It's All Uphill from Here

Light is but an idal, perfection,
Light is philosophy, intangible.
Light is action, action revolution,
But light is not to be negligible.

Dark is but an ideal, wickedness.
Dark is consuming, a glutton of man.
Dark is a trainer of fools, foolishness.
Why doesn't light do whatever it can?

A few good men are present, but dormant.
Leadership, frenzied because of black night.
young followers try to walk, but they can't,
Collapsing, they laugh with liquid delight.

"So why is the world so dark?" asked the voice.
I say, "It must be the winter solstice."

I like how you explain underage drinking in this.
It's like...good against bad or heaven against hell sort of thing. Great job!

I didn't get the underage part of it.
I was thinking good vs. evil.

I think your poem is not bad at all. I've written some really bad poems. The ending was kind of okay but I liked the other parts to it. I found it very interesting. Keep writing!

I loved your sonnet. Beautifully composed and I think you really have a gift. Your choice of words is truly inspiring. I beg you, keep writing.
