    This is the cry of every heart. So touches the heart and mind with sheer pain to imagine the living of a war torn city. (Report)Reply

    We look to the stars to dream, when we should look down in the world that screams. This is a work that should be read by school children to see the world their parents hide. (Report)Reply

    As I sit reading this, it is Christmas day, the world outside the four walls is a tundra in which the sound of the wind is like a choir of wraiths screaming from the basement of purgatory. And yet this work touches on the fundamental realities of which I am sheltered by, that a roof is a luxury, for those who have spent life living in craters in which all they have is their humanity. you turn tragedy into an understanding.

    Matthew, you are certainly entitled to your opinion. But a little empathy would be appropriate. I know people who have experienced such tragedy as children. And the only thing that keeps them alive is their passion for writing poetry and/or their music.
    Yoonoos, this is passionate poetry at its finest. Thank you for giving us a glimpse into this child's nightmarish world. I can't even imagine that child's world.

    This is garbadge! It is not poetry buy merely self indulgence.Poetry is not a vehicle for self it is an act and a stage a troop of playerars that take you to a world of invention and wonderful possibility that opens up the truth about who we realy are! We dont need lectures and perceptive sound bites, we need empty vistas, gloriously unsung valleys and people we dont even know about it yet. (Report)Reply
