    You made all the pieces of the puzzle fit together nicely in this descriptive acrostic.

    Nice write on a problem far too familiar to so many. It also takes a lot of inner strength to make it through it. Great Job K!

    Are you ok? I miss you.

    Wow! This is eye-opening! Never have I seen an acrostic that held so much meaning and truth. I love how you've used the name to question what's associated with taking on a name that doesn't live up to the name (hope that makes sense). Great write!

    lol love it K! I was going to do an acrostic with my name once; but it has 10 letters and I really didn't have that much to say about my self at the time! lol

    Nice acrostic Karen. a name is just a label given to us by our parents, we are so much more than this, as we look deeper...Thanks for the read...peter

    Names are very important ..for instance the name Karen means Pure in Greek and Love in wishes

    I hear you, but don't be so tough on yourself. Their are no perfect families. We just do our best with what we have. Thank you for your kind comments and have a great 2014!

    Karen, oft we cling so hard at our trunks that our branches wither from trying, believe me I tried, in the end, we find that our first name alone suffices, anything more is just a mere extension, you alone will always suffice as long as you love the woman who have become, be kind and gentle to her, as you age you'll find the mirror will treat you much gentler, sending u love, hugs and all that you might need, with a sip of amicable cheer, go on girl, keep writing, love xxx

    So are you trying to say, theres more to you than meets the eye? Id say thats true for most women, a mystery for men to unravel, but most men have fun unravelling gifts, which is what women are, gifts from god, blessings Carl

    I enjoyed reading this one again. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas.

    A great punchy poem. I loved it from the start, but it has taken me to read a few comments below to understand the meaning. I think I've got it now, well done. Thanks also for your Well Wishes on my “Southern Christmas” blog. Having posted it so late I was not expecting any responses, so am overwhelmed. It has further buoyed my Festive Season. May this Season treat you well too, Scott

    Wow very effective and so much more meaning below the surface. Too bad he didn't honor the beautiful name he was born with.

    Just checked in and read this piece of art. You always out do yourself and under estimate. I love it and you. Take care. ~Kilmer
