the truth
the light shines
the light shines
and the light (shines)
and beckons
through you
illuminated
the invitation clear
the way is clear

      Thank you movie master and molometer! I worked this piece out over a couple of months--and while there might be a name for this form I don't know what it might be--I had done a similar piece a while back using 2 columns that joined at the bottom in a single word--and this is just an extension of that idea--I couldn't figure out how to do this in Hubpages without using the table as a grid--I would have preferred columns without the table--If you know of a way to do that, please let me know--thanks again.

      Hello Audrey,

      Is there a name for this technique that you have used? or did you develop it yourself?

      The more I see it the more powerful the idea's become.

      Can I vote it up again? let's see.

      The answer is. Yes we/you can

      This is very interesting Audrey.

      I think you have managed to get

      Existentialism

      The Socratic Method

      And Christianity

      Into one Matrix. Bravo.

      Wow Audrey, I love this one , you are so gifted.

      This new year is seeing my experimenting with new genres of poetry ( new to me anyway)and I am having a great time.

      As well as composing my own ,reading the work of others is just as fulfilling and this one no exeption my friend!!

      Is there a name for this style or is it just your creation ???

      Great work which I have to vote up.

      Take care

      Eddy.

      Lovely poem. Expressed in a new form and with empahsis on action words. Finding a way in life is an everyday search for each one of us. Your poem has provided the perfect solution to find a way.
