  • Nice Poem Karen. Nice message. Someday we will be able to get together again and someday, I hope your dreams of a better world come to pass.

  • I love the poem Karen, particularly the last four lines, giving us all hope for a better world where we can live i n harmony

  • Karen, you’re poem is wonderful, and I’m especially struck by the third stanza. “…[N]ot an utterance / Of dismissal” is so powerful. “You do you” has the power to be so much more. Thanks for sharing this!
