" I've sought out to be the best i could posibly be but when i hit a roadblock in life what did i do, i had two choices either stay at the roadblock or i take this roadblock and make of it and go around it and achieve my goal. So, what will it be?"- Daniel Mathia

"People take love like its a four letter word or just a phrase that you tell people or your friends all the time. But in reality love is much bigger than a merely phrase or 4 letter word. Instead love is a genuine promise or covenant to that special person."-Daniel Mathia

Excuse me
I’ve got something to say
And when I’m done
I Promise you
You’ll be happy that you stayed

This is just a little something
I wrote only for you
And we’ve been friends for so long now
It’s time that I tell you this

Before I’ll even tell you this
It’ll be over, said and done
So why don’t we seize the moment; freeze it and own it.
Why don’t we begin?

That's a really good start for a first poem. I can tell you're an advanced writer. I like your diction a lot; it made the character of the poem. Nice job. That's impressive for a first try!

For a first poem it's got a lot going for it! It may be short which disappoints me a bit because you had many opening for expansion, a few more stanzas, etc. But I like the idea of having to tell someone something, a sort of long-overdue confession. And the last stanza about freezing time and beginning made the poem stand out in my eyes because it made you wonder, what was it you wanted to say and why savor the moment? Sounded a little lovey-dovey to me but that's just my guess ;) Keep writing!

i read the poem two times over, and got a little dissapointed there was nothing you said at all :P but the poem's good, and simple enough, nice effort for the first, though the last line, "why dont we begin?" felt a bit vague. but keep writing!

This is great for your first poem, short but sweet. I think you could do really well if you kept writing more, I mean this poem already is very good!

I think it's a really good poem, especially since it was your first one. I'd be glad to read more of your poems if they're ever written lol. Keep writing :))))))
