I liked the final section the best; it pulled the whole piece together, and made it that much more honest and angsty.

it's so good to see poems about real global humanitarian issues.

and you wrote about it beautifully.

the only part i didn't understand was this:

One of the best poems I have read on the topic. Ever. The imagery is so vivid and fitting. The flow of the words and the word choice builds up the intensity through the poem, like starting with a distant memory and then getting closer to the issue, and whether you planned this correlation or not, it's perfect. I also thought you ended it very effectively.

In response to your last review reply: Nope, I'm still writing. :) Lately I've just been posting things as chapters to a collection.
