This is so sweet and touching! Just a small act of love can mean so much.

Great job on this lovely little ballad.
And a child shall lead them. This poem had suspense and provoked a deep sense of empathy in me. Well done!
Congratulations on your third place win.
This is beautifully written, for its mix of ugliness being conquered by innocence. As I read I began to hear echoes of "The Fool on a Hill," by Lennon and McCartney, but you went far deeper. Congratulations on your placing.
Congratulations! You gave us a real feel for the heart of both the child and the man. Compelling and well written.
Great job Danielle, congratulations!
He is "need"...waiting...she is "love"..rescuing, in between them "hate" and "indifference"...
all so vividly personified in this WONDERFUL poem!! KUDOS! Enjoyed!
