    Awww this is precious. Sometimes it seems that we just don't see eye to eye with our parents. I love the peacemaking ending of your poem. Very nice.

    You loved me with your silent words
    Protective acts of war
    When I thought I'd gone too far
    You loved me even more

    I loved the ending in this stanza Jenn.

    You, my father, I, your daughter
    Love held in between
    Confusion turned to understanding
    Chaos, to serene
    ^^^
    This ending is beauty!
    When we get older and become parents ourselves we begin to understand the difficult job our own parents had.

    Though we were angels weren't we Jenn *winks* ... lol
    I still shine my halo every now and then ... lol

    Loved the flow in this piece and the words are very touching !

    Wonderful read my friends

    It is nice when families can get past their differences and realize what matters most - Love....

    As usual, your rhyming isn't forced and the piece flows great. It is realistic and full of emotion. Definetly a piece many can relate to. Nice job!
