Hi Becky! I'm proud of you for remaining here at Poemhunter and I'm happy to read your poetry. I think you are a wonderful writer for your age and you have much to offer the world through your words. Thank you for posting your work here. Sincerely, Mary
Hi Becky. 'No help or appreciation'? Here it's offered in full! And I'm sorry if we got off to a tetchy start!
It's like PoHo says - you're already wise and speak the truth. It's just that this game called 'poetry' may rub off on you from other poets - to clothe that truth in the beauty of words and thought so that it touches the heart of everybody along with their head.
