Report abuse nelehjr said... Aug. 13, 2013 at 8:44 pm: 5 stars. Very relatable indeed. Kinda makes me wanna check out more of your work. The elder writers will tell you that is the worst attitude to have. Pick an audience, any audience. Children, young adults, adults, etc. But I like this. You just gave everyone the middle finger in a poem. :) Report abuse Superhero_Fan said... Aug. 12, 2013 at 8:34 pm: Wow, Liv. I could really relate to that, and after looking at all the other comments, everyone else could too! I wouldn't change a thing. Keep it up Liv! Report abuse east_of_ada said...

Its bold and poignant; great job! :) Report abuse beautifulspirit said... Jun. 17, 2013 at 12:03 pm: So simple and so true. The last line was my favorite~ Report abuse Krasota said... Jun. 13, 2013 at 4:26 pm: I love your daring-ness, the pure sauciness, the pure I-don't-care-what-you-think-this-is-my-writing. I love your idea behind this, what you stand for in writing this piece, and proud feeling you put into your work. Keep on writing and never give up! :D Report abuse SaphiraBrightscales said... Jun. 13, 2013 at 3:00 am: Oh Liv, This poem in all its simplicity is one of the most potent poems I've ever read. One we should all read whenever we are in doubt as to the reason. Because this is the reason and this is the goal. And this is the everything. I love this poem Liv. And read those poems you asked me to read...long time...But I was so overwhelmed and my heart was crying so I couldn't really muster the courage to actually comment but I'll go and do that now. :D Yours, Dua.

Jun. 12, 2013 at 2:23 pm: AMEN! This is why I write too. Sometimes, I get all worried that people won't like my work. That it's useless because no one will read it. But then, I remember why I write. It is for them. But it's mostly for me. To heal and open up. I love this haiku, Liv. Even if no one appreciate our work now, we're always writers at heart. And that's what counts in the end. There's always someone out there who appreciate the work you create.
