I enjoyed how you wrote this. I liked the yo-yo allusion, "walk the dog", "'round the world", and "my string tightly curled" (sometimes I feel like that too :) ) I like the possessive "My" in your title. So clever.
I like the way you compared life to a yo-yo. Clever and creative. I've been there a few times myself!
Our lives are not content until we learn the lesson so aptly shown in your poem--just as the Creator made me. Well done.
I love this message, probably because my Creator made me so as well... :D

Very well-written. Great job!
Great twist at the end--I never saw where this was going! Very nice!
Awesome example of personification, and with a lovely message.
I enjoyed this poem. The yo-yo effect takes its toll until we can settle into contentment with the way our Creator made us.
I thought you were talking about a person until the end, and then...well, this was nicely done!
Excellent message, and written in a creative format. Very good writing.
How many times I've ended in tangles, tied in knots by going against my Creator.
Loved it!

Shelley, I'm going to feature this on the Front Page Showcase for the week of July 12. Look for it on the FaithWriters hom page--and congratulations!
