Time will reveal everything I want to know now.
I wish time was just the name of a street.
I’d drive a black car up and down time.
I’d be happy.

Although this poem is short it is very thought provoking. I like the whole idea of time in the poem and how simply you put the words to be understood by many people.

It doesnt have much power. I wasn't shell shocked or stunned at the end.....you should work on the ending. This poem is very good, yet it also has great potential!!!! 8)

I really like how short and sweet this piece is. Powerful, but no gaudy words to get in the way. Beautiful idea that all people can relate to!(:

I wish you continued writing more because it's very promising and I really like it. But the last verse just cut the flow to it.

It was a good poem but it was simple...too plain add some funk or a big bang at the ending make us feel what you felt when you rote it make us feel your words your mood your atmoshere so that we aren't reading just empty words.

Nice idea. However, I think it would have been much, MUCH better if you had elaborated on the idea. Make it longer...captivate your reader. Make us SEE and FEEL your idea, not just read it...

Nice Metaphor. I think that the last line is weak, though. Like there's no real significance or "oomph" to it.

I disagree. I think the fact that the conclusion is so simple and concise makes the piece very powerful. The author could've just as easily tried to stretch the ending out with a jumble of words, be he/she got the point across with  3 simple words. Nice work!!

I agree because the words just seem to flow, even though it's brief it's all that's been like encased in it u know? like such a dense concept and the selected wording. I do like it-it's something you could sit on for a while just thinking about.

Very true. I can feel the same way, and the feelings that you are expressing are great. Don't be afraid to write anything!
