Peace, love and blessings to you,

|Reviewed by Portia Burton
|Oh, this is really a great poem! It made me think positively about myself. Yes, that should be my motto:'I am happy with what I am.'
Thank you, dear Poet!

|I don't know you, have never been to your site till this evening, but... I know this; you are a man who stands for his beliefs/ideas, is comfortable in his own skin, who cares for other people but does not care whether he impresses them! You are your own man! I respect that in a man.

|Who doesn't feel this way? Sometimes it seems as if people
deliberately misunderstand, but the fact is, while we may be able to fit into someone else's shoes, they don't really fit, and can't be made to. Each foot is different. Everything is!! Seems to be human nature to put people in boxes, label them neatly, and stick 'em on a shelf. We really are individuals. We really do not fit any preconceived notion of what a person our age and with our background [which who-can-know], gender,
creed, race, education, 'cet-'cet-'cet, 'ought to' be. But to really look and listen requires time and thought. So guess what happens?
Out comes the box and in we go. Sad and frustrating, but. . .almost said 'is what it is.' SO overdone. Anywaaaaay, thank you for this
highly thought-provoking piece. Sounds like you have your ducks in a row! Know what deserves to be given priority, and go for it. Good for you!! Peace, Phyllis

|TOTALLY LOVE THIS, WALT! Has me beaming from ear to ear and the pic is just right... I know how this guy feels! Yep, you're right... we may not know "you" at all... but we know that your words here have 100% succeeded and do all that they set out to: clever you! Sadly, I don't think I'll make Atlanta this time round, but I'm sure gettin a taste for this globetrottin lark... so maybe in the not too distant future? See you soon! :)) xx|

|we circulate the stage adorned in our personal ruse -- to lead the thoughts we wish others to perceive -- it is the nature of who we are, mankind -- Walt, I very much enjoyed reading your poem -- it is one that the reader can mull around and dig deeply into, test it against his/her persona, ideals -- much peace, joy and love -- JMW|

|This is one that I can sooooo related to. I feel some people in the den only see what they want to see and assume badly of me; they think they know me but yet they really don't know me. Whenever given the chance they would post poems to purposely upset me to make me lose my cool and look bad to others; thus losing some of my friends in the process. How coniving and wicked these so-called Christians can be??!!
This kind of people are nothing but trouble-makers, they would pick a topic and then think it was what I had gone through in life, judged me and placed sins on me that only they themselves have imagined. Their assumption of me was totally wrong and yet they would repost poems that would upset me - again and again; and they call themselves Christians. *Give me a break!*
Real Christian and believers of God do not purposely post something to hurt another's feelings; God only want them to HEAL others!!!
I had enough of the fake Christians trouble-makers here on the site!
A wonderful poem that speaks my mind so well!!! This one takes the words out of my mouth!!!
