This, to me, is a very inspirational poem. It really stresses the importance of just being yourself.

Then again, I guess that's what Miss Luna Lovegood is all about.

This is my third attempt today to resubmit my review which I have to keep rewriting because the system keeps logging me out before I can finish typing it. How frustrating!

I'll try to do this quickly. I love your poem. I can't believe you are only 14 and have such skill as a writer. When I was your age, I loved to write poetry, and I was always to scared to share it with anyone, so I didn't. My best friend used the only poem of mine that I ever let her see as the opening page of our senior yearbook. I made her put "anonymous" next to it. Pathetic, I know.

But I'm trying to raise my daughter differently, I want her never to be ashamed of who she is. I want her, as you gave the words to Luna, to be able to say: "I know who I am. I like who I am." It is so simple, yet it conveys so much. And it is very Luna-like.

The other line that struck me was this: "But I wear my radish earrings with pride and flaunt my butterbeer cork necklace. I made them myself." I almost asked my daughter to refrain from wearing her homemade necklace in her school pic this year, but I decided to let her. I am so glad as this is now my favorite picture of her. It is 100% her. I hope she continues to keep her Luna qualities that you describe so beautifully.

I think JK Rowling would love to read this poem. It reminds me of a piece she wrote on her website (under extra stuff, misc, for girls only). It's all about girls needing to love who they are and not what other girls tell them they should be. You got it down pat with words from the character she created. And they sound like they came from Luna herself. Well done. And keep writing. You're good at it!

Author's Response: Thank you so much for your review and your praise! I think it’s really neat that you can relate you and your daughter to this poem. I’m so glad that you thought I captured Luan’s character well because I was worried I didn’t. Luna is such a wonderful character, but complicated, and it proved to be a little challenging to write about her. Thanks again! Reviews like these make me smile:)

I just wrote quite a heartfelt, praise-filled review of this lovely poem. But I am on my iPhone, and it took me so long that my login timed out, and the review disappeared when I tried to submit it. So sorry. I'll rewrite when I'm on my computer. Until then, let me say that I absolutely loved this. I read it to my daughter immediately and loved it even more aloud. Thank you for sharing it with us.

Author's Response: Oh this makes me so happy!: That you liked the poem so much, and that you shared it with your daughter It's wonderful to know that something you've written has been loved and shared. Thank you so much! I would love to be able to read your other review if you get a chance to write it on your computer. (I also really like your username/pen-name.)
