You're Still a Good Person

This window
is only so
grimy
that as long as you
don't remind yourself there's a window in front of you,
you'd think you could
reach out and
touch the
flowers on the roadside.

Lira! I keep coming back to this and I really want to use it in the beginning of the book I'm working on; of course you would be credited. Is that okay?

This is fascinatingly simple. I love it! The metaphor is extremely effective without being pretentious. Personally, I am a lover of pretentious metaphors so It makes me jealous to see someone doing it so effectively!! Great job. Wonderful work.

This is beautiful and yet it humbles anyone who reads it. Yeah, we trick ourselves into thinking we're great when there's so many problems. You did a wonderful job of describing that in a much deeper way with simpler words. Great job!
