Theodora Onken's last comments on poems and poets

  • POEM: Girl In Waiting by Susan Williams (10/25/2016 3:00:00 PM)

    Wow! Well, Susan, i recognized the tree; It's the one outside your picture window- kinda across the street...what a beautiful picture you have painted with your words; As for the rest of this poem, it reminded me, of me! ! ! ! ! ! Totally! ! ! ! It was the story of my life-and a first love - that broke my heart; Always hoping that he would return to me and we would live happily ever after-but in life, things do not always turn out that way, do they? He moved on rather quickly and was married by 21. While, i got married straight out of school, pregnant. Marriage lasted all of 7-8 months - and had a miscarriage. Got sick, ended up in hospital-met a resident MD, began dating - got engaged, i broke off, too many years difference-best friend played match maker and i met my 2nd husband and was married 6 weeks later. Been married ever since. Even though i know my husband is my soulmate-i still find myself of memories of my first love of so long ago and how strong it was and how devastated i was in loosing him. Your write moved me to tears, as usual. You have this wonderful, perfect ability to pull emotions straight from my and only you as a writer has been able to do this. i imagine that there are many others who identify with this as well. Perhaps, this was a write about you-that would mean you and i really do have a lot in common...yes, it was a golden time - that fall when i fell, hopelessly in love with a young man-you to this day has a place in my heart. Keep up writing dear Susan, you continue to touch the very depths of my soul- and am sure, as i have already said, you are no doubt touching others in much the same way. This dear heart, is a 10++++++++++++++++++++++++May God Bless You & Yours Always.

  • POEM: What Our World Needs Now by Theodora (Theo) Onken (10/22/2016 11:49:00 PM)

    Susan, i just now found your review. Thank you, thank you, thank you! . Truly believe that God is love and that it is much, much more of God we need in this world. In a world where it seems the human life has been devalued by so many, where hatred, violence, pornography, lawlessness abound - i have never felt HIS absence as much as i do this day. Envy, jealousy, downright perversions are everyday emotions and kindness, empathy, morals, joy, utter happiness, and absolute love are disappearing more every day-this breaks my heart and makes me sick. i pray to God every day for our world, Susan. i also pray for you and your family and many here on this poetry site along with my daily prayers for my family - in need of help right now. It's a different world from even when my mom and dad were alive-and if they can somehow see what is going on right now, from Heaven, i imagine they are horrified. Thank you again, for your very kind review, Susan, and may God Bless You and protect you always. Theo
