|This has really affected me. It's powerful
and sad. I'm left feeling helpless,by the content,
the flow, the particular rhythm...

|Oh Tinka, this can be overcome with the right assistance. I was dyslexia as a child, also left handed and that did not help. Time, patience and understanding goes a very long way.......

|You have done an excellent job in releasing the feelings of frustration. I am not reallt familiar with dyslexia however I do know those who live with it are very strong in what they have to deal with daily. I'm learning so much from your work!

|Incidences of people's minds working in different ways to those ways in which we are mainstream trained are increasing. These are special people who are gifted and talented beyond belief in ways that are not valued, often, and instead are readily castigated for "not fitting in". To spell things backwards shows fluency of thought and concept. I am waiting for standard education to get a grip and realise these things, honouring individuals and enabling them to be assessed and received in ways that are appropriate for them. But this is a poem that goes a lot deeper, Tinks. I think you are very cleverly using a double-metaphor here. The pain is acute and real. I think there is almost no pain deeper than the effects of humiliation... except perhaps that of the person who sees... and whose heart, like yours, is on fire with hurt and indignation of their behalf. Bless you, Kate xx|

|Sometimes facing ourselves is the hardest thing we ever have to do.
Knowing we have no control over our own life can be devastating. Especially with no end in sight.

|When is despair, think about someone and light a candle, as long as it burns that friend will be there with you to share the darkness, the solitude and the sadness, but that little flickering flame will also tell you that you are not alone, that you never was.

|Dyslexia its when they see things and write things backwards I have a friend with dyslexia and he is attending a special school
could your friend have more than dyslexia?
it sounds very devastating especially having suicidal thoughts
Beautifully written and expressed emotions!
Love Peace and hugssss....Morning Star

|Things are reversed and inside out from what they should be, or are they? a feeling you brought my senses to. Beautiful emotional tones, but sad. Bless you Tinks! Jasmin Horst|

|A deep and emotional acrostic Sissy. Well done!
|Reviewed by Rebecca Lerwill
|Though sadness shines, I do see some hope in there. Touched me, Tinka!
|Reviewed by Kathy Armijo
|"FRIEND" - nothing in this acrostic portrays friend. Perhaps, that is the center of the problem. Wanting this person to be a friend, but who does not have the capacity to be one. As we've all heard 'cut your losses.' Difficult to do, but NOT impossible. Take care.
God bless you. Kathy

|Dark intensity in a series of acroustics that combine to capture the despondency that spreads from frient to friend or lover to lover.

|This is sooo very sad Tinka my friend. Believe or not the artist, and a very good one, is dyslexic here in this huge corporation I work for. She's beautiful and we all think she hung the moon. She works harder to overcome and we all stand beside her everyday. Dyslexia doesn't have to be a curse.

|Some times, those closer to the problem are the ones less able to help. It's always hard to do. Thank you for this offering.
