I would appreciate any comments on how I can improve my poem Going for Gold which is a fiftieth Anniversary poem. By improvement, I mean the technical aspects as I don't seem to have an ear for metre or rhythm. The words are not set in concrete so if it was necessary to alter some in order to improve it that would be okay too. Writing proper poetry doesn't come naturally to me but this poem I want to be as special as I can make it without it being written by someone else. I am also more than a little embarrassed not only by what I've written but also because I am drawing attention to it. However, I am prepared to live with that.
