The ending to this is beautiful..
the poem as a whole is quite something else I'll admit;
But the ending was beautifully written.
I love the way you intertwined so many things in here with your words..
great write. You have amazing talent.
Seriously...just...WOW! I don't even know where to begin with expressing how amazing this poem is. I've read it at least a handful of times and I still can't find the right words...but...
This is just down right phenomenal, girl.
Everything about it.
From the layout to the metaphors to the growth we witness you experiencing as we read from the beginning to the end. Plus I really love the free flow of it...almost like a poetic rap...I found myself tapping my feet while I read it and reading the "aye" part with some attitude. I was nodding along with every line and hanging on to every word...and several times found myself saying "you go girl" lol.
I want to list out all of my favorite lines but I would just end up copying and pasting the majority of your poem into this comment and it would be too long.
All I can say is...once again...WOW. This is amazing work and I feel like you were really in your element as you wrote this.
Awesome awesome awesome!
Write more poems and post them, okay? You are very talented! :)
