    *STANDING OVATION!*

    You broke it down! You told of the blind past, the sighted present and the envisioned future!


    Absolutely fabulous!

    Those are words to live by!

    I enjoyed reading this and I OVERSTOOD, it took me back to dayz in the projects, out the window sales, and sitting on pieces of steel, whose only gifts were 10-20 life. I look back on those dayz of yesterday, and know that i wasn't living at all. Just days rushing on top of days to make up a tomorrow, that became a today, where I finally live. Peace and Blessings, I Feel you.

    Loving the rhyme scheme in this, btw. We're existing, but are we really living? Much food for thought So'ja, keep poetically keeping our minds alert, well done.

    Warrior of Artistic Fire, what a way you have with words. If words could capture the wild elusive wings of song, would many not be perched in your silver cage chirping a hymn of appreciation? Please understand that religious discipline and self-restraint can hardly shackle the surging emotions that erupt from the deepest reservoirs of the soul when one's heart whispers and sends such divine phrases with such soft syncopated rhythms as you have written.

    Simply Sublime!
