That was very beautiful. A sentiment shared by most of us who like to write. As Roald Dahl said, 'authors let their books out into the world, like ships onto the sea'

This poem is short but totally sums up how many of us feel! We're all trying to express ourselves and leave our mark somehow!

This peice is beautiful. Not because you used fancy elaborate words but because there is so much truth in it. I mean, for almost all of us here at this website writing is up there with oxygen, it's how we express ourselves and your completely right, that is what we are all striving for. Thank you for writing this. (:

wonderful!i love it. so simple and to the point, but yet, it paints a picture in your head that express so many words in your head, it's like a bird flying through the air and it brings color into the sky. I loved the poem!

Yes! I have a haiku I would like to submit but it is not 100 characters in length! Would someone please tell me how to submit it? It apparently can be done- there are a lot of short haikus on this website!
