Hello Kelly, Im sure its you that said to me that i should never be discouraged by others when it comes to writing but when i spoke to my friend she said that you gave her a negative comment and quiet upset her. At the age of 14 nobody would like to here that even if you disagree with what they say but it is there own work and something that helps them escape, therefore i would just like to say that you need to think about your actions before you say things because i dont know wiether they got the wrong end of the stick but she was hurt by it and caused her to take some of her work off this site. Do you think thats fair? I hope this did not offend you that was not the point i just wanted to point something out to you. Yours Sincerley James Watts

The Best Poem Of Kelly Vinal

The Man Without A Name

Deep within the chasm,
Lives the man without a name -
He’s come to represent
The secrets hidden in -
And so we, do we castigate
Those things not understood,
In culture and in worship,
In ideals and shades of skin

This society

Is it not hypocrisy
To cast as demons, if but only for
Subjective sin and character
Unlike our own -
If only I could exorcise
My coded prejudice, my DNA,
And pave a plane of equity
For our homogenous affinity -
And I would be the first
To grasp your outstretched hand, my friend,
To seal the man without a name -
To heal the man within.
