Life is hard
Love is harder
Time is slow
People are slower
Days pass us by
Soon a year is to come

A heart is like a violin
If you're gentle
It plays
however, if you're harsh
It breaks...

I really like how you can get such a strong message across using so few words. This is really good. :)

I really enjoyed the simplicity of this poem. I personally thought it was a bit short and maybe you could have found a way to make it more deep. However i really liked it and thought it was quite beautiful.

This is a really great poem... I love your comparison of a heart to a violin. In my opinion it could've been longer XD but maybe I just like reading your work. I don't know. Hope you keep writing :3
