It bored me.
great! Cos I didnt write it, lol.
That doesn't surprise me
gave it a 3. I just think it was a bit too over the place. Try to focus more on the main message you want to put across. I had to drag through the poem. And I prefer poems that rhyme but then that's my taste and you have your own so..as long as you like it then you shouldn't worry about what other people think about it
What was the point of this post then?
But a lot of the great things about modern poetry is that it breaks conventions. Grace Nichols is a really good modern poet and she seems to totally ignore the 'rules' of poetry, and it works well! Other poets such as Stevie Smith and even Sylvia Plath do it too. For something TOTALLY different look at Ian Hamilton Finlay and Edwin Morgan.
I think that whilst there are benefits from reading poetry closely, there is the tendency to turn it into a science, and I always believed that wasn't what poetry was about. I think poetry loses its appeal when you do that!
Rules and styles change so fast, I think it's nice to just ignore that and go for something that suits you!
Personally though, I do agree that this poem sounded a lot like prose put into verse. Although it was a nice poem. Well done.
Haha, of course I was the one that structured it, but theyre not my words, lol.
im very modest but i myself do v good poetry
