    Today could not be topped in its harshness towards me

    Because, when you take a close look,

    This world we live in is just hell

    • Jimmy,
      I love this poem. It’s very personal and gives the reader a good idea of who you are and what made you the way you are.:) Hope to hear more written by you!

    • This is a really sweet poem that gives depth into who you are and what defines you. Well written!

    • Jimmy,
      I really liked your poem. Just 16 lines gave me insight into who you are and what made you that way. I liked how you incorporated many different aspects of your life, like cold fall nights, a never disappearing wish, and even fried chicken. It all helped me see a little of what shaped you and what you’re like. Thank you for your post.

    James, if you get up you must walk all over your clothes.

    You will come back with cloth on your feet,

    small black socks that will reak.

    Stay in bed, James. Lie still, do not go.

    See how the floor is

    • Jimmy,
      I really enjoyed your poem. I can relate to this in so many ways. Just like everyone else I know, mornings are hard for me. I am constantly hitting my snooze button and rolling over to get more sleep. Thanks for sharing.

    • This poem is really good. I can relate because mornings really aren’t my thing

    • Jimmy,
      I really like your poem because I relate to it so much.

    I am persistent

    but do not disregard

     

    for it resonates within me

    my mind will deteriorate

    one day

    and with thoughtless responses

    you will find me consumed

    come daylight

    • Jimmy,
      I really enjoyed your piece and found that it has a powerful message about the frailty of the human mind. Definitely something I will be thinking about more now. Thank you for your piece.
