Long for your laughter! If only the world

Couldn't not comment on this one, but I'm not sure what to say because you pretty much said it. Though I will say that the idea of cheating in heaven is highly scandalous. I'm shocked! ! Good job at expressing this one.

So powerful even though i don't know the kid. You enable the reader to visuallize SOO much of your passion that the poem affects the reader dispite the physical gap. One of your most intimate and FULL poems, you've really expressed the beautiful characteristic of Christlike love. I can see it in your life. -landrey
