       I really would like some feed back pleeze >_<

    this was a long time ago, but I still think it's cute....

    dotsI Failed But it's Okaydots

    What if life had took a turn
    and you thought you were going to jail?
    I'd figure you'd have a lot to learn
    because you tried when you were doomed to fail

    but we all fail at times
    it just something you can't avoid
    for one thing its hard to make rhyme
    I find myself annoyed

    maybe my poems don't make sense
    and I know that for most that's true
    but I try not to be so intense
    but I'm not even sure if that's what I do

    the first stanza of this note
    confuses me so
    I'm looking over what I wrote
    and I think I lost my "flow"

    I believe I found what I was trying to say
    and this is where it ends
    I failed at writing a good poem today
    and I'm glad I could tell my friends

      Oh man this one had me laughing! I love the self examination and reflection of your first stanza. I also enjoy the fact that you're comfortable enough with your own style to write a piece like this. It's fun and ditsy :) failure is all in perspective and you got a good one by the looks of it.

      I think that "flow" concept is a trick used by English teachers who haven't studied poetry but have to teach some. Beats me what it means.

    "I failed but it's OK" is such a good thing to write about!

    You can tell a real poet because sometimes they write a poem about writing poems!

    abac gets boring, even though a ballad to sing has to have each stanza the same. But not for singing, in this 4-line format there is abab, abba, abca, abcb, yaddayadda available for more complicated structures. Well anyway, I find it boring when a simple rhyme-scheme is repeated simply. In songs, there is the refrain (chorus) to give needed variety; but in literary verse you got more options if you want them.

      Very light-hearted :) It's also pretty original.

    Be kind, take a few minutes to review the hard work of others <3
    It means a lot to them, as it does to you.
