    dotsBlow out your Candlesdots

    Today's the day,
    I'm growing old and up.
    I shedding another year away.
    Hold my hair as i up chuck.

    If i shed the past year,
    It dosen't mean it's gone.
    If i shed anther ter,
    It doesn't mean i'm done.

    So blow out your candles,
    there goes my youth
    there goes my life
    my childhood.

    If i shed my last year
    Will i still be the same?
    If my wet cheeks smear
    Will i forever hold this shame?

    There goes who i was,
    She's lying on the floor.
    I'll do what everyone does.
    I'll grow up to be somthing more.

    Good-bye my young self.
    I'll leave you in the picture book on the shelf.
    And walk into my new life
    if only i could grow out of all this strife.

      T_T that's so sad, I miss you so much, and the worst part is, only close friends and people who truly know you will even understand this.
    (love you like a sister)
    <3 forever

      This was okay. On a scale from one to ten I would rate it about a 5 1/2.

    Likes: I like the topic.
    It is easy to relate to.

    Dislikes: The rhyming throws the flow off.
    Like Alyra said sometimes you rhyme and sometimes you don't.
    When you do it seems forced in some areas.
    Ex: the last stanza

    Sorry that the dislikes over-run the likes. If you revise this let me know. :D

      i dunno.not quite up there..like u were holding back some sort of depreication or something.. i dunno.i didnt really like the 4th line..i think the F bomb wouldve been better for this is u could work it in a line but at the risk of sounding like im needy for obscenities i only suggest it as an alternate line because the flow on that one seems weird.

      This was good. Its missing some punctuation and has a few misspelled words, but thats nothing to cry over. The meaning was clear and I know I could relate. When I "celebrated" my birthday a couple months ago I felt the same way. The birthday that really made me feel that way was my 16th though. You really do feel like you have changed into a completely different person after your middle school years are over. I suppose you do hehe. It isn't fair to assume that all humans should give up the child in them when they get to a certain age. I think later tonight I will go play in the sprinklers lol. I hope you keep writing, you did wonderful on this one. Keep the child inside you alive!

      this is pretty good. i kno what u mean about having to leave part of yourself behind and having to move on and grow up. in all i think it was a really good poem. one thing that kind of got to me was your inconsistant rhyme. sometimes it was there, sometimes it wasnt. but that may have been what u wanted. anyway, good write and keep it up.
