Quote LeftI wish to thank you for featuring my poem, but also I'd like to thank you for giving everyone the opportunity of posting their work. It means a lot to many and most. Poetry can be a wonderful way to alleviate tensions and stress...it helps the ones who write...but it might also give support to the reader. Then there is the poetry that just lifts the mind...and takes it elsewhere. :) Thanks again.. Quote Right
