Let society's dream roll with it's repetitive rhythmic rims
The commute but never met
The refuel but never replenished
The repeat, always
The ever changing colors
Green's glories
Red's remorses
Yellow's yearns
Placed on the paved tar current of freedom
Pre assembled and pre freed
A freedom limited by the vessel
But a freedom chosen by the lights

I really like the idea behind this poem. However, it seems a little choppy. the flow and rythm of this poem doent feel right.

I really liked this. It makes a good point about the way our society is built around freedom, yet inherantly limited in it's freedom simply because of the way it works. You have gorgeous use of repetition and alliteration that leaves just a toutch of magic in an otherwise realistic poem. Not to mention the last two lines were deep and toutching and a fantastic hook to leave the reader pondering your ideas. I'm afraid to say I have no sugestions, this is just to good to mess with.

I really like this! It really paints a picture for me. However, the flow is a little choppy. Other than that, great job.

I'm sorry, i accdently commented on this twice. By choppy i mean the flow of it is hard to follow. I dont know when to pause. maybe this is just the rythm you us to write, and thats okay but for me, its hard to follow/
