This is such a well written poem as well as very creative. I love it how you were able to create such meaningful words out of a simple letter, and although the letter Y represents different things each time, all of the stanzas and their ideas seem to be incredibly well connected. It takes an incredible skill to be able to come up with a poem like this, extremely well done, it's really a pleasure to have the chance to read such poems. I just adore the imagery and visuals that Hannah creates throughout this and this was really a breath of fresh air to read. I really enjoyed this and thought that it was incredibly unique and well written.

Clever! It drives me nuts when people just write "Y" and I let go of that pet peeve to appreciate the art of your poem here. I thought this piece was really interesting, clever and unique. It has a few cliches (fork in the road for example), but it has a lot of new ideas rolled into it. I love the part about the wishbone donating hope - great use of 'donate' there. This poem is another poem highlighted this week that is very relatable - it's just one of those things we all do - ask why? Why do things happen? Sometimes it does seem like life is playing a sick joke and comes back with slaps in the face.. but I love that there is also a slight sense of hope in this poem. This is really awesome
