To optimize the content and the grammar and the rhyme

    The poem itself is very hearty and understandable and itself is nice and beautiful from such a great mind who might have several occasions of helplessness of human life. Really expect more, through poems and likes to be an asset to the reader's club. Thank you doctor. (Report) Reply

    Excellently written and so true that poems feel like they are the childrenof poets, some are fine but some we wish weren't ours. This one is so brilliant I wished it was mine. (Report) Reply

    Well, poems are expressions of inner-self. Whichever way you expressed yourself, it's left for others to judge, no condemnation. (Report) Reply

    So many Poet's efforts come to mind as I read this that my comments are morphing as I read. Robert Service, A E Housman. And of course some of my own. How about mine - Who am I -

    I really like this poem and can completely relate. I think you are an awesome poet. Sometimes, in other people's poetry, the words go over my head and i don't quite get what they are trying to say. I really like your style, very straightforward and easy to comprehend. (Report) Reply
