    Oh, and by the way, Rock n' Roll is way, way, way, way, way, way better than your stupid Gospel. Ew, I even hate typing it! Go Cali! (Report) Reply

    Listen, sweetie, I live in Knoxville myself and it's not that perfect. I'd rather be in California with my father, who was born there. But, he made a huge mistake and moved to Tennessee. Now he's stuck here and I'm trying to get my family out of this place full of dumb drunks, idiots who think the black smoke coming out of the back of their truck is cool and attractive, and stupid people with that crappy Southern accent. I am a poet, author and an artist and I am desperately trying to get a writing career and hopefully an acting career. And who doesn't love beaches and Leonardo DiCaprio? Obviously you don't. What a waste of talent. Anybody who's anybody loves Cali. (Report) Reply

    Consider that the author of this poem wasn't as miserable as you are. I'm sorry that you are in a hard place, but anywhere has its up sides. Even Tennessee!

    just because you don't like it dose not mean your right, you are probably just a snotty little teenage girl who knows nothing about where she lives

    If you're such an artist, why are you so narrow minded? Learn to respect diversity.

    enjoyed this piece, words of purity, see yourself there, feel the breeze and warmth, the cold ice cream on your tongue..... (Report) Reply

    It's nice when the feeling and emotion are invoked, effortlessly. You don't even have to close your eyes, you're just there. (Report) Reply

    If this poem is so 'good' how come no one comments on it? All the hits have been over a short time period. Hmmmm. (Report) Reply

    I think you've captured the ''American Dream''...land of milk and honey...does this world still exist in the 'ol US of A? Nice feelings...for a minute, I really believed I was there. Good Poem. (Report) Reply
