I realy liked the use of childhood rhymes. This is a very guttsy piece. Alot of power in it. Life can be cruel, and the mirror immage weather a physical one or an inward reflection, can be equaly disturbing. Good work!!
This piece really struck me as something that was meant to be read aloud or even performed. The flow in each stanza is beautiful, and the words all hold such profound meaning for the reader and for the poet. The last line intrugued me, as did the introduction. To me, it was like you were setting up the reader to believe that they were going to read some borring cliché-ridden teenage-angsty poem and then totally went off in the opposite direction, leaving the reader breathless and wanting more. I like this, even though it isn't usually my style. Excellent job
This is an extremely powerful piece You woke up some eyes as to how dreadful life is with not only this disiease but also how hard it is for someone to have to regroup from years of abuse by being told how imperfect they are You did a fantastic job with this God Bless Ron
HIde the spoons, HA! Many different ways that line can be taken. Good job in ending it that way.
I think I used to have this disorder. But then I looked into getting penal implants and said, "SCREW THAT! Its too expensive!" Hee-hee! Just being a dork.
It is too bad that people obsess about the way they look and too bad that our society pushes that through the media. I mean...the "bowflex" they built five years ago apparently isnt good enough anymore...now you need the new and improved bowflex...otherwise people will laugh at you. Just little stuff like that.
Insightful lil write you got here. Thanks for sharing and remember...its o.k. to laugh at the mirror too.
