  • Dear Octavio

    I’m assuming that this is about soccer or some sport. If it is then I really like how you didn’t straight up say it but instead made hints to it such as ball, pass, and shoot.

    • Dear Oliver,

      I was interested in your post because of the photo. I really like the Ford GT.

      I am curious about a few lines from your poem. One part of your poem that stands out for me is where you say, “We don’t go in
      That might be a bad choice
      With the blinding lights in our face”

      What do the blinding lights represent? Are they car lights? I only ask this because your car photo makes me think that.

      Thanks for your photo and poem.

    • Dear Oliver,
      I am interested in your poem because of the way you talk about how cars made you happy.

      I like the lines when you say
      Our place of happiness”
      I like this line because of how peaceful it sounds. A place of happiness.
      I look forward to seeing more of you work.

  • I loved how you mentioned all of the good and bad in your life. It really struck me when you talked about gang violence and your incident with a gang. I can’t even imagine how i’d feel if that happened to me. I would also like to say how sorry i am for your losses and I can’t even get the slightest idea on how i’d react if that happened to me. It…[Read more]

  • Dear George,

    I liked how you were able to express this place you love. The photos you took were taken from many different points of view and really can show all of this places features. It was also good how you took the pictures with people in the park to show that you’re not the only person who likes this location.

    I feel that it’s very interesting how you thought about this topic due to how so many people wouldn’t think about wether god is real or not so deeply. It’s a topic I never really thought far into and your opinion has really hooked me on how you think about this. I agree with your idea of all the different reasons why people may believe in god or…[Read more]

    I really liked how much you went into your life and how passionate you seem about it. Overall i thought it was very good and enjoyed seeing things like your life dreams and how you want to fight against the bad being done in America to make life fair for everyone. I am also impressed how you weren’t scared to just let all your emotions and…[Read more]

    I liked how you brought real world problems into your poem. It really made a deeper understanding of the struggles in the situation. You talked about the weather changing and all of the destruction that is happening which can make people think deeper into the poems theme.

    you’re welcome Georgina or Curious George! 🙂

  • Your poem was very deep going into so much detail about your life. I liked how it showed the good and bad that can happen in a persons life story. Parts such as when you were cut by a thorn were very engaging because of how you include the smallest thing yet it can have a big effect.

    • Dear Oliver:
      I am interested in your poem, “Supercar Supreme,” because I too find cars very intriguing.
      One line that stands out for me is, “Determined to have them all In the future” I think this line is Funny because… We all would love to have a supercar one day and I really Hope one day you will achieve you goal.
      Your poem reminds me of a poem that I once read. It was also about cars, but rather it was about a bad experience with a car rather than a good one.
      Thanks for your poem. I look forward to seeing what you make next. Maybe it will be about cars or maybe something else I know it’s gonna be just as good as this.

    • Dear Oliver,
      Your poem “You Don’t Remember” made the think about all the things I do and don’t remember. I too remember my great grandmother, and the layout of her room in the retirement home but I only remember sparse bits of my life from before fifth grade. It’s something that doesn’t get very much attention brought to it. Your line “I don’t remember when I first got into cars though” really resonates with me. I too am into cars but I don’t remember the exact day or event that caused me to start working on them and even consider it a career path, I just remember the choice was made over a summer.

      Thanks for your poem. I’m looking forward to what you write next. The fact that you wrote about a topic that isn’t though about often and that you appear to have a similar interest to me will bring me back.

    • Hey, Oliver. I stumbled across your post and was compelled to read it by the title. I really like what you wrote and if your title was set in place seriously, I encourage you to keep working until you are more confident in your work. I would love to hear more about where you are from in the future!
