It takes a lot of courage to show your dreams to someone else - Erna Bombeck

In three words i can sum up everything I've learned in life: it goes on -Robert Frost

Live, Love, Laugh - ______

Hope, Love, breathe <3 - Me


I look around, everything is okay
I see the world in a special kind of way
I notice the trees in the morning breeze
And I realise, this isn't me

I know what you’ll say
But I'm bigger than this
And I’ll find myself someday
So, I’m just going to hold on and on

I see you laugh, I see you smile
And all I do is run a mile
I’m too big for here
I want to be somewhere else today

So just believe me, just believe IN me,
I will go and maybe be
Who I am inside
And maybe just maybe, it will work

This is very good. It definitely made me think, but once I got it, I was like... wow! Beautiful! :)

This has great imagery and made me think a little bit. Like, made me try to stand in your shoes so I could experience this perspective :) I liked it.

What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger.

Don't let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.

Dream like you will live forever, live like you will die today.

This flows really nicely, and yes, it is relatable. I like the subject, it's happy.

Fall in love or fall in hate; Get inspired or be depressed; Ace a test or flunk a class; Make babies or make art; Speak the truth or lie and cheat; Dance on tables or sit in the corner; Life is divine chaos. Embrace it. Breathe. And enjoy the ride...

it shows confidence and sincerity,  very nicee :)

i really enjoyed reading this poem! it was relatable, uplifting, well-worded...why isnt this in the magazine again? lol but seriously!

the only thing that seemed to stick out as less than perfect was how "in" was capitalized in the last stanza - it just lended a less professional tone to the poem than was present in all the rest. ah well, I really really really like this poem. (and i see you are from Dublin! thats really cool! I like to see that people everyone feel the same things, as silly as that might sound. its true.)

i enjoyed your writing style emensly (however thats spelled :P) so please keep writing!

"According to some, heroic deaths are admirable things. (Generally those who don't have to do it. Politicians and writers spring to mind.) I've never been convinced by this argument, mainly because, no matter how cool, stylish, composed, unflappable, manly, or defiant you are, at the end of the day you're also dead. Which is a little too permanent for my liking." — Jonathan Stroud (Ptolemy's Gate)

I like it!  The thought is very coherent, the idea is amazing, and the poem is very relatable. :)  The only thing I would work on is the rythme - it seems a bit off (but that may just be me lol).  Overall, great job! :D
