"i am weird"

I walk along this river.
It is a lonely place.
When I look to see my reflection,
I see a sad face.

I sit beside this river.
I am throwing rocks inside.
Every time I watch a rock sink without trying to float.
I think of how I never tried.

I sleep next to this river.
I wake up to see it still flowing,
Every new day I expect something less.
It shows my life and the never knowing.

One day I realized.
When I sat by the river and cried.
My tears make this river deeper.
This is a river that flows from my eyes

I really like this poem.! personally, my favorite part was how some of the lines rhym but not all. That way is gives it more of a profesional structure rather then it sounding like a class project. Awesome job!

This is pretty good and I liked it. You could add a little more to this and make it a miny story if you wanted to. Like express a message, but nonetheless this is very good!

I was also hoping you could read two of my poems: "Imagination" and "The Story of a Holocaust Survivor" when you get the change.
