possibilities

since the beginning
I've wanted to change it all
since the beginning
I've walked down this hall
ever white
ever unchanging
i cant fight it
i must go with the flow
rough waters
challenge my sleep
and my sanity
take a deep
calming breath
and try not to think
about possible death
think about
possibilities
ever present
ever unchanging
possible positives
uncountable
possibilities

Hey, this was good. I really liked the smooth transition from line to line, especially the "go with the flow/ rough waters/ challenge my sleep" part. It's nice, with very distinct images but a little abstractness/room for personal variation, which I like in poetry. Keep writing, and if you feel like it, check out my work.

This is good! The only thing i would change is "ever unchanging".... I think that using "ever" and "unchanging" together is awkward. You could use "Ever white, never changing" and keep the same syntax. do you mind checking out my poems? I would really appreciate it! -Keep Writing!

well yeah i get it but it has many different meanings like... you can view it as a window to the future to look ahead to see whats coming or you can look at it as like a person whos like in their past and all they want to do is change then they see the light at the end of the tunnel...

This is beautiful. I could relate. I see it as like a deep struggle to change but the things that hold you down are the things you have to break free of to see the possibilities. and hey, it'd be awesome if you checked out my poem, it's kind of like this one. Keep writing !

I like this haha. Its pretty good, it made me think on some of the things in my past too. p.s. if its not too much trouble, i was wondering if you could look at one of my pieces. Its a poem called "A Loss for Words"
