Making friends is often the key, isn't it? Thanks for taking part in Poetry Jam. Hope to see you again.
Yes, Mary... making friends is the key :)Isn't that what we try to do here too, by sharing our poems and thoughts...
It is sometimes hard to feel you will fit in. Eventually most kids do, don't they? Welcome to Poetry Jam!
Thanks Gabriella. Most kids do fit in... it's just that for some the effort from the parents' side has to be monumental...
I really like the direction you went with the challenge ... different, intriguing.
Thanks Helen. This was actually the first thing I thought of.When I think of school, I think of my kids' going to school :)
It's a funny feeling when your child finally gets adjusted and "stays in there" having made friends finally....sweet letting go.
Very true, Donna. Thanks for reading and for commenting :)
This seems to be the view of a mother of a shy child starting school. I had one of those and it was a challenge. Thanks for linking at Poetry Jam!
Thanks for the wonderful welcome :)
adjusting to the new world...nice take on the prompt...welcome to Poetry Jam :)
Aww, so sweet.
Thanks a lot, Laurie... I am glad you liked it :)
Hi Nimi...looking forward to seeing your comments on other Poetry Jam participants' blogs. Smiles. We all like our poems to be read.
I agree, Mary... And one does gain a lot from reading others' poems too...Thanks!
awww...for some it is hard to be comfortable...and they need that encouragement...i am glad they made friends...
So true, Brian. Thanks...
The friends we make early in life may shape our personality and they are often the ones we always go back to. However, it is difficult to reach out that first time...
Such a struggle it is to fit into the ways of life... Thanks for reading and commenting, Nicholas :)
