    Dear Octavio

    I’m assuming that this is about soccer or some sport. If it is then I really like how you didn’t straight up say it but instead made hints to it such as ball, pass, and shoot.

    One line that stands out for me is You miss and hate will come. This line is intriguing because of how it’s talking about something that should be enjoyable…Read More

    • Dear Oliver,

      I was interested in your post because of the photo. I really like the Ford GT.

      I am curious about a few lines from your poem. One part of your poem that stands out for me is where you say, “We don’t go in
      That might be a bad choice
      With the blinding lights in our face”

      What do the blinding lights represent? Are they car lights? I only ask this because your car photo makes me think that.

      Thanks for your photo and poem.

    • Dear Oliver,
      I am interested in your poem because of the way you talk about how cars made you happy.

      I like the lines when you say
      “London
      Our place of happiness”
      I like this line because of how peaceful it sounds. A place of happiness.
      I look forward to seeing more of you work.

    Oliver commented on the post, Guitar player from DR

    I loved how you mentioned all of the good and bad in your life. It really struck me when you talked about gang violence and your incident with a gang. I can’t even imagine how i’d feel if that happened to me. I would also like to say how sorry i am for your losses and I can’t even get the slightest idea on how i’d react if that happened to me. It…Read More
