    A wonderful poem. Would you read my poem 'Faded Photographs' which tries to express the same sentiments about parents (but not as well yours I might add) (Report) Reply

    Yes, we are each ourselves, no matter what others may think. Good poem. Read mine - Who Am I -

    An enjoyable poem on a very unusual and special theme. I particularly like the rhythmic style and the way it ended. (Report) Reply

    Having two sons myself, this poem has meaning for me, I loved reading it. Reminds me of looking back at pictures of the past also and remarking how sons look like their fathers and their fathers before. Great write, keep on writing, you have my attention! RoseAnn (Report) Reply
