|This is great, Linda. It opens your poetic heart to show your compassion for all the downtrodden, as well as your personal needs to write. I love the verse about writing for your Saviour, too!.."We are His workmanship (poetry), created ...to do good works." Poetry is the meaning of workmanship in the Scripture, or so I have been told. I love it!

|Oh my, I so relate. I used to think poetry was for women and poofs, however, I found a great outlet, a cathartic outlet when my ex broke the pointless law and refused my contact with my son.
Not all Dad's run away, I went to court over 40 times to fight too see my child. Most dads are of similar ilk, but now i see why they give up. Women can ignore the law with impunity.
On here I found tip top support, until she had my writing banned at a contact hearing, which was really poetry on trial. One more poem and I'd go to Gaol!

GREAT POEM, GREAT LADY !!
(I know what you mean about writing best when down. Oddly enough, that is when I'm best at light. Funny side to anything, right? Helps so much to turn the tragedy mask over.)
Thank you for sharing this.
For being you!

|All wonderful reasons to write Linda and your work is valued and appreciated by your peers here on the den. For me it is to express I believe things I can't always find the words to say verbally. I want my writing to reach out and touch emotions and feelings.

GOD BLESS YOU

|Beautiful write, Linda; I accept your challenge, but I will do it in story format instead of in poetry format. Stay tuned!
(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Texas, Karen Lynn. :D

|Great job Linda, "...My feelings jotted on paper..." "...Pain woven into words....Others peeking inside my heart.." great wordplay. I might add that your reasons for writing are much more noble than mine. No matter the reason, however, we are so lucky that you are motivated to write and to share your efforts with the world.
It will be interesting to see who, if anyone, accepts your challenge.

|The plight of abused children and the homeless are extremely worthy topics, especially today. I find myself writing more and more about the plight of homeless animals - there are far too many of them out there right now, as well.
