you flourish much more at the darker side of poetry, my dear... i read 'optimistic', and it just doesn't have that awesome Abby ring to it. very poignant ending to this. I might consider revising the 'I am dead inside' line- horribly overused. i absolutely love the last two lines. brilliant. and true. *md*
WOW! (though im completely sure i just read an untitled optimist piece from you) i love this! i mean like really... i cannot tell you a fave line coz theyre all damn brilliant! i loved the boys are rewarded for being boys but girls are disowned... too true! inhuman is all we can trust coz ppl can only feel... god... your bl00dy brilliant! like seriously... worship you! love does not exist greed is the driving force no one is ever selfless... (haha would you look at me... i ended up quoting the whole poem almost... lol!) but ooo... so true... well its true for me today anyways... hopefully it wont always be true else what the hell is the point (and that my friends would be why this write is called Pessimistic... haha! drum roll please!) right... this must be THE most crap comment ever (if the guidelines have anything to do with anything...) so i apologize for that but PLEASE believe me when i say that i love this write!
that third part is really deep and true, made me think of a few girls i know. I think love exists though, I think a lot of people don't know what it is or settle for something less and try to call it love. keep up with this stuff, this soul searching, it's good stuff;)
