    So true, things change some for the good & some not. //Glad your back to your novel/prose writing! [I would never tell you to stuff it, never, I was told in a passive aggressive way to stuff it for 30 years! Also, society pretty much tells women to stuff it 24 x7 from birth to the grave.] still stumbling myself with POV & verb tenses. // Light & Love

    I agree with most of these comments-truly a very powerful poem. It was nice to go back in time for a bit. (: I like the ending too. There's a touch of nostalgic sadness there, but it's wrapped over the fact that you are older and now can share with others what you have learned, A very giving piece of work. I quite enjoyed reading. Thanks. Always, Laura

    So much truth, something's get better and something's get worse, it's the way life is kept in balance, and since we do know this we need to constantly affect and effect change hoping what we do or become is for the better. HOPE Light & Love

    I have no idea why you're on my block poet list. I don't see how you are on my favorite list and blocked at the same time. Have we ever had a spat before. Refresh my memory. I don't recall it. You never called me names, like a troll nor insulted my poetry. Have you? DX

    now, i wish i could somehow get my innocence back, cyn... yes, we still have a sliver of it and this seemingly intense piece highlights all our past glories and defeats... truly a work of art, a walk down the marks of one's personal history... a keeper this is! huggs .. SOUPY!..:)

    this is FANTASTICO. I kind of was thinking on those same lines when I did my own rendition of this theme, but I just decided to keep it all about the negative of violence instead of delving so deeply into the things that have actually improved. Sadly some will not call gay rights and other things as improvements, but I feel that there were indeed evil things swept under the rug in the "olden days'
