    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.

    That is just so full of hope and inspiration, this write. If only we could really write a letter to our younger selves, it would change lives of many. Lovely poem David.

    I wonder why the beatings??..Is this from personal experience or just from seeing it go on in your family and or community?..Great expressive and emotive work..Sara

    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....
