This is really good! I once read a quote online (sorry I don't know who by) that read "I read to escape, I write to confront". I think that is so true. And keep writing, you have a gift and if you're passionate about something, you should never stop!

YES!! I AGREE this was really good. I believe that writing should be  a gateway to expression and creativity. Of course everyone enjoys learning that other people like their writing, but I think it should also be personal and moving. Great job with the haiku. I LOVED IT! Check out some of my work if you'd like. THANKS. :)

I love this Haiku. It is one of the best I've ever read. I understand what you are saying and I feel just as you do. More teen writers need to share this theme and stick with it.  Great work

there are so many posts here that i doubt mine will change anything but i wanted to tell you how much this poem took what i felt and turned those feelings into words.  i have always written stories to leave my mark, i read alot and i want to give something back.  You expressed those feelings so beutifully.

Amazing work!!
