Albeit it tinged with sadness it ends on a triumphant note. I'm so happy that you've seen positive in getting older (lets not use euphemisms heehee). To worry about looks and all of that is pure vanity. What is inside only gets better as time progresses. Thanks for providing much food-for-thought. You are indeed a mighty lion and your roar is still heard.
AND write more!!! ;-)
Warriors Age (Poetry) - 1/25/2005 8:52:15 PM

Fallen Star (Poetry) - 11/30/2004 8:27:09 AM
One of your best, Anthony.
Yes, it is a shame that some feel themselves worthy of being
worshipped. We know the scriptures relating to this, do we not?
I won't even try to make a 'guess' at who you are referring to here,
but your poem makes some strong points, whoever it is directed at.
Keep up the fine work.

The tragedy of a falling star - masterly penned. Stars are people with a larger-than-life personality belonging to them and others. Whilst the image can be splendid, the real person's soul is dying behind a wall of glamour. Franz

How does that song go.....oh yeah

I've known "stars" aka egotistical space heads like that.......
eventually they burn out....and nobody notices.....

Anthony this is a gorgeous poem and a glimpse of an incredible heart. So glad you found someone with equal depths.
The Same Doors (Poetry) - 7/18/2004 12:37:22 AM
Anthony, you know how much I admire your work and right now I could wax lyrical about the eloquence and beauty of your words but what I really wanted to say to you here is this: It is good and it is right that we should keep the door to our hearts locked. Too many abuse the deepest chamber and cause at times irreparable damage (heaven knows we have done it ourselves). The journey within is a wondrous one, and one you discover with the one you allow entry to. I have always believed that when we discover others, we discover ourselves. Happy journey precious adventurer! Chanti
The Same Doors (Poetry) - 7/18/2004 12:13:54 AM
A superb write, it's not often that one finds what one seeks, so fully in a mate. Here is wishing you the best.

and something more...

"Children of the Barrios" delivers a message of humanity and social responsibility on the road of a poem.
An enjoyable reading from a magnificent poetic writing.
Healthy Creativive life to all.

Wow! Anthony...I donated some copies of my first children's book
"Fredi," about a tree frog, to this same organization. Fulfilling,
isn't it? Made me feel better than those sold at signings. I'll wager
that's the way it was for you, too. Reading is the key to a whole new
world for these kids...and...some adults, too!
This is a lovely poem, "thinking" poet.
Children of the Barrios (Poetry) - 6/30/2004 4:52:00 AM
Excellently written my friend. :)
Children of the Barrios (Poetry) - 6/30/2004 1:29:59 AM
A wise poem Anthony, from a wise young man.
Children of the Barrios (Poetry) - 6/29/2004 10:08:42 PM
What a Lovely tribute to these children and volunteers! ...Strong last stanza! ...You have a grand, kind heart, Dear Poet! ...I was very touched by this write! Thanks for sharing it!
Children of the Barrios (Poetry) - 6/29/2004 9:19:14 PM
Nice to know there are wonderful volunteers in the world like yourself lending a hand to these causes.
The Spook Who Sat By The Door (Poetry) - 6/24/2004 3:00:02 PM
Thank you for suggesting I read this. Wow! I wish that I could express adequately how this made me feel. It is thought provoking and disturbing. Why should man be judged by his skin colour? ...and yet it happens still.
I am looking forward to reading more from you. Thank you so much for commenting on my work.

The Heart in the Glass Chest (Part I) (Poetry) - 6/16/2004 3:19:32 PM
Wow, this was fantastic. This was a short, short fiction poem.
I think you'd get paid good $$$ if you submit a poem like this
to paying magazines.
Father, I Write (Poetry) - 6/12/2004 5:26:46 PM
Anthony, this is such an emotional and powerful write, Dear Poet! ...written from your heart and soul! ...brought tears!
Blessings to you,
Father, I Write (Poetry) - 6/11/2004 4:05:29 AM
this is a wonderful write. so heart felt and so much pain.
Father, I Write (Poetry) - 6/10/2004 8:16:06 PM
This is a precious gem of a poem Anthony! It should be read
by every father! One of the best I've ever read on this topic.
Poetry is sewn in your soul! Bravo!
Father, I Write (Poetry) - 6/10/2004 7:30:47 PM
If only fathers knew what they meant to their children...I really like this one.
Father, I Write (Poetry) - 6/10/2004 5:14:53 PM
A poignant and powerful piece of writing, Anthony!
BTW...my father and brother are named Anthony. I liked the
name enough to give it to the antagonist in my Roman novel.
And the Jello...it comes in all kinds of flavors...whatever
the taste buds dictate.
And thanks for the comment on my poem.
Father, I Write (Poetry) - 6/10/2004 5:03:55 PM
Anthony, this is a great write. come read my poem "letter to my Father"
Father, I Write (Poetry) - 6/10/2004 4:23:45 PM
This is an excellent piece, Anthony. Your talent is evident. I understand your pain but in a somewhat different light. An incredibly powerful last line. Thank you.
Father, I Write (Poetry) - 6/10/2004 1:49:16 PM
Very touching write Anthony. I lost my father to suicide and your poem expressed my emotions. I wished that my father was still here... I cannot understand why he left me? Why he gave up? Thank you for sharing this with us. Brilliant.
Father, I Write (Poetry) - 6/10/2004 12:04:42 PM
excellent poem, Anthony.
Father, I Write (Poetry) - 6/10/2004 11:31:20 AM

Father, I Write (Poetry) - 6/10/2004 10:24:28 AM
You are a indeed a poet......and yes writing does help, at least for myself I find it a distraction........all your emotions are so evident in this write, it was like reading a diary, or a letter that never got mailed...........
well done.....by the son!

This could easily be a hit tune, Tony...is there music to it?
You amaze me, man!

"The Spook Who Sat By The Door" says it as it flows through its contents. The message is delivered to whom it may concern.
I never thought that soul had colors.

Brilliant parallel, thought provoking flavored with humor. I like the passing on of the baton. This is just great writing.
This is Fatherhood? (Poetry) - 5/10/2004 3:28:13 PM
Great job. I enjoyed the way you expressed the theme as well as the rhyme. It almost sounded like a cadence called by soldiers marching in formation.

I am so impressed with this piece of work! The romance you created between Nature and the Elements is very clever and insightful.
I enjoyed this so much, I read it three times.
Romantic and perfectly penned. A keeper!
