Moazzam, thank you for coming by and for commenting on "The Magic Of Autumn" and "Where Courage Is The Promise". The words dark and but are necessary for the meter of the poem (it goes off meter if the words are taken out); however, your comments did inspire me to change the wording to a better effect (I think). Your critique helped improve the poem, and I thank you.
Thanks for the comments on Exposed Mediocraty....I know it isnt the most lovely of prose, it was more of a vent to ramble my worldly frustrations. I appreciate you taking the time to share and elaborate you thoughts. <3 Nica
