  1. Dear Terah, Today a year ago our granddaughter died. self inflicted choking. Not to kill herself but to get high Your poem today speaks to my heart. I think it is one ofthe best you have written. Very clear pictures. God bless you, Martha Hodges

    1. It has really been a year? Wow. I did that when I was young too. I remember it well.

      I wrote another poem one time, it was “How High” “How high must I get? High enough that it hurts when I fall?” I can’t remember the rest but I wish I did so I could share it with you right now, Martha. Your granddaughter and I have something in common. A stupid sense of bravery. I am sorry.
