    Li-ling – lovely poem and you are indeed a poet. We often go around living like we don’t deserve so many things, including beauty, love, success, happiness etc but we absolutely do. Your poem is a wonderful analogy telling us we deserve all of that and more. We tell kids that they are special and unique all the time but we as adults need to be reminded of this message as well. Thank you for sharing your creative talents through this poem:) (as you did with the present moment poem as well!!)

    Hey Vishnu! You are too kind. What you say is very true indeed, there is nothing different in the extra-ordinaryness of each and every one of us, even though we may have long grown up past the age of being told so. Really appreciate your stopping by. Thanks.
