i cannot quite read.

Wow you are so talented! I relate this a lot to my paternal grandfather who passed away two years ago and is very similar to yours. Sometimes family can judge you but I agree you should learn to live in the present and be happy with out having a fancy job/being married. Keep up the great work!

You've done a wonderful job here.
Your intricate descriptions of the race and the emotions conferred by it is excellent.

This piece is a beautiful reminder of how ugly teenage years can be. It's real and it hurts but it's so good. Please never stop writing!

Your description of the change and how sometimes our parents don't have words to tell us that they love us and use material things as a substitute is relatable. My family has never really been open about their feelings but we show our love through little things and that's why it hit so close to home. I love this piece! Keep up your amazing work!
