My writing teacher gave me a list of 16 words, to put to writing. I tried to be as coherent as possible. This was a very difficult challenge for me.
I welcome your honest feedback.

I am my Fathers son, to me that means to apply myself to perfection
He died across the largest ocean, to keep me from strife, and to grow in freedom
In my mind I always am alert for his message
Portray yourself in the American way, with devotion
He speaks to me with a deceased language
Never to slander another American
in dishonor with malice
My life was once a riddle, drinking and fighting is the best way to describe it
Now I advertise peace with honor
I no longer live with remorse, I have placed it into a cage
I have become the singer of love in my fathers, honor and advocation...++++++++++++++++++++

Agreeing with Sandra - the 16 words are not obvious and you have done a great job with an unfair task!!
Reviewed by Sandra Corona 5/20/2003
The 16 words were not obvious so you've done a great job of immersing them in your poetry. The poem is beautiful. When I write of my father, since I was five when he died, I write with the voice and feelings of a child. You were older when your father passed but yet, as we all do, you still mourn for him.
Would you mind if I tried it? I'd just share with you.

Line 5: deceased?

I don't know what the sixteen words were so I cannot help you there. I did, however, enjoy the topic of the poem, but it didn't remind me of a poem. More a soft, children's melody like Little Bo-Beep. Which is not an insult (to me)!! I did like it. You really did work your theme and I know how hard it is to 'organise' a poem with specific words or a form to follow. It's complicated! Good job on that because I am crap at it!

Warm Love
