Review My Poetry / Re: A Silly Old Soul Like Mine
« Last post by Mark T on February 23, 2021, 04:44:31 PM »
You are messing with the syntactical relationship in your lines in order to force rhymes.
It's not necessary - all it does is distract from the content. Poetic elements should be subtle and balanced to create an overall effect. With modern poetry you can weave these elements in as they occur naturally without having to adhere to a strict format. One has great freedom of expression that is not available with form poetry. Go and have a look at the requirements of writing a sonnet in iambic pentameter and you will be grateful for the concept of free verse.

Golly, that has to be the best review/worst poem association I've ever seen.

Alone

I entered this world alone
It was my joy and tears
It was my heartbreak alone
that changed the direction
of my life...

I will leave this world
alone taking nothing worldly
with me...

I alone, because of my free will,
have control of my destiny.

Wise is one who can
recognize loneliness from
being alone.

Gather close to your heart
loved ones, knowing they
too, make the journey
that will, with time, take
them home.

Accept unchangeable things
- strive always
to overcome the worldly
that seeks to destroy your
soul...

If I must walk alone
let it be with faith
as my shield of hope,
my comforter and my
peace.

"Pop in"....Whether or not you like it, I am a MWC member..... Free to pop in or out as I please. I haven't ignored you :o but if you would like me to ,I will.  ;D That wouldn't be a problem at all. It's easy for me to ignore people who hide behind 'fake' names. I assume they aren't  proud of their  name....or, they have something to hide. Which one is it? ???

 

Don't pull this on me.

Beautiful

Beauty is in the eyes
of the beholder,
It was first said
many years ago.

But when life
takes its toll
the eyes don't see
as clear the beauty,
in the world or
the beauty of ones soul.

The years mar the
memory of man.
Nothing can fade the
Beauty God created
in man's soul.

Yet, not all have
the ears to understand
what the eyes cannot see,
and lose sight of the beauty
behind each heartbeat.

There is no cyber bar. There is no one who really comes here anymore. You only pop in sometimes. I just come here in and look. Why do you ignore that I'm trying to tell you? It's so annoying.

Here we go again....   ::) Do you have nothing else to do, besides visit a cyber bar you claim is not here ???  Where is the logic in that ???
