A Few Visitor Comments

This poem is excellent! It is a poem that many teenagers should read. It's important to treat others fairly - equally. I truly believe this poem is true in life.
This is a poem I sought without completely knowing what it was I was seeking. It's a poem that can be related to, and relate I do. I hope that you won't mind me sharing this with others I know, and perhaps one day I'll be able to write a poem that someone else has been seeking without intent.
This is truly superb after reading this poem I felt the writer has described my own feelings of loneliness.
A beautiful poem and so elequently put. When we are happy alone, then we are more likely to radiate that happiness, while in the company of others. Thank you for sharing!
I think this poem was beautiful and deep. It truly touched me I was hypnotized by words. Great job.
This poem is talking about exactly what I feel like I'm going through right now. It was wonderfully worded. Keep up the awesome work.
This poem has really reached into the depths of my soul. I am glad that I found it, and even more so, that you wrote it.
