Nice use of time words to create the impact of your poem. Very effective. Sad. Relatable. Would you please comment on my poem titled In the Library? It's a ballad.

Laugh, and the world laughs with you;
Weep, and you weep alone.
For the sad old earth must borrow it's mirth,
But has trouble enough of its own.

This is very interesting! I found myself able to relate in a sense. It reminded me of the tragedies I have heard about that were so depressing, even though I had no previous knowledge about the person. Nice job :)
