Asam poam
Benjamin, I'm an English (ESL) teacher and I'm looking for a poem of yours I once heard. It's called Who we are or Who are we and it talks about many differences and similarities among people. I haven't been able to find it anywhere and I know it's published on a children's book, I came across it at a Congress about Education and one of the presenters read it, it was beautiful. Could you please tell me where I could find it? I don't remember the name of the book either.

I am so excited to have discovered you on Poemhunter, Benjamin. You are a wordsmith par excellence, an inspiration, a delight to cope with my various stresses (and I am sure those of all your readers) , a shining light in (and a gift to) our world community. However, I am extremely disappointed that you only have 20 poems posted here, especially as I can't afford to buy your books, or anything that isn't what is best for my 5 animals (a dog, a cat and 3 previously feral kittens whose mother brought them to my garden in February) or essential to my survival. I would be so happy if you would post many more of your poems. Failing that, I can keep re-reading those you have posted. Thank you for your giggliciously serious poetry. :)
Read A Day in the Life of Danny the Cat, to my Year 5 class last week...they loved it. Read Danny the Cat Lives On! today. They thought it was going to be fun...they were shocked. They understood your message though and your emotions. Respect, Man!
