    clarence darrow said: the sins of the father fall on the shoulders of their children....the only problem i have with this poem is are you certain you are worthy of giving such good advice.thank goodness my sins didn't collide with my genius son you know i mean this as constructive criticism because we are brothers in solidarity....the only advice i give people is BE COOL AND BE NO ONE'S PHOOL! YOU'RE COOL BROTHER ......PHREEPOETREE ~free cee!~

    The title brought me in,,,, when I sometimes leave notes,,, I say "hey you" Have a great new year's ;}

    I saw this title and immediately thought of Pink Floyd! Now, about the piece. I can honestly say that this is one of the most inspiring pieces I have read in quite awhile. It's no secret that many of us on Soup are fans of emotional writing, and this is fantastic work! Thanks for sharing this. Also, I am soup mailing you on something I hope you can clear up for me if you don't mind.

    wish someone would have written this to me--maybe i would have had the courage to move on sooner.... heartfelt and wise i like the lines: Follow your desire to write but make sure you study English It will help you through life. very wise....
