Well done! Great message and right to the point. Your words flowed off my tongue, and I do like to read aloud. We've had far too many traffic deaths around her lately; I wish everyone would read and heed your poem. Sharon
This is great! Very simple and straight to the point1 And I can relate becasue sometimes I wonder there has to be more! My fave part would have to be when you said She'd always been taught
never to run
to face her problems
to fight the gun
I love the way you put this into words a motto I grew up with personally but sometimes it's not all that easy and you do just wanna run! A fave for sure Great write!
YOu know, I didn't think you needed to go any further with this. Personally I thought the shortness with this made it . You got to the point without the help of too many words. Some people think the longer the better but sometimes that ends up to be the very thing to make many readers turn away. It's nice to make your readers come up with their own conclusions and versions. I say good job.
