Life is...

Life is real,
not a dream world
Life is a tragedy
not a comedy
Life is a journey,
not a destination

This is wonderfully written. And so true. Good Job (:

To mostly get this all together it took me about 1 month to think of how to put everything together into something really short

ummmhmmm.!

This poem is good, and its meaningful. People around the world should read this poem everyday. Life is truly a gift and every moment should be cherished. People will constantly go through ups and down in their life, but they should be strong. " Life is real, not a dream world" is my favorite lines.  It's my favorite lines because if anyone gets shot in real life, they are gone forever, but some people think they live in a dream world where they are perfect. This poem is great the way it is, but it can be longer.

This poem is short and meaningful. I like the lines "Life is real, not a dream world." Its telling us that don't think of life as a fairy tale. You should explain more on life is a tragedy.

I love how short and dramatic this poem is. The last two lines are my favorite and so true. Life is a journey, and just like your poem, it is short. I love how it all ties together, the length and content summing up what life is in only a few stanzas. 

I would love for you to add on to this, though in another poem. Keeping the same idea, but making it longer would give the reader more to read.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take... but by the moments that take your breath away.
