Ya know, I like the overall meaning behind this poem. You speak a lot of truth with your words. This world is so full of superficiality and some place so much worth on monetary value that the purest most valuable things become second best. It is a shame. A person is only as good as his word, and his morals and values. How you treat someone means so much more than how much money you have, or how physically attractive you are. I learned this as I grew up and what a valuable lesson it is! I base a persons value to me on how they treat me and what they stand for. How trustworthy they are and their values mean more to me than any amount of money. I do have a suggestion for this poem. I think it could benefit from a different form. It reads more like long sentences rather than a poem in my opinion. I would suggest breaking up these lines a bit. But other than that, this is very nicely written with a good strong message. Take care.
Wow, Eddie.. how can one say so much in such few words? This is wonderful.. and a refeshing look on how a "man" sees things about love. I like the purety of it. It speaks to me in a real way. I can tell it was written from the heart. Just the first line itself is powerful..and continues in that fashion throughout.
