I wrote this poem for a contest, I thought I would share it with you. :)
This poem is about the hard times we all face in our lives.


The darkness is settling
I feel the coldness enveloping
My heart is beating stronger
my whole body starts to shiver


I don't want to open my eyes
It is where the truth lies
I know my heart needs repair
but i can only look blankly with despair


I struggle and scream
Hoping it's just a bad dream
My body is filled with fear
I feel that the end is near


With every last breath
I am battling against death
I finally manage to open my eyes
It is filled with the beauty of the sunrise


Tonight, will be another fight
I will become stronger at every sight
Life, everyday I will cherish
Until the day that I perish

This is really good, beautiful even. I can really feel the emotion being portrayed here. However, with every positive aspect comes a negative one. Well not necessarily negative but, per say, constructive criticism. Anywho, for future poems, if you start off without rhyme, finish wiithout it. Some poems go good with rhyme. In my opinion, I felt this poem could benefit more w/o the rhyme. It throws it off a bit. Don't get me wrong, I like it!(:

It's just one girl's opinion.
P.s thanks for your kind words about my own poem!(: I greatly appreciate it!
