    Catie and I were talking of categories of verses and forms, I love a good rant and I'd say this falls into stream of conciousness another sub category of free verse, my thoughts on this type of verse when i do them or anyone else, do they stand alone? Does this work without the footnote? Congrad's on your win a BIG fan. Light & Love

    Cyndi, may people like you give the mentally ill hope that change will come, that tragedy like Ashley's will no longer happen. This poem took my breath away.

    Oh, Cyndi! Your poem just tore my heart out! You have taken a very gruesome event which showcases man's heartlessness, and you've turned it into a beautiful tribute to Ashley. Congratulations on your well deserved first place win in my free verse contest. hugs, catie :)

    Another tough topic you have chosen to write about, Cyndi. I remember the resulting inquiry. I didn't realize that Ashley Smith was moved 17 times between 8 facilities in 9 months. A very well-written poem -- strong effect with continuing sentences from one stanza to the next(wot is that device of formatting officially called?).

    Amazingly poignant write--I hope you send this to the newspaper --It's hard to believe this still happens--I thought this was for old movies--you've put this in a very powerful form--I pray she is at peace!

    I love-love this poem, Cyndi! Thanks for the footnote; Im going to google her story. You must consider adding her name to the title. If this poem is for Catie's contest...I have no chances! : ) Have agreat day. Ruben.
