Praise can be a real picker-upper: when friends compliment
Me about my poetry, I feel truly happy; it’s like flying with joy!
I lose my identity and become one with my poems.
Each one represents a different aspect of my personality:
The sad ones,
The happy ones,
The inquisitive ones,
Those describing nature
As well as human feelings and behavior,
Those celebrating a particular event or a special day in my life,
Those recounting a universal feeling or a personal experience.
They are all precious, linked to my soul, and
Like scattered pieces of a puzzle, they fit together to
Represent ME! Someday, I’ll publish my own book of Poetry,
And whenever someone praises it, I’ll be full of Pride!
