When A Woman Loves A Man (Book) - 5/25/2011 6:04:18 AM|
When a woman loves a man....she gives her all, body , mind and soul!. Your poems are very heart felt and true. There is nothing like love. when in love and when you are loved in return you feel like you can accomplish everything. It is such a beautiful thing that no matter how many times we get hurt, we are drawn back to it (LOVE).
When A Woman Loves A Man (Book) - 4/30/2010 2:07:12 PM
In multidimensional muses, poems and vignettes in her book "When a Woman Loves a Man," AuthorsDen writer Bernice Angoh reveals the exciting secrets of being a Proverbs 31 (10-31) wife—“whose worth is far above jewels”—a wife who is enthralled and fulfilled with the certainty she is loved equally in return. And she shows you how you can have the same thing for yourself.
I've been married to the same woman for 58 years. Based on my personal relationship experience and having read this marvelous book from cover to cover, I tell you all that if you read this book with an open heart, your life and your marriage will never again be the same. What an incredible gift to you and your loved one!
With love, respect and admiration to Bernice Angoh,
Author of the AD posted poems
"Mother Teresa" and "I Sit Alone and Cry," et seq.

Anytime a book is done, it is a great achievement and the author should be congratulated especially by true friends. The phony ones will get jealous and maybe not say a thing, start treating you funny and acting all stupid. Even some family members, not to leave out AD, will do the same. Maybe this is just in my world, then again it is reality in human relations. Both of my oldest brothers and some of my friends got all stupid when I did my first book, then when I did the second, one of my brothers really showed his ass. Any way enjoy your success Bernice and don't let any of the fools blow it. cheers

Bernice Angoh has the ability to reach through words and give a boost to others. Everything she writes is full of love--the reader cannot help but feel it, and keeps coming back for more. Some of her works are short--some are long--some rhyme--some stop abruptly. She says what needs to be said in the poem, and then stops. Each poem is like its own egg kingdom...crack it open, find the gold, and be nourished... I thoroughly enjoy reading her wonders. --Charlie
Lemonade Street (Book) - 9/30/2007 6:17:19 PM
totally awesome poem Bernice...I wish I could paint with words as good as you. The one poem that I wrote that filled my heart and my eyes with tears is Star So Bright. But my work cannot hold a candle to yours. You are truly GIFTED.

It is difficult to lose someone we love and admire but he will be in your heart forever as that is also part of loving someone.
My Africa (Article) - 7/13/2009 7:02:57 PM
What a wonderful and informative piece filled with righteous pride.
Bernice, I read all the reviews posted below mine here, and I agree with them all. This article has made an impact on each one of us and, in turn, we each will impact others with our new viewpoints and understandings brought about by "My Africa."
Kudos to Bernice!
Thank you for sharing!

Breast Ironing (Article) - 1/27/2009 5:27:45 AM
wow, that's horrifying. I had never heard of such a thing. Women are treated horribly in many cultures. Thanks for sharing.
My Africa (Article) - 11/6/2008 1:55:57 PM
Haha! I am so in awe after reading this. Didnt you know there is a Seattle in Kekem? on our way to Bamenda, we passed by it one time...and we had to go through Chicago in Nkongsamba because the bridge had collapsed....Just kidding...
I am so happy to read this article. I have met some folks who even pretend they speak nothing but English. I think it comes from a place where there is little self esteem and a need to feel intergrated in a new society, but it can be done more honest ways. I show nothing but pity and hope they Learn. This is amazing Bernice. You make me more proud to be a Cameroonian. and Yes there is also a Paris in Cameroon, they just dont have a tower.
My Africa (Article) - 5/28/2008 8:49:48 AM
Truly a most informative and honest account, Bernice. Your article ought to be read by all who do not know Africa. Thank you. Love and best wishes to you,
My Africa (Article) - 5/24/2008 2:15:33 PM
A really wonderful article that I enjoyed very much. Just HAD to Google "Cameroon" and found a wonderful site of 100 photos of the Country...BEAUTIFUL!
Blessings and Love ~~ Micke
My Africa (Article) - 5/12/2008 2:22:51 PM
Great article Bernice and I relate with the negativity about Africa. I'm proud of my heritage and proud to be an American. I hate seeing those little babies with flies on them, I always change the channel.
Breast Ironing (Article) - 5/6/2008 11:33:27 AM
I am saddened by this story, men tend to rule the world and women often try to find ways to protect young girl from them. In a male dominated world, women must get more education so that we can dismiss some of these horrible customs that hurt more than help. Thanks for educating me on this custom.
My Africa (Article) - 5/1/2008 6:46:10 AM
What an amazing talent you have with words. A most excellent piece.
My Africa (Article) - 4/14/2008 7:20:39 AM
I will have to print a copy if you don't mind and let my African and American friends read this. You are correct... people believe the stuff we see on TV and media propoganda. Just like some foreigners think that everyone lives like movies stars and there's no poverty in America.

Oh Goodness! I am shocked by some of the things people have said to you! Talk about ignorance gee...some people are so shallow in things they think. I'd like to say: "Hey Did You Just Get Hit With A Stupid Stick Dude?" Unbelievable!
I Am Glad Your Proud!! You Are Beautiful Inside & Outside & Your Mind Is Also Very Beautiful Too!! I want Your Hair!! lol :)
Thank You For Be You!!
My Africa (Article) - 3/27/2008 9:19:10 AM
...how you have painted a picture of your home...in colors of reality to be worn with pride...is one held in highest respect...and you have brushed many...with a soul of kindness...traveled on wings of wisdom...and given the polish of a different Oscar...on a carpet of inherited gold.
beautiful write Bernice...
My Africa (Article) - 3/26/2008 8:27:30 PM
The article exudes lovliness. I'm not surprised, but I am pleased...and intrigued. --Charlie
Breast Ironing (Article) - 3/13/2008 5:43:18 AM
Have never heard of breast ironing - more injustices done to our daughters. "To keep boys off our daughters" particularly heartbreaking - what's being done to keep THEM off? Sad -
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Perfect... ok, Ok, I admit it, I think I'm becoming a fan.
thank you for sharing this, it really is lovely.
You Make the Roses Beautiful (Poetry) - 8/14/2013 12:38:11 PM
This is brilliant, I really loved it, ( and at some point I may steal your phrase, "You make the roses beautiful" to say to my wife with your permission,).
thank you for sharing this, it is such a lovely thing to read.

jerry is right Bernice no one could say it better than he has here, superb
I Am Pregnant (Poetry) - 2/12/2013 4:41:15 PM
FAN-tas-tic! You have the knack, and you can't learn knack, you must be born with it, but you dear poet have the knack to grab your readers with the impact of an assault weapon's charge. FREE!!! Yes, I hear the sanity in that expression . . .
1 (Poetry) - 2/12/2013 12:58:14 PM
As you so rightly say, Bernice, together the individual fabrics of our lives will make that wonderful quilt of comfort and covering as long as we allow ourselves to be stitched together and not ripped apart. A lovely exhortation and desiderata for this Valentine-hungry world. xx
1 (Poetry) - 2/12/2013 8:14:14 AM
Beautifully expressed and so wonderful to read. You showed great wisdom with these sparse but powerful words.

If only we could ALL live up to this wonderful poem of love and peace. We've a long way to go before that can happen I'm afraid. In your lifetime maybe, not in mine. Beautiful sentiments.
I Love Me Too (Poetry) - 2/9/2013 4:27:59 PM
If these poems are building to a colossal climax on Feb. 14, we must be in for an earthquake! Shake the world, Bernice.
I Love Me Too (Poetry) - 2/9/2013 1:44:22 PM
I appreciate the line "I have been broken, healed, and then broken again" for it does happen many times in one's life. Turning to the Divine Healer gives strength for the journey and hope when we are trampled on.
Knowing God loves ME gives dignity, honor and hope, enabling us to give Him the broken pieces and go on with Him.
I Love Me Too (Poetry) - 2/8/2013 4:06:35 PM
My sweet friend
Always love yourself no matter what! You deserve happiness and love to surround you. Keep the faith and embrace your higher power.
Much peace love and light
I Love Me Too (Poetry) - 2/8/2013 10:01:51 AM
you have found the truth in yourself and you cannot be broken again
I Love Me Too (Poetry) - 2/8/2013 8:37:10 AM
Before we can be loved by anyone else, we have to love ourselves first. I see many poets with broken hearts who didn't learn that lesson.
I Love Me Too (Poetry) - 2/8/2013 7:30:17 AM
Wow, heartfelt with a big heart.
I Love Me Too (Poetry) - 2/8/2013 7:06:37 AM

I love this, it touched my heart, for I have also been used in my life. I belong to God now, He lives in my heart. Thank you for writing such an honest and heartfelt poem.
Blessings to you,
I Love Me Too (Poetry) - 2/8/2013 5:51:32 AM
Good advice from the Higher Power, Bernice, and also good that you yielded to that sound advice. It took me many lost decades before I knew the supreme feeling of loving myself. The day I felt that revolution, I was suddenly able to forgive myself for the wrongs I had done over the years to people who I hurt along the way. On that second day of October day, 2010, I became a free and happy man. Life has not been the same and that, my friend, is good. Love the photo.

To know love we must first find it in ourselves.
As I Lay Me Down (Poetry) - 2/8/2013 5:19:50 AM
Life does have its moments of joy and laughter sprinkled with sadness that death brings.
As I Lay Me Down (Poetry) - 2/8/2013 4:12:15 AM
Your Valentine series is a joy, Bernice,
and written by a woman in love, no two ways
about it; this in particular is very fine
and well thought through
As I Lay Me Down (Poetry) - 2/7/2013 10:05:10 AM
as i hope so to for you both
As I Lay Me Down (Poetry) - 2/7/2013 9:46:04 AM
What a construction! (the poem and the picture). Be careful, Bernice, or you may give poetry a good name.
As I Lay Me Down (Poetry) - 2/7/2013 9:31:51 AM
What a wonderful way to wrangle with words...and you won.
As I Lay Me Down (Poetry) - 2/7/2013 9:17:31 AM
Unique phrasing is something I have come to expect from you, and you always deliver. THIS one is special, and I have a feeling that this love of yours will no doubt stand the test of time. I loved this one as I do everything you write. You give poetry a special feeling.
Fall.ing (Poetry) - 2/7/2013 6:17:34 AM

You bring your friend's pain right smack in the middle of your reader's heart. Amazing poetry my sweet friend. It is so good to have you back here in the den. Missed you much!
Much peace, love and light,
BROKEN (Poetry) - 2/5/2013 1:15:08 PM
So poignant and sad. A Valentine with a crushing ending. Kudos to the writer.
BROKEN (Poetry) - 2/5/2013 10:35:22 AM
there is no greater pain than that of a cheated and broken heart
BROKEN (Poetry) - 2/5/2013 8:15:58 AM
Hahaha dear Jerry, I wrote this poem for a friend of mine who shared her pain with me, it's my way of standing in her shoes and saying the words she couldn't express because I 'felt' her hurt.
BROKEN (Poetry) - 2/5/2013 6:30:51 AM
Let us suppose you are merely exercising your talent as a poet when you wrote these lines of despair and hopelessness. Such agony is within these lines, and such a contrast to those you wrote even yesterday. I prefer to believe you were just giving into to your poetical license and tomorrow you will be back with us as you were before.
Love Without Restraints (Poetry) - 2/4/2013 12:57:29 PM
Powerful love poem.
Love Without Restraints (Poetry) - 2/4/2013 12:13:32 PM
A friend once said that life without passion is a poorly planned journey and you share your passion with love and grace, which will make your journey long and full of purpose.
Love Without Restraints (Poetry) - 2/4/2013 12:04:10 PM
You are composing some, if not "the", best love poems I've ever had the opportunity to read, and I thank you for that. Have you quit rolling around on the floor off yet? Heh.Heh

The Happiness Recipe (Poetry) - 2/3/2013 12:23:22 PM
Wise and wonderful thoughts. Why, oh why would we ever want to go any other way? I guess it is the nature of man to do wrong and then try to figure out a way out of it.
The Happiness Recipe (Poetry) - 2/3/2013 11:52:19 AM
an expertly written declaration of faith
The Happiness Recipe (Poetry) - 2/3/2013 8:47:36 AM
Fantastic writing, Bernice! I'm so happy you are writing again. This is chockfull of wisdom. You have given a trustworthy recipe for living.

This, my dear poet, need to be chiseled in stone and sat next to The Ten Commandants.
I loved what you did with the word forgiving.

it's the final two lines that do it for me,
this eternal passion, this commitment,
wonderfully delivered, Bernice,
SEASONS OF LOVE (Poetry) - 1/25/2013 5:13:23 AM
tender and intimate, Bernice,
and yet universal in its theme
SEASONS OF LOVE (Poetry) - 12/13/2012 1:49:12 PM
Quite a spiritual leaning poetry, and one that I felt a kinship with. I quite love the ending, but of course I needed to look up the two last words to be able to say that.
SEASONS OF LOVE (Poetry) - 12/13/2012 1:40:07 PM
I certainly do not claim to know anything anymore; it seems that the older I get, the less I know, the less I comprehend. This is a lovely gift well-shared, Bernice. Amour à toi,
SEASONS OF LOVE (Poetry) - 11/25/2012 2:47:03 PM
You often give a vocabulary lesson, which I appreciate. This one's a bit of a tongue twister for me, but I love it. Your words paint a very romantic picture.
The Love Maker (Poetry) - 11/25/2012 2:42:05 PM
It's a beautiful poem...full of reminders that we all have gifts to share, help to offer and to receive.
Merry Christmas (Poetry) - 11/23/2012 12:15:40 PM
I agree. We tend to focus on buying things we don't need for each other at Christmas instead of paying attention to what is really important. I don't know why we seem to rely on government to do everything when it is us, the people, who can do everything if we only put our minds to it. By the way, my mother's name is Nina.
Merry Christmas (Poetry) - 11/22/2012 2:34:56 PM

Freedom, this poem is about your freedom. From which gives you perfect peace, strength and, power.

I've learnt something new, oh to hear such words.
Indeed, this is dreamily cosy and wonderfully sensual!
I relate to your allegory with trees, we learn through nature, those who are awake and as aware as you are.

Wow! ... Hope this is not a true experience :-)
SEASONS OF LOVE (Poetry) - 11/12/2012 6:19:31 PM
Lovely Bernice. I love the "in the spirit world..." and ending with the Irish :-)
ENLIGHTENED (Poetry) - 11/12/2012 10:57:53 AM
Is this about some fallen general? You don't have to write to me. Just forgive me if I'm wrong.
ENLIGHTENED (Poetry) - 11/12/2012 9:37:31 AM
Hon, take it from someone who has suffered more heartbreak than they care to remember. It is not the end of the world. Life goes on and it gets better. If you have never seen the evil side of Mankind, you can’t fully appreciate the beauty of this creature created by the lord. Every disappointment is but a stumbling block. We come back better and fiercer. But until you can let it go, you hold urself in bondage that the creep does not deserve.
ENLIGHTENED (Poetry) - 11/12/2012 6:21:01 AM
at least the devil did not win
KNOWING (Poetry) - 11/10/2012 9:33:43 AM
True. It is more than enough but, to me, it ought to be a two-way experience (at least with romantic love). There are so many levels of love. Thank you, Bernice. Love and best wishes,
The Vow (Poetry) - 11/10/2012 9:32:10 AM
It is true that a kiss can symbolize so much. Thank you, Bernice. There is a "typo" in your first verse. I think you meant to write, "forever." Love and best wishes,
The Vow (Poetry) - 11/10/2012 4:18:31 AM
I really do feel another book emerging. This is beautiful.
KNOWING (Poetry) - 11/10/2012 4:16:47 AM
You got it! And I love it!
When Somebody Loves You (Poetry) - 11/10/2012 4:15:15 AM
Another heartfelt and beautiful written expression.
The Vow (Poetry) - 11/9/2012 5:47:10 PM
a rebirth in that kiss i can see and feel in how well you penned this
KNOWING (Poetry) - 11/9/2012 1:11:41 PM
Love is not always wise, but you sure are.
KNOWING (Poetry) - 11/8/2012 9:03:28 PM
Whats meant to be shall be. Great work.
KNOWING (Poetry) - 11/8/2012 8:32:21 PM
I used to think that love only won if two people shared the love, but in reality no one ever loses by taking the effort to give of themselves and love someone else.
If the other person doesn't reciprocate that love, they are the ones that lose...

a truly lovely work of art
When Somebody Loves You (Poetry) - 11/7/2012 11:23:11 AM
Having the love of someone to hold onto in your darkest hour is only made better by having their hand to hold as well...
I hope all is well.
When Somebody Loves You (Poetry) - 11/7/2012 9:43:34 AM
Wow! Now that is admiration.
When Somebody Loves You (Poetry) - 11/7/2012 5:52:52 AM

Once Upon a Love of a Lifetime (Poetry) - 11/4/2012 3:37:51 PM
Bernice, it's so you. I think I would recognize your poetry anywhere. Just love... "the universe blushes and caves in, gives up it's perfect roundness to form a heart". The graphic is a perfect match, too.
Once Upon a Love of a Lifetime (Poetry) - 11/2/2012 11:05:38 AM
It is so nice to be reading you again! I love your card!!
Love is not defined by the world's definitions...
Once Upon a Love of a Lifetime (Poetry) - 11/2/2012 6:26:35 AM
A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. To feel your love's heart beat is the best one could hope for as this wicked world turns.
Once Upon a Love of a Lifetime (Poetry) - 11/2/2012 6:25:15 AM

what a beautiful eloquent statement of this perfect emotion
Once Upon a Love of a Lifetime (Poetry) - 11/1/2012 5:23:20 PM
This is exactly what I feel and believe to be true, Bernice; thank you for expressing it so eloquently and meaningfully. Love and best wishes to you,

SOUL-GAZING (Poetry) - 1/25/2012 3:14:18 PM
So nice to read your words again...
Your words describe how I feel about my sweetheart. :) There is nothing quite so mesmerizing as gazing into the eyes, the windows of the soul of someone you love intimately and who loves you back the same way.
SOUL-GAZING (Poetry) - 1/23/2012 5:32:16 AM
Just to be with that one special love, that's all.
SOUL-GAZING (Poetry) - 1/23/2012 1:42:29 AM
Truly wonderful words of love, so expertly expressed with perfect intermingling...The eyes of the soul expressed in your photo...All simply lovely...
SOUL-GAZING (Poetry) - 1/22/2012 9:57:40 PM
Bernice, where have you been, probably soul gazing of course. What a way to come back to the den...Wonderfully written and soul ful...
Much peace, love and light,
SOUL-GAZING (Poetry) - 1/22/2012 9:31:45 PM
I can relate to this and I'd have no difficulty choosing. Nice photo as well to complement your verses. Thank you for sharing, Bernice. Love and best wishes to you,

The most beautiful song of all is unconditional love. It is steadfast, understanding, supportive and dependable. Ask me. I have spend my whole life sharing such a love with the one I've adored since we were both only fourteen. I am blessed beyond belief.
I've Loved You Long (Poetry) - 4/4/2010 9:05:43 AM

Beautiful. Well put. Love it. Liz
I've Loved You Long (Poetry) - 3/27/2010 5:16:41 PM
So gently put, Bernice, and yet with firmness and an enduring resonance.
I've Loved You Long (Poetry) - 3/27/2010 3:59:10 PM
Whether this is just verse or reality Bernice, you do not fail to express or reveal where your heart is, as far as I'm concerned a goodbye from you would actually be a hello, a loving person like you could travel to mars, or out of reach but the love you leave behind would stay right where it's at, cheers

A pretty song of love.
I've Loved You Long (Poetry) - 3/26/2010 2:34:38 PM
Bernice you capture the depth of feelings and emotions we can share for someone we truly yearn for. It may not be right or proper or just not the right time...but it does not make it wrong in the heart. Beautiful sentiments expressed in your words.
I've Loved You Long (Poetry) - 3/26/2010 1:54:24 PM
I can understand, relate, and empathize with the theme you have shared within your verses, Bernice. Thank you. Love and best wishes to you,

Yes...I understand: 'It was an agreement they made in spirit...'
This resonates so deeply within me.
A very moving and beautiful poem...

This is awesome...I can feel book number three emerging!
Under the Red Roof (Poetry) - 3/22/2010 7:24:28 PM
Softly romantic with a taste of erotic. Nicely written, good to see you back here, certainly have missed you...
Much peace, love, and light,
Under the Red Roof (Poetry) - 3/22/2010 3:58:00 PM
"...an agreement they made in spirit.." yes, that's it for it transcends all sensuality and is the key to eternity.
Good to see you posting, Bernice.
Under the Red Roof (Poetry) - 3/22/2010 3:55:09 PM
The beauty of true love when two really do become one...

A complete love story within your words Bernice.

Under the Red Roof (Poetry) - 3/22/2010 1:45:09 PM
Love the soft sensuality and romantic realism of this one Bernice, it says so much of love and how love develops not just lust but the feelings of two who know they were meant to be together. Good to see your name come back up on the posting list.

Be always safe,
Impossible Loves (Poetry) - 2/17/2010 3:17:17 PM
I like in particular, Bernice, how this poem moves from the abstract and general to the personal and tangible..."stand on your feet, head against your white comfy sweater.."
the warmth is real (before the clock!)
Impossible Loves (Poetry) - 2/17/2010 3:12:33 PM
So clever and cute.
Impossible Loves (Poetry) - 2/17/2010 1:50:30 PM
Very well done, Bernice. Nicely done with a little humor to close.
Mama's Here! (Poetry) - 1/22/2010 11:07:44 AM
A beautiful trip for Momma! Your character shines through each line.
God Bless you Bernice!
Mama's Here! (Poetry) - 1/2/2010 7:26:28 PM
I believe Motherhood is like no other experience in the world, and more than once I have been envious of their exhaulted stations in life.
Almost without exception, a Mother can't help but have total and unconditional love for her child. Most often that same total and unconditional love flows back to her, but not nearly often enough does the child openly share the knowledge of its love with its mother.
In writing from the heart and in publicly sharing your love for your mother, my dear Bernice, you have honored her in a very special and tender way.
Thank you for the many times you have visited my den site and posted your thoughtful, loving and supportive comments.
May God's warmth and love be with you in your Happy New Year!
Mama's Here! (Poetry) - 12/26/2009 11:47:17 AM
I AM JEALOUS...WITH A GODLY JEALOUSY. OBVIOUSLY YOUR MOTHER LOVES YOU VERY, VERY MUCH AND YOU AND OTHERS, HAVING REAPED THE PRECIOUS GIFT OF CARING FROM HER, LOVE HER BACK. THE FACT THAT YOU LOVE HER SO MUCH IN RETURN
IS NOT SURPRISING AND ONE WHO HAS NOT EXPERIENCED THIS KIND OF LOVE CAN ONLY WISH THAT THEY HAD...BUT THEN...GOD GIVES TO EACH WHAT THEY NEED. MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU AND YOURS! THANKS FOR SHARING AND GOD BLESS. JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS
Mama's Here! (Poetry) - 12/24/2009 6:40:55 PM
Merry X-Mas to you and your mom Bernice, I'm sure she's a sweet and loving as you are, cheers
Mama's Here! (Poetry) - 12/13/2009 3:20:04 PM
What a heart felt tribute to your mother while she is still alive. You are truly blessed twice over. Beautiful words for a beautiful mama from her beautiful daughter. Hugs. Liz
Mama's Here! (Poetry) - 12/13/2009 9:10:12 AM
I'm so glad your mom is here with you, Nina, and Rick. It was a long time coming, and hopefully it will never be that long again. Your words for your mom are precious and timeless, spanning your life and hers. It is evident that she is the one who groomed you, inspired you, and the one for whom you hold the deepest gratitude. You and she are blessed to be together now. Continue to enjoy, share, and cherish each moment...more wonderful memories for future days.
Mama's Here! (Poetry) - 12/11/2009 5:52:50 AM

Absolutely beautiful and such a precious testimony and honor to your Mama. How wonderful that she is visiting you after such a long time.
Mama's Here! (Poetry) - 12/10/2009 7:58:41 AM
Your Mama taught you well. It shows in these lines of gratitude from a student - her daughter - who's learned her lessons, well. Beautiful write. Give Mama a (((HUG))) from me. =] Excellent.
((((HUGS)))) and love, Karla.
Mama's Here! (Poetry) - 12/10/2009 7:13:25 AM
At least you still have your mama, Bernice! You're blessed! She's beautiful! Enjoy her while she's here!

Much peace, love, and light, and many holiday blessings,
I Am Like My Mother... (Poetry) - 12/6/2009 6:03:45 PM
Fantastic poem! Although I'm late reading it, lines like these will not get old. Your sister is a skillful writer, like you.
Will We Ever Learn? (Poetry) - 10/9/2009 1:47:19 PM
You have said much. Bernice, I really love the way you closed this very expressive piece of work, about people not acknowledging strangers on the street nor even saying hello.

Will We Ever Learn? (Poetry) - 9/27/2009 2:51:40 PM
Very deeply heartfelt write, Bernice. You are absolutely correct in that throughout history, mankind has learned "nothing". We continue to repeat our terrible behaviour. Sad to read, but truth every word. Nicely penned.
I Am Like My Mother... (Poetry) - 9/27/2009 7:44:29 AM
...and she is so very beautiful...confident explodes from her inside the photo!! Strong & Beautiful...
and I also enjoyed reading her beautiful spirit inside her poem...

Will We Ever Learn? (Poetry) - 9/26/2009 8:46:44 AM
It is said that Earth is Satan's world. It's difficult not to accept
some truth in that belief. This has always been a cruel and wicked world. What we can do is focus on God with our hearts, minds and spirits.
I agree with Liana Margiva and other reviewers: A powerful write!
Will We Ever Learn? (Poetry) - 9/26/2009 5:01:41 AM
hello Bernice, I didn't pass you on by. Anyway, the world problems will make us bleed, until we shut the doors on the bad and focuse on the good, as you say love is sweet and sour, life is sweet and sour.
The sweet has enough power, to overcome the sour, my lovely flower, take care
Will We Ever Learn? (Poetry) - 9/26/2009 4:56:38 AM
POWERFUL!!!!!!!!!!!! Liana Margiva

Bernice, this is so powerful!
Will We Ever Learn? (Poetry) - 9/25/2009 8:53:50 PM
Wow! our world has inspired you and our other writer friends to use your gifts of writing to show the pain seeping in and spreading itself among us.
Yet, there are good things happening in our world, giving us joy in the witnessing of strangers helping others who are experiencing tragedy of one kind or another.
Thank God for the good that is in our world.
Will We Ever Learn? (Poetry) - 9/25/2009 6:16:37 PM
We are certainly thinking along the same lines, Bernice; and I can so relate. A moving and meaningful offering. Thank you. Love and best wishes,
Will We Ever Learn? (Poetry) - 9/25/2009 6:00:22 PM
Those that forget history are condemned to repeat it - seeing it, even now - heartbreaking. But I keep looking to the skies for peace, for love, for the second coming - even so, Come, Lord Jesus. Amen. POWERFULLY penned sadness -
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
Will We Ever Learn? (Poetry) - 9/25/2009 5:44:36 PM
A powerful, stirring, deeply felt pen and I'm with you every line. Regis's post today has a similar theme, frustration, disappointment, guilt for our mistakes and it would seem no chance of our ever learning.
Will We Ever Learn? (Poetry) - 9/25/2009 5:17:51 PM
I await the ashes to begin anew.....
Be always safe,
Will We Ever Learn? (Poetry) - 9/25/2009 3:58:23 PM
Your words echo in the hollow empty souled aisles of the churches, schools and political gathering spots and beg to be heard. It is a sad world at times for sure but...and to play the devil's advocate...there is also so much beauty and love to counterbalance at least some of the evil...a baby's gurgle, a husbands smile a flower, a sunset...you get the picture.
Will We Ever Learn? (Poetry) - 9/25/2009 3:32:01 PM
Boy, can I relate. I be a sinner too. But I keep trying not to. Liz
Will We Ever Learn? (Poetry) - 9/25/2009 2:07:04 PM
I am writing a new book, and I call it "God?: The Novel." In ot a man by the name of Truman Butler, after accidentally backing over his baby brother, goes on a search, trying to find anyone who can explain to him in words that can be understood, why God allows innocent children (the key word here is "innocent") to be afflicted with horrible and deadly diseases and accidents like what happened to his little brother. I am so excited about this book, it is a search for Truman and also for me.
In reference to your poem I am not a very religious man, although I was brought up and baptized in the Baptist Church, but if the Bible is to be believed many say that these are the last days.
Will We Ever Learn? (Poetry) - 9/25/2009 2:01:35 PM
I can pray that we will learn but when there is no answer because everyone has to want to learn. Thank you bernice for a very sad but honest write.
Newfie hugs, Rose
Will We Ever Learn? (Poetry) - 9/25/2009 1:35:41 PM
Sad to say, but I don't think we will ever learn. Strong write, Bernice.
I Am Like My Mother... (Poetry) - 9/25/2009 4:03:07 AM
It is plain to see that your sister and you not only share being both lovely ladies but also a talent in expressing your feelings to perfection when you want to say what is in y our heart. This is one awesome tribute to your mom and the only suggestion I would make is to get rid of the coloured print...it detracts from the colour of the words themselves.
I Am Like My Mother... (Poetry) - 9/24/2009 10:25:58 PM
Such a lovely poem, Bernice, and Happy Birthday to your mother!
