The way this poem is written, hits the reader with
two sets of emotions. One which is happiness the drawing of arcs by a lonely girl who is different and the other of sadness, that sadness portrays that girl's world looking for help.
All in all this poem is very touching with images for the reader to see and feel...nice work.

This is a really beautiful poem amreen. The details were very vivid overall. I'll look to the positive. Its really amszing how you took something so simple and wrote this. The love you have for this little girl must be huge. The way you focus on the drawing is wonderful because it's really hard to focus on one thing without going astray. Anyways I liked how you compare the drawing to hope as it shows even the smallest things can give us hope. Well done
It's always interesting to find out who wrote what after a poetry challenge :)
This poem, for me, sums up how I imagine the loneliness of autism might feel. I picture a child sat on her own just drawing. No one really understands her, but to herself the drawings make perfect sense.
There is a mix of happy feelings and sad feelings- the mentions of things like "rainbows" and "hope" make her drawing seem happy, and I picture her being very involved in what she's doing, but at the same time it creates that image of seclusion and loneliness. I know that when I'm drawing it can often just feel like it's me and the paper :)
