Omigosh, we must be kindred spirits or something because that is EXACTLY how I feel.  It's amazing to see my own inner thoughts written there, on the screen, and know that they weren't written by me but by somebody else, who evidently has enormous talent (just so you know).  Five stars!

I like this poem because I want to become a writer some day, and I feel the same way.

I love how you write that the world has a collection of the great works of our history and that your goal is to get into it.  That really speaks to me.  You would love to have your work remembered and shared in generations to come.  Great way of expressing it!

This is amazing. I remember reading it in the magazine and thinking, this girl can really write. It takes a gifted writer to make people feel so much in such a little poem. Keep up the great work! Its so good!

I thought this poem was very good.  The first line really shows initiative and the imagery was great.  I thought the last two lines were the best because you implied that the world has a story of its own and you want to have a part of that story
