    Hii MacKenzie,

    • I really like this poem! It has a twist on it that is different from Cruz’s original work. I feel that the character portrayed is anxious, about to burst (logically so) versus the more out of place, frustrated, character that Cruz presents. Very very well done 🙂

      Thanks for you work,

      Natalya

    • I think it is beautiful how you used language to speak about language barrier. I personally used to have trouble with language because I grew up speaking Spanish and I felt behind in everyday conversations. Well done:)

    • I really thought this poem was beautiful. I liked how you made the text in all capital letter, because it demonstrates how urgent this child’s need for communication is. This addresses a very real issue with the language barrier and how many children feel when they cannot communicate. Great job!

    • I think this was a very thought provoking post. I am taking another language in school right now and initially thought I was decent. What I found was that I am good at written aspects of the language, but conversational I still struggle on. This language barrier is hard to overcome and I thought your work presented a big social consensus.

    Hii Tara,

    I really enjoyed your poem. Thank you for sharing it. It was very short and quick to the point. You also told the facts in a rather humorous fashion which made this poem very enjoyable.

    I think this is a very common question that has been asked. In my opinion, one should be allowed to love whoever they want to without expecting that love in return. Some people are simply capable of loving others more easily. However, I do agree with the fact that we all want to be loved at the ed of the day which makes this topic very complicated.
