    Judging Comment:

    Poetry could be praised for the images and metaphors. Poetry could be praised the form, the rhythm and rhyme. Poetry could be praised for being original and unique. But most importantly poetry should be praised for being honest, true and heartfelt. MA never fails to surprise me with her heartfelt poems.
    At the beginning I felt sadness and disappointment. Every part is worded beautifully. Then there was love and persistence.
    “Some hearts can never
    fully develop underwater,”
    What a statement!!! Leading to a powerful ending.
