As always your work is simply beautiful. you speak with such poetic sincereity and honesty in this piece. and you view the world seeing the whole picture, not just bits and pieces like some of the rest of us do. i admire your gift of writing but also i admire the way that you so willingly share your deepest feelings/emotions here with us at Passions. This was good girl! Keep it up!
Take care. AMY

To explain this poem, (someone just e-mailed this question) it was inspired by true stories that I heard first hand from people who migrated out of the Sertao (desert)in northeast Brazil to escape the annual drought. In some regions, every man carried a gun and there was a lot of violence, and famous bandits became national heroes. This was many years ago Liz
