I am living

I am special

The slightly altered repetition is cool. Nice job.

I love this poem, it says to much with so few words! the pattern makes your feelings so clear and focused, the poem requires just enough thought to make it memorable but not too much as to make it confusing, great job!

"See, we don't really care who you are;
Everyone is capable of looking up and wishing on a star.
So catch it, so contagious, this day-dreamer's disease,
And hope can be your sword, slaying darkness with belief."

I really loved this! I agree with Sammiekay, it made me think of both sides of whatever I feel...I like "I am wanting, not yet needing" because sometimes you start off wanting something & then you just need it! Anyway, keep writing poetry! I really like your style of writing!

I really like this poem, and being a grammar N.azi myself, I must inform lovelycheese, that she is, in fact, mistaken.  It is not necessary in stylized poetry to capitalize or not.  In many newspaper articles, you will see this type of capitalization used, and although I prefer all caps, both are perfectly viable.

I like the ending part, "I am special Not yet worthless." I can connect to it somewhat, so I like it too. You don't have to capatalize the title (referring to lovelycheese's comments) if that is what you want to write it as.

"If you have something to do, then do it. You can't get wasted time back." ~Ben Carson.

This is the first poem I've reviewed, so I'm not entirely an expert. 

As a picky grammar person, I immediately see the title ~ capitalize I Am Special. Haha sorry...

I very much like the pattern of the poem. However... the mood of the poem is slightly hazy to me. But it seems to make sense to you, and that's what the crucial part is. 

I'm not good at deciphering hidden messages, as in this one, but I can say that your tone is professional sounding, and I like it(; Great job ! :D
