ends with bankrupt dreams.

"Don't punish yourself," she heard her say again, but there would be punishment and pain, and there would be happiness too. That was writing."
--Markus Zusak, "The Book Thief"

This one isn't as much to my taste as other poems, though it does have the correct number of syllables. A good idea, and true, but it sounds sort of cliché.

Awesome job playing with the classic cliche and turning it into something new and unexpected!!!

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.

Nice job! You took something that has been done before, and you made it your own and very unique! I love the last line, "bankrupt dreams". How beautiful and fresh. Really lovely.

True dat:) lol In fairy tales, there is always a happily ever after, but not in reality. I like the last line, in how this idea is expressed.
