  • Heil Mich

    Aloha! My poem is actually something I'm submitting for school and I'm unsure if it's okay or not. So comment constructive criticism please! I'm hoping it's not all hate... Anyways, it's a poem I based on John Boyne's book 'The Boy At The Top Of The Mountain' which is a great novel - go read it. It's really about the struggle and changes Pierrot/Pieter goes through during the book and how he changes dramatically as a person.
