My Only Published Poem (March Contest)

My friends wonder why
I don't often write
a poem about you;

"maybe she's not aware
of the Mother's day!"

"or maybe she doesn't care,"
they'd simply say.

They didn't know then
that you're the only
published poem I've
ever had
mother.

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?

Roscoe Llane,

Religion will rip your faith off, and return
for the mask of disbelief that's left.

Thank you for the supporting words. Much appreciated.

All because the poem deserved a wow Rula. Pretty out of the box way of writing this one...

Regards,

of free verse, something I wish I was better at. It is also brimming with love and pathos. It shows consummate skill the way you keep the winding up of the main point to very last word. Alone, the first and third verse make up a poem but the middle verse is a masterful inclusion.

A short sweet poem. Has your mother read it?

Unfortunately Alzheimer left her with very little appreciation for anything...if at all.
V.much appreciate your kind visit Stan.
