most excellent poem.

"It's as though life isn't living
No heart does it possess"

I love this part.....

I have unspoken those very words, but I'm trying to change.  Your poem touched me.

Hoot,
Thanks, you're sweet

Sonny, Thoughtful comments from a young poet
Much appreciated by an old one
Liz

Sir real
So glad you liked the poem

Quest,
I often think, if I had spoken up, a less travelled path I could have taken. But I've now learned to speak my heart, and that has made all the difference.

So many times those that love us do it in ways that others do not.  What I mean is that they think they say they love you and they do....but not the same way you or I might.  Doesn't mean that they don't just cause they don't say it.  Seems easy to me to say "I love you"....but to others it is the hardest thing in the world to do.

This is by far my favorite poem of yours.  You have a talent your father did not. You are able to comunicate with words to the masses.  And you do it with flair.  

And I know he has love for you....and must be proud in his own special way.  

 Share what you are for you are what you share

Liz, this is so very good, I do see this side of the dilema, it is still so difficult to change.  With your permission I'd love to print this out and keep it for a reminder to how it feels to be on the "needing to hear it" side.  Thanks again for sharing with me,

This poem is so beautiful,
It's words ring so true,
If it is fact and not fiction,
I hope that happiness, love and contentment soon come to you.

First Knight, straet and Moonsine,
I appreciate all of your comments
It's amazing what my children tell me about themselves, having been always urged to be open, but then I learn as time goes on, those things they didn't, for fear of my feelings or reaction. I guess we all do that, but when someone is in distress, how much they need those words of love!

Silence can drive me insane!
This poem is beautiful and heartfelt.
I loved the contrast between worthless and gold in the last stanza.
YOu have a blessed heart.

 Words like violence
Break the silence

I didn't read this one before Lizzie, and I am not sure what went straight to my heart your poem or your comment that you know I know so well.   Yes, you sure are one darn good poetess dear lady.  

A weenie bump up because I am down here and might as well right?
