"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when their right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust noone but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together."
— Marilyn Monroe

I blink my eyes slowly as I turn my head.
The wet grass chills on my legs.
Cooling them from the hot summer sun.
I lean back on the old willow tree.
I glance up, spotting a small fawn eating grass peacefully.
Not even minding me.
I slowly and quitly grabbed my camera, which was hanging around my neck by a strap.
I flash a picture. The fawn glances up, sees me, and returns eating glass.
At that moment I relized that he didnt mind me, even though im a human and he is a small fawn.
We were different in everyway and he didn't mind me one bit.
I guess the lesson I learned that day under the willow tree was that no matter where your from or who you are we are all the same.

This poem is nice, but it needs to be edited a little bit. You have a few spelling errors and you switched tenses a few times.

Nice job, though. :D

I thought this was okay. It is not particularly moving or thought provoking, and you really spelled out everything. (Not to mention some spelling errors:"quitly grabbed my camera") However, your imagery is great, the voice of the narrator is simple and clear, and the topic scene could really be expanded on. I think this definitely needs some editing, refining, proofreading, and maybe some expansion, but it has potential.
