    • Roman,
      I absolutely love your poem. Although I live in a very different place than you do, your writing gives me a mental image of your town and what you see. I could not imagine being in your situation and experiencing what you have experienced; however, I feel that it is important to try to understand the perspectives of others. Great job!

I don’t know if I will ever live in a reality like yours but you should not get looked down upon because I think you have a real talent for writing. Good Job!
