This is my second entry into Frank Atanacio's Poetry Month.

I wrote this after I read the following verse by tobusiness.

Up There or Down There

God has Angels, Satan has minions

Only I can

Decide

It is up to me, it is

Now or never

My thought is should I float to Heaven, or

End it in Hell.

Roads will lead the proper

Course which

Years of my life have written.

Ghost Riders in the Sky

Which direction do you choose?

      Indeed. A timeless message, The God and His mercy.

      Voted up and beautiful.

      Peace with us.

      Thank you Peachy. You got me curious so I had to look and I did not do that but that is a good idea. Thank you for reading it and what you thought.

      Have a nice day. :-)

      That is how I do see it Deb but, strangely, I wrote it as a verse when I was competing in Frank Atanacio's poem. Otherwise I do not know whether I would have. Maybe it was a sign from above.

      Thank you, I was writing that only for fun in Frank Atanacio's poem. I have not written since elementary school and I just gave it a shot. If that is not your style then there is another one you might like better. Have you heard of Sunny River? Select a theme and write about your butterflies. For someone who wishes that she could write it, your profile name already sounds poetic.

      I am glad that you liked it. If your poems are on here I will look for them.

      Hello Kevin,

      You have a neat piece here, and it is very thought provoking. It keeps you thinking after reading it, and makes me wonder more where you are coming from in it. I wish I could write poetry! I have done only a very small amount over time, and it comes when it does and not before.

      Thanks again for sharing, and I am glad you got to be such a part of that challenge. While I did not participate, I did see some very neat poems.

      Thanks for the comment Phyllis. I was determined to figure out why it was not. I finally did!

      Speaking of tip box, I hope that you got my post about the malware. I figure the Amazon message was unimportant, I just wondered why. Thanks.

      Very good job, Kevin. I admire your stamina in sticking to it till you got it published and featured. Well done.

      When I had my tip box, I often got that message also about an Amazon capsule in first position. It always went away after I entered my first capsule. It is just a quirk of the system.

      I keep trying one photo at a time now but but it seems that I will have to look for others.

      By the way, do you know why several of my 'start a Hubs' would have a warning that I have an Amazon, eBay, or link in the first position when I do not use them and all I have is the title?

      Bless your heart. Things can get a bit tricky here on HP at times until we figure things out. I know I am still finding out new things each day after two years! LOL

      Have a wonderful week ahead. I need to get busy publishing something myself! LOL

      Thank you for understanding Faith. At first I thought that I was duplicating something in my own Hub. I finally found out that it was somewhere on the Internet. I had to keep deleting the URL and get the words correct in my verse.

      I will say having fun. The recent 2-3 which I have read I broke out laughing because I became tongue tied. Thinking it was me, I read the lines about 3-4 times.

      Oh, Kevin, I understand about such issues and I am sorry you had such a time. However, I am thrilled you have entered a second time! I think it is perfect following tobusiness, but it would be great following wherever you felt you needed to follow. We are all just having fun during this wonderful month of poetry!

      Thank you Faith. I would have entered it a couple of weeks ago but I was having problems getting it published. Jodah's poem? Does it follow his better than tobusiness? I felt like writing it after I read hers.

      The pics seemed okay but when I put in the captions there was an 'Overly promotional' warning. I had simply removed them the the first time since the main problem was with my poem duplicating something on the Internet. When I deleted the original and there was no more duplicate warning, I was just glad to publish it.

      It seems to be featured now. I have been out all day.

      Profound poem. I did not realize it was part of Frank's challenge until I read Jodah's poem. Yes, you can add photos at any time.

      Up and more, tweeting, pinning and sharing

      Thank you Jodah. Amazing, it is not even featured yet. I had to change it - twice, I think, - and the photos , etc. were not included because of problems. I was just glad to get it published. If it stays that is.
