Watching you grow

by bernardtwindwil

There are many of you who I have watched through this year.

Your grammar and spelling have made progress. But at your age, you are in a hurry. Your skill at using words to express your thoughts has grown dramatically.

There have been surges forward and some in retrograde

On a personal level, I have seen many of you grow through your troubles. I have seen a few slide back into the dark morass of mental anguish. I wish I could take your pain away.

You have swelled my heart with pride your life is limitless

The love of literature and language has exceeded my wildest hopes. I am humbled by your talent and your will to be heard.

In moments of vanity, I hope that I encouraged you.

I think that you will be a part of my legacy. You have given me meaning in my waning life. I hope that I will have helped give you the passion for writing and writing.

I have made it my mission to protect you from trash.

I have objected to frank porn on this site with no redeeming message. I have also seen hate and racism disguised as a post. You all have a pristine innocence that helps make you great writers.

Why I hate pornography

I don't use it myself I don't even own a pornograph. Porn debases human dignity. I don't think of it in terms of sin. I think of it as part of human trafficking, degradation, and exploitation.

I wanted you to know how good you could be.

A few of you knew you were good, most didn't. You were reaching out with a tentative offering. I read those and was blown away by the talent.

I wanted everyone who posted to have a comment.

I see that others have helped share my quest. Sometimes there are up to twenty likes and no comments. The key here is to tell writers what they are doing right. Any idiot can criticize.

I wish you all an adventurous future.

Moderation is for monks. Live wildly. Love fiercely. Laugh uproariously. Taste the full spectrum of life.

Thank you for your comments! It looks like you have helped many writers with encouragement! Thank you for that too. As not everyone is willing to look at young writers/beginners work. I'll try my best to improve my language and write better! Thanks again. :)

I want to thank you for all of your comments. At times those comments kept me going. I have always felt as if my writing wasn't up to par and struggled with the idea of sharing those personal thoughts. It's really an inspiration when I need it the most. So thanks a lot.

I have always been into maths more than English but when my friend introduced me to this website, I'm like what the hell am I doing. But your comments and words of encouragement have made me enjoy writing. And i will never forget how you helped defend my religion against those who were trying to taint it. Thank you!

I appreciate what you've done for me! The only problem I have with my writing is that I can't put words into how much I'm thankful for your words. Thank you.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read my stories and poems. I really do appreciate it. But most of all, thank you for encouraging me to write more and expand my horizons with photos that I use to give my stories even more life. 😃😃😃
