OMG! Totally loved it! I can completly relate. You know what else step-father suck too. I have an ex step fatehr (my younger sisters dad) and boy was he a crazy. But thats off topic, I know i se the same thing with my mom sometimes, but i don't think its that bad cuz i look mor elike her except for my eyes, but they're a darker blue, but still I think when we go their every two weeks it makes her sad remembering. :) Great poem!

First of all. I'm very sorry. I was in a really terrible mood the other day, and I don't know what compelled me to say what I did. I apologize.
Second of all, I would have never thought I could have offended you. I'm going through a time now where lot of things that I can't control are happening, and that results in a lot of bad moods and a lot of screaming.
Third of all. Your poem. Wow. Excellent. Really excellent. And I'm not saying this in a "i'm-really-sorry-please-forgive-me-since-i'm-sucking-up" way. I'm saying it in a I-mean-it way.

Wow. What a beautiful way to capture the feeling of realizing that we don't have to be our parents. For a long time, I was upset that I was so much like my own father, but decided that I can still be my own person if I don't let his tendencies take over. I'm glad someone (you) has been able to put that feeling into words! Great stuff. :)

Oh this is beautiful! It's so honest and open, as you said, and it's very touching. I like it :)
And thankyou for reviewing my poem, I got a surprise when I saw reviews for it because I'd forgotten it was up here.

1. great poem2. I still think you could do more by using periods and commas to set off pauses and stuff.3. I know just how you feel...only different. hard to explain. There are a few poems I am hesitant to put up. 4. Keep writing. Try reading some Plato or other classical philosophers. You'd like them.

OMG. I can almost absolutely relate to this... my father wasn't a good man either, and I don't love him at all.
Once again, many people can reltae to this as well. I can see as well that it is very personal through the way you wrote it. I really don' know what else to say... other than overflow this review space with lengthy comments and compliments...! :)
| Sanity's Oubliette chapter 1 . 9/24/2006
Hey, it does take a lot of courage to post something so personal and close to home for people to read and criticize. Although there's a lot of hackney phrases, I think this poem was very touching because it was so honest. It was an enjoyable read. Keep it up.
Also, thank you for your review... and just a side, off topic note, I've always wanted to visit Australia. ;)
