Oh no, my daughter is a poet.
Proofread Your Heart
When hatred takes over
your heart, whisper to me
when your goddess fails
when the world is gone
when the sound of
guns and bullets
whisper to me for even
I can hear.

Wow. That is all I have to say. WOW.
Thank you for writing.
I agree with WOW, Livia that is a lovely poet
Thank you, Susan. Thanks for writing. That means the world, coming from her art teacher! I’ll be sure to show Livia.
Perfect for National Poetry Month — great job! I’m also a poet. If you visit me at Sunny Room Studio, I write a blog and share some of my poetry there, as well. It’s great you are writing so young and so well! Best wishes.
Thank you. I will share this with my daughter and we’ll look at your poetry site. Best, Martha
