This poem contains so many levels. The free form lends to the wandering thoughts brought on by the "unchained" tune.
Well done!

This is a beautiful expression of the grandmother's pain yet understanding of her grandson's decision. I love how you intertwined the musical words into the poem.
Great poem. You describe something that occurs to me too often as I get older, the seemingly endless pattern of mistakes and consequences we live our lives through, especially with war. I just can't imagine watching it play out again and again over the course of several millennium. Well written!

Linda,

Congratulations on your ribbon! It is well deserved!

I don't know what happened to my "original" comments prior to this day??? This is the third time this has happened. Oh well.

Your entry has touched my heart and stayed with me long after I was through reading it.

Congratulations again.

Great job! God Bless~
