A sunny day or a stormy night,

A happy hour or a gloomy week

On my back I lie down



What if I go out tonight?
Am I going to pass tomorrow’s math test?

Where will I be in 10 years?

What will I do?

And so,


Each time, it gets bigger

Like a flower that was a bud yesterday,

But brightens the room today.
Different things each time, none are alike
Just like snowflakes in winter.

For this


For those who stare at me like a maniac, now

“Are you crazy?”

“Dreams are for dweebs.

What a waist of time.”

All I have for you is

Your poem the way in which it waas broken was not like a typical poem. To be truthfull i was suprised in a neutral way, what your trying to get across is strong, but the method in which you are doing it is not getting the message across dtrong enough. I applaud you for your efforts, but you should try to get the same idea across perhaps in a different form. Instead of it being as bubbily as it is try to tone it down a notch so that it holds more depth and meaning. Good Job though, 6 out of ten!!! Keep trying, practice practice practice, that the only way to get better. Im looking foward to reading some future works. ;)
