Thank you!

This is not a poem. This is a message from the heart. 
A message to say thank you. Thank you to WOL and all it's members for the kindness you have shown. This is the first time that I have shared my life experiences with anyone other than a counsellor and I am truly grateful and humbled by the kindness you have shown. 
It has taken a lot of energy to write the Tenter Hooks series and it's not over yet.  But you guys have been amazing in your support, with kind words at every turn - you give me the strength and courage to continue with this series of poems which are truly dear to my heart. Not just for me but for all those who have experienced terrible things but have not yet found their voices.  WOL is an incredible forum with amazing people and I am very grateful to be a part of it. So, Thankyou - each and every one of you who have read and taken the time to comment. You do not know how amazing you all are!

◄ Kindness.

Friendship by The River. ►

I want to tell you that your series has been a highlight off my WOL experience, Clare. Much as people used to wait by trains for a new installment of Dickens' latest novel to be drpped off, I click on WOL to look for your Tenter Hooks poem.
A triumph. Thank you for writing it ( though I'm sorry you had to experience it first). 💪

I agree with everything you said Clare about WOL and so appreciate your heart-wrenching, transformative Tenter Hooks series and other poems. Poetry really can be a form of therapy and part of the road to healing (it is for me). Blessings on all involved with WOL.
