Your poem is really great because you've expressed it in your own way. I think that yours are special, and it doesnt matter if you've made it obvious because thats how you wanted it to be. Don't let anyone tell you your poem isn't as special as other people's, because no matter what everyone's poems are special because they express themselves in thier own way. Not just one opinion counts. I mean HEY! you might not even take my advice!
Angela, you have a lot to say in your poetry but I think you say it in pretty obvious ways, so it doesn't seem all that special. There are some great poets on this site. I would suggest reading Li-Young Lee or Pablo Neruda or Sharon Olds or some of the other great ones and let them influence you. Learning from the masters will make you a better poet. You certainly have the potential.
