  • In situations fraught with worry and despair, sayong “better than nothing” is more than fair.It’s better than nothing.It’s better than nothing. It’s what you say when the entire day you’ve been wasting awa

    • Dear Geno,
      Your poem is very interesting and inspiring to me. it is indeed a true fact that one thing is better than nothing. I hear a lot of people say “it’s better than nothing”. I usually hear people say “this is bad, but it’s better than nothing”. I would say that walking in a forest is better than nothing. thank you for writing.

      • Dear Geno,
        I am kind of confuse with your poem, “It’s better than nothing,” because you didn’t really give me any background of what the topic was and what I’m reading about. In the beginning of your poem you talk about having fun and how you couldn’t find it but after that you talked about how things don’t go right. I believe that when you right a poem make sure what you are talking about is consent. To me the main message of your poem is that you shouldn’t complain about things because it better than nothing. I know this because of in one of your lines you stated, “It’s what you say when the entire day you’ve been wasting away,Finding it hard to have fun, feeling like you just need to run, to someplace where the day is done” stood out to me about your message because it really explains how you feel about life and how people shouldn’t take anything for grant/complain.One line that stands out for me is, “It’s better than nothing. It’s what you say when the entire day you’ve been wasting away” I think this line is powerful because you are saying no matter what you do, at least you are doing something because others don’t have the oppurtninty to do anything. This line will also stand out to others because it explaining don’t take things for granted.I really liked how you used the literary device of imagery(sight)when you said “and you see nothing, no trace of light”. I think these lines show imagery because it explains how they are using there sight to see. How it shows how they have no trace of light so they can’t see.Your poem reminds me of a poem that I once wrote which was about rape. This reason I wrote this poem was for people that read it to recognize topics like this. I’m not sure if you know but rape is a topic that isn’t talk it about as much as it be.Your poem sends an important message about geo people should be grateful for what they have and how they shouldn’t take it for granted. This is very important because you are making other realize what’s going on.Thanks for your poem. I look forward to seeing what you make next. Something that what interests me but other people as well would have to be important topics that are not really recognized. If you would like to see one of mines you can search my name up and look at a couple of mines. To have different structures in your writing instead of keeping it the same switch it up.

    • I am satisfied by your poem, “It’s better than Nothing,” because first of judging by the title I could’ve inferred what it was going to be about. Secondly, I like how you kept on repeating “Is better than nothing” and repetition in a poem makes it stronger. Also it reminds the reader about what the topic is. I really enjoyed how you used the literary device, alliteration and what that is it’s when you repeat sounds or letters and you did that by repeating “It’s”. This is not a bad thing that you did it’s actually an extraordinary thing because it just makes your poem even stronger. Thanks for your poem. I look forward to seeing what you make next. Keep up what you are doing because this poem was really good either though it was pretty short.
      Sincerely, Bryan Moreno

    • Dear Geno,

      I am amazed with your poem “ It’s better than nothing ” because the words you used in the poem are really powerful. The way you decided to line up each phrase is outstanding. When I write poems it’s confusing on how to line up the phrases I get so confused and that leads me to give up but you the way you setup your poem was very clear. To me the main message of your poem is overcoming hard pathways. I know this because of “ Finding it hard to have fun, feeling like you just need to run, to someplace where the day is done ”. This line to me is saying how sometimes you just feel alone, you feel like you just can’t be yourself and you want to escape. When you’re going through hard paths you don’t have the energy you have when you’re happy. You feel like it’s not worth it and you want to leave. One line that stands out for me is, “when nothing goes right, and you see nothing, no trace of light, ”. I think this line is understanding because many people go through the exact same thing. When it feels like nothing is going the way you expected it to be you feel your energy drain out. People often feel alone in the dark and they can’t get the sunlight back. I really liked how you used the literary device of anaphora when you said “ It’s better than nothing… It’s better than nothing “. I think these lines show anaphora because you repeated that same exact line about 5 times in your poem. The way you repeated it made sense because after any other line you used “ it’s better than nothing ”. Your poem reminds me of a poem that I once read. The poem talked about being alone and how it can be difficult in those times. The poem also stood out to me because the terms used in the poem really supported the message the author was proving. Both your poem and the one I read have similarities that connect! Your poem sends an important message about depression, bullying, anxiety, mental health, etc. Your poem is showing how it feels like to be in the shoes of the ones who go through it. A lot of empathy is shown and the way you are expressing it is in a positive way! Thanks for your poem. I look forward to seeing what you make next. Your writing is amazing and don’t give up. Keep up your hard work and it might lead you to brighter places!

      Sincerely,
      Imelda Pablo.
