Kind of a rant towards people who don't give constructive criticism. Not every poem you read is good, and none of them are perfect. Why not correct someone once in a while?

Appreciate my words.
My vision of this.
Tell me I'm brilliant
When I am only average,
This will solve
Everything--
Am I right?
Am I right?

...But what if I'm wrong?

Someone speak.
Criticize me, Captain.
Don't praise my words,
Help me fix them.
If praise doesn't fit,
Form solid opinions.
Help me grow,
Water this poetic seed
Until I flourish with multicoloured blooms.

Spark my interest,
I'll set you on fire.
Nurture my flame,
We'll set the whole town ablaze.
Listen to your Captain,
Light your cannons...  Viva revolution!!
