    • 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.

    • Roman, your poem was amazing. I loved the structure of the poem and the things you described in it were very meaningful.

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!
