    • Dear, Jhena
      Your poem is amazing. I love the strong words you use. One thing that stood out to me is when you talk about protecting. Also one other thing that stood out to me is when you say “When your sky isn’t so bright, I am the first person that’s willing to fight.” The amount of powerful sentences you use are breathtaking. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because this was very touching.
