Life I think is a series of lessons that build on our accomplishments and within the parameters of our vision.
"Believe in yourself" is an excellent title.

Well done
Blessings

Very nice indeed. This poem was very well-thought out and introspective.

This was my favorite line:

bring only
visions
of what passes
for a journey.

Very nicely done. Thank you for sharing!

This poem was truly wonderful, a density of sound, a subtlety of imagery, and a surreal connection of image to experience.
The tone is soft and peaceful.
Excellent patterns of sound are used to create the music in language rather than ordered meter and rhyme scheme.

An interesting and cleverly constructed piece. How fortunate are we to have brought many of our life's dreams to fruition; to build and own our home, to take our three daughters to Disneyland, to have grandchildren and travel the world. To enjoy the music, laughter and so much more. Thanks for sharing Franky

This was well written rich in Theme and Imagery.
It also, read well and flowed well with no Grammar to Issues.
...
The Adjective and Objective Contents were both Excellent and Exceptional while Descriptive Measures Aligned Perfectly.
Thanks for sharing.

A truly inspiring photo that went well with the feelings that your poem generated. Believe in yourself, definitely your words spoke, keep trying, get up and perservere. Carry on your journey, keep your visions and dream on. Thats all that I felt. Great job..

This work has reached the exceptional level

if I understood correctly, it seems the speaker embraced life with gusto, lived with enthusiasm and good intent, new success, but in the end, found that the dreams he held early on were not fully realized. This is full of delightful word combinations and heart-stirring images... such as: "Accomplishments,
with line
and parameter,

bring only
visions
of what passes
for a journey."
It is really a rather remarkable poem, and I enjoyed it very much.

Victor, I am not sure I understood this one, not as I have understood your poetry in past, but something keeps directing me back to it, so I hope you won't be offended as I try to review it...

I think it is quite profoundly sad, and in all honesty, it resonates with me strongly. We all question our journey, and I think that is what your speaker is doing...

I am thinking your poem is telling what you wanted or expected out of your life and then the results. Our dreams don't always turn out the way we want them, but then, in the end, we can see reality.

Loved how you constructed this with all these fragments of language that create this abstract expressionist, impressionist experience of life. Especially the opening. The feeling of who, what when and where, the in and out of time, lends to this ambiguity of time and space and experience. Great job there. This is almost like a new Romantic sensibility, or a new way of expressing this romantic sensibility of the imperfect nature of experience in terms that the contemporary society can understand. estory
