    Jerry, I received my first uncomplementing comment on my poemstoday and it was from you. It serves me right to have been a bit shoddy with my writing and to be too quick to have it published here in Poemhunter. I may not agree with all that you said but I do admire the candidness by which you have assessed my poem. I've been spoiled by the usual polite comments which really lead me to a fool's paradise. I learned from your frankness.
    Thanks and with much admiration I remain,

    Eddie Roa

    I don't think I have the right to judge people who have been in the world longer than I have, but I do hope my opinion matters to them, personally. Compared to most, I'm a tiny fraction of their age, and not very wise in terms of experience, but this is one thing all readers know-Jerry Hughes writes from his heart and always has the right words for what he wants to say. I've had one mentor in my short life so far, but from hereon, I have two...

    A reader always,
    -Leslie Ching-

    No my darling, I'm not the bravest man you've met, cos any bravery I have comes from your devotion to me. Thank you...

    Jerry Hughes is the bravest man I've met. I know, because I've been sitting by his bedside for what seems like forever watching him. I've witnessed his terror on the morning of surgery, his slowly dawning realization that half of him was missing, his agonizing, perplexing and always frustrating journey through the glitches of post ICU and his abiding determination that he's going to 'come back' from it all. I am privileged to be able to keep his bed warm while he's in rehab and I look forward for however long it takes to having him home with his family at Craig Avenue.

    Darling jerry. I have never loved you more. Your Allie Pie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ And a big kiss too from Ella, Rommy and Sadie.

    Ah, Jerry. A hugely honest poet with such great charisma and character about his work. I so prefer a poet of his caliber to those that write bullshit hallmark pretty portrait poems. You'll get none of that here. Honest, well thought out poetry is what you'll get. He delves into many subjects and can back up each one of them. Please, write more! ! Much love, Ashley xoxoxoxo

Best Poem of jerry hughes

A Message To My Father

My beloved father, the last time we met
in company with your confidant and friend Abu,
we spoke of many things.
Most importantly the history I'd lost in the
half century of not being your son.

You surrendered me for expediency
because you were a man of peace.
The circumstances of then made me who I am,
and not necessarily the son you wanted;
But that's another story.

Nil Desperandum

It was cold and wet
and there he was,
sitting on a park bench,
sorting his worldly posessions
into a plastic bag.

A book of poetry,
a comb,
darned socks,
