The world tries to squash us into its mould
warping our character as we grow old.
Nibbling away over the passing years
trying to make us assertive and fierce.
I’m so glad that you have worked it all through
and decided to stay as the “Lovely You”
Valerie I have written the above 6 liner in response to your poem and would like permission to give reference to your poem when I put the 6 liner which I have called The Lovely You in my list of poems. If you are not happy with this then I will NOT include the reference.
