There's a lot I like about this poem - the allegory (or metaphors, not sure which term is correct,) the rhythm, and you not only nailed the topic, you delved deep into the heart of it. The rhyme scheme lost me in the middle, when the 4th line of each stanza stopped ending in a -ion word, and the rhythm lost momentum then too. This comes from a novice poet, tho. :) You've given me much to think about when seeking inspiration for my writing. Very nice.
I couldn't agree more. Well done.

I enjoyed this poem and applaud you for using this difficult poetic format! Your stream of thought propels this!
What I found reading this was that the composition of it made me slow down and take in the words. As a "new" writer it shows me another way to express words. Unique and interesting.
WOW! No wonder you placed! A lot to think about. Thank you!
Congratulations on this fun, rhythmic, well-deserved EC.

Wonderful! Congratulations on your EC! So well deserved.
Congratulations on your winning entry! Both 1st place masters and EC are well deserved. Your poem was right on topic in a most unique way. So much so that I found myself reading it a number of times, something I seldom do. Your obvious talent can only be a gift from God.
