Thanks LoveBug, I think that poems from the heart are the most powerful poetry of all (just my thoughts).
Parasite, fisrtly - cliches are in the eye of the beholder. We have had discussions on what is cliche and what is not here before. This is from the heart, so it is written to show how I feel not my talent as a poet.
I used 'not worth a dime' cause that is how I feel, not 'just because it fits'.
This is NOT an attack on you, it is explaining why your helpful comments won't be used for a rewrite. Thank you anyway.
Stand straight and tall, not the reflection as others see you, but as you truely are. Clearwater
