Jim this is a splendid poem written with honesty, clarity and humility. Love the title and your determination to run your own race. Your poems have a refreshing truthfulness about them an unpretentiousness that others on the site could well emulate. My favourite line is 'All poetry is beautiful. Some takes longer to understand.' Spot on! love Allie xxxx

My poetry may be different, I don't follow the path of other poets, but that's ok, let them write what they must write in their own way. Absolutely first class poetry and such a much needed message, we should stop telling others how they should write and write how we feel Top marks a ten spot here Jim for class poetry Love duncan X

I like this poem Jim! I like how you take an anti-conformist stance as a poet. I think that poets who have a very different style of writing are more appealing and most of all memorable. Thanks for sharing your art with us! -Michael

Jim, you said that excellently how I fell. We all write what we must and when we can. It would be rather boring if we didn't and all wrote the same. Great poem. Top marks from me. Thanks for sharing it my friend. David
