Revision is in many ways the heart of the process. I will sometimes work off and on a specific poem for months before I feel it truly says what I want in the way I wish to say it.
I was working on a poem and asked an older friend to review it. He has written beautiful poetry for years. When he wrote this to me, I thought of how God has been revising me over the years. I am glad for the work He has done in me. I am glad to be continually revised until my life says exactly what God wants it to say.
