Demons Of Darkness
Gary Edward Geraci said:

By jumping your character concedes her temporary, material problems for what\'s likely to be eternal damnation and eternal company with the very demons she was trying to escape. For me this is a conflict that is not easily resolved. Your short story would be more valiant, heroic, and compelling if your protagonist dug deep within and slayed her inner demons.

Life As Mixed Child

People can be cruel, stupid, unfairly judgmental, etc... and it\'s unfortunate you\'ve already had to face it. Having said that, my hope is your relationship with your folks is a close one, and you\'re able to talk about all the things you\'ve mentioned here so they can help you get past the issues. Embrace who you are and don\'t allow anyone to make feel as though you have to apologize for you being you! Poetry is a great outlet for dealing with whatever this crazy world throws at can be very cathartic and I hope this piece was for you. One technical thing I\'m curios the 13th line you start it with the word \'why\' and I\'m wondering if you meant \'what.\' I think the line would read better, with changing out the word. It\'s a good, and thought provoking poem, Rose. Glad you shared it with us.

Life As Mixed Child
P.H.Rose said:

Rose this just brilliant
I absolutely love it.
I am a mixed child
Also, my dad is
White, my mother
Is half Arab
Had all the racist
Remarks growing
Up...the most stupid
Thing anyone ever told
Me was, what doesn\'t
Kill you makes you stronger
My answer was walk
In my shoes for a day
People can be hurtful,
More often than not
It\'s because they feel
Inferior....all I can say
Is Rose.. It gets easier
As you get older...
Ps. My grand daughters
Middle name is Rose..

A fine write. It sure is madness to be discriminated against due to the colour of one\'s skin. We may as well persecute marmalade if it was blue, or yellow, or whatever! doh!

You are and will always be special dear Rose - your writing shows both talent and tolerance. All humans are from parental mixtures which means we inherit the gift of ourselves as a real individual. Keep writing with head held high.

I feel like there is a idea we all support, like being white acomes with some ups and being black comes with some downs. But your different that good, they say having a mixed is actually good. But ignorance is always going to be around. Know that true beauty lies within. Good poem.

Each of us is an individual and if people do not understand who you are that is their problem, not yours. Enjoy your life as you. Good write.

Hard Love

WELCOME KIMBERLEY ~ THANKS FOR YOUR FIRST POEM ~ WHICH I ENJOYED ! Well structured and bursting with rhyme and rhythm ! BUT ~ I found the context a little sad. In my experience LOVE is a rocky road of ups & downs and Ins & outs. But on the whole I always say \"Better to have loved and lost ~ than have never loved at all !\" What we do gain is experience and resolve. This sentiment is beautifully echoed in your last line \"Well before we say goodbye ~ the girl inside is glad you met her\" hanks for caring ~ Yours BRIAN
