In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.
"'Alone in the Company of the Father' comes to mind as I stand, right now, gazing down towards my end. Only have my fears been presented in poetry before, but never in reality. I suppose reality had something to do with me writing such a poem, but never have I attempted this. I stand here in the presence of God and his company, deciding my fate. Do I jump? I begin to ask myself agonizing questions as I try and reach the Lord, looking for help. I wonder if He is really listening. I wonder if He cares. Does anyone? God's creations are supposed to be perfection, flawless, and yet I am the exact opposite."
