Dana, I love the strength in this poem. I will WATCH and CELEBRATE all!
Thank you Mary! I hope to continue on this path full of confidence as it should be.
some times we must trip and fall to in the end conquer....i def like the strength in your voice...nice...
I can't tell you how many times I have tripped and fell, but I always get back up again. I'm on an upward path... I can feel it. Thanks Brian!
I see lots of courage in your words :)
Thank you Gretchen! I need all the courage I can get right now.
Cool write, Dana. You go girl!
Such a strong and passionate voice ~ Very nice Dana ~
I appreciate that Heaven!! Thanks!
Brilliant, strong. I can imagine people hanging your poem up as the new year begins
Thank you Jennifer for the awesome compliment! I really appreciate that!
Breathes of strong determination. Very good.
Thank you very much! I appreciate you stopping by to read!
Dana: strength, poise and determination. Change indeed will be in the making... A phoenix rises from its ashes.
I can see it in all it's glory! Thanks Meena!
Wonderful to forge ahead with fearlessness! Good luck! k.
this is a wonderful hunger...going...falling...getting up again...embracing life...i like...
very nice, rhythmic and lyrical. Would love to see this expanded into a song with more verses, you have the refrain/chorus, really nice to work around. This is what I love about lyrics, when you can isolate a part of one, that works as poetry, it's a terrific foundation for songwriting, how I approach it anyhow. Really liked this. Thanks
Thank you very much! I just might have to work on that! I've tried writing one song in the past and it pretty much stunk... but this one has already started out better! I appreciate your comment.
Very nice job, Dana. I agree with Fred. It could be a great song
Very strong! Love it!
Very empowering! Well done
Lovely and powerful poem Dana. This would be wonderful to read first thing every morning, don't you think?
Yes! The woman on fire! This is full of power.
Hi Dana,Really admired the conviction in this poem, how we can keep going even when it is a struggle.Enjoyed this..LT..
Wow. You first comment from Mary took the words right out of my mouth. Seriously, I was saying that as I was scrolling down to comment. Excellent. ~TALU
Well done, Dana! Really strong ending. I really like "I'm consumed with a hunger/to live like never before." TALU
This is great, Dana! Well done. -TALU
To have great poets... there must be great audiences ~ Walt WhitmanThank you for being that audience!
