It amazes me how a story can be told in a rhyming poem. Good job.
Good job! What an excellent poem and an excellent story as well. I admire your grit as well as your poetry and story-telling abilities. Your story touched my heart.

Excellent poem. It would be a contender in my part of the country for what we call, "Cowboy Poetry."

Excellent!

I was mildly distracted my the number of lines that are neatly bisected by semicolons. Varying that structure a bit would make your poem slightly more appealing.

Love the story, the rhyme, the meter.
