Dear life,
How are you doing?
I am writing this letter to you
From the bottom of my heart
I hope you get it as soon as possible

Your cold breeze I have felt before
On a lonely dark night,
The anger of the street
With the companion of ravenous fellows
And innocent destitute

Dear life
You are a good teacher
You’ve thought me well and your ways I have learnt
Though those experiences were not sweet
Like the juice of a bitterleaf

My heart you’ve shifted backward
My eyes you’ve made to smile

Dear life
Am so grateful

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Review Request (Direction): 
What did you think of my title?
How was my language use?
What did you think of the rhythm or pattern or pacing?
How does this theme appeal to you?
How was the beginning/ending of the poem?
Is the internal logic consistent?
Editing stage: 


I think you have learned something here after all. I like everything about this one. Only critique is that it is [taught] not thought.
Other than that; I have no criticisms, just praise for a well thought out and written poem. Sharp images!
~ Geezer.
