My babysitter would read it to me, and had a particularly scary Gollum voice. I had nightmares for years about what people had in their pockets. I wrote my first poem after watching a TV documentary about an innocent man's execution. I was about ten, alone in the sitting room and the fire was burning in the hearth … honestly. This poor man was caught on camera before he was led off to die, and he said something like: 'I am going to meet my maker in a few hours and I pray that he has more mercy on you, then you've had on me. The poem is lost, but I do remember the last line: 'They will never know the voice of my innocence.
Later I read Tennyson's poem Despair and T. That was all in my teens. His poetry, even in translation, is astounding.
About Deborah Ann
I don't know of anyone else, apart from St John of the Cross, who has described man's spiritual condition and the essence of the mystical experience within the poetic aesthetic so 'perfectly'. Wojtyla's poetry, plays and writings on theatre provide a clear lens through which to look at and explore the question: what is meditative, or contemplative, art?

The mystery of language is that the creative power resides in words as they are expressed.
The Holy Spirit will gently lead and guide into 'all truth'. My dream for society is that the Church as a whole creates contexts other than its usual meetings to help people in the liberating, but often fraught, exploration inwards and God-wards.

Art can provide a 'wider' entrance for people into the community of faith; so often we expect people to squeeze through such a narrow door. My dream is that that the Church recognises more the spiritual function of art to bring more beauty into the world. There is an ever-strengthening culture of death out there.
The pillars of any culture of life are Beauty, Truth and Goodness, and Christian artists need to be supported, encouraged and prayed for. Art is crucial to any humane society. Without people learning the art of reflection and connecting with their inner selves through the Holy Spirit, I really don't hold out much hope for society. Poetry may bring wellbeing, because it brings truth, but it may also equally disturb.
Many poets are persecuted, in prison and have been killed by the authorities.

Arthur Burt said: 'You have to lay the track of truth for the train of grace to come'. I really like that. The truth, no matter how difficult or uncomfortable, will always bring a fresh experience of grace into your life. The role of poetry as 'truth-bringer' is important for me. The Bulgarian poet Geo Milev was imprisoned and later murdered for his poem September This poem describes the brutal suppression of the Bulgarian uprising against the military coup.
