    That was a very insightful and well-written poem. The picture depicts the poem’s theme perfectly as well. It makes me rethink why I do what I do on a daily basis. I am a poet as well who writes with similar themes, and I understand just how much thought and time goes into this. I put my poetry on Instagram @shannonpoetryspam if you would like to look.
