The meaning of your poem is so beautifully noted in your author notes. I love your short meaningful poem. It is well-written and well received. Your artwork choice goes well with your message. Your last line made me think that if we accomplish what we were sent here to accomplish then we can proudly die in peace. Just a thought. Best wishes!

I don't understand this poem. I hope it is not a true story about a baby dying. It is beautifully written, using just the right words. Your author's notes could win a prize, as well. Excellent work.

I like it. Your explanation clears up any confusion created by the picture. Its very hard to write short, meaningful poems, but you did it. I love the name and the intent. Good luck in the contest! J

Hi. I think you have said a great deal in these few short words. We all come into this earthly realm not knowing what mark we may make in our lifetime. Hopefully we all can die knowing we have done our best and be proud of those accomplishments. Good luck in the contest. Gramalot8

This reminds me of that biblical scripture ."Naked I entered the world from my mother's womb, and naked I leave, the Lord gives and the Lord takes away, Job 1:20-21.. Well done Bill, beautifully written, blessings, Roy

Once again you have nailed an idea and concept in your adroit fashion. Well said and to the point. Your pieces are simple and direct and other times so thought provoking I save them for last when reviewing. Well done, again.

Very brief poem about life - I think it could also be entered into the Life contest as well as you cover both beginning and the end. It's interesting that entering life was more traumatic than dying in the poem. Very dramatically said in so few words.

This is a very good short poem. A whole lifetime summed up in very few words. It is
very thought provoking. Well done and good luck in the competition.
