    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!
