Rating: 2.1

Look, everyone from birth to death, yeah? is
tryin' to express somethin', right? , that
goes beyond
what they've expressed before, OK? so
what we need isn't a ton of crit-shit, yeah? but
a little help and advice would be appreciated... right?

an' we don't ask for praise, OK? although
it's always nice, yeah? but
a little encouragement would be appreciated... right?

lil' bit hesistant here to comment on your works, sir, in fact, I was reading your poems from time to time and trying to study and relate on some. This poem was kinda comical with bits of sarcasm, a light poem indeed, yeah free-verse, ok? yeah? right...oh yeah. Hope all the critics in poetic world will treat their co-poets/writers with all fairness, honesty and constructive critisms to further enhance their crafts. So far, I received good feedbacks and especially your kind appreciation on my mails. Again, loads of thanks, sir.....

I like this one. We should never be criticized for expressing ourselves. Excellent job.

Made me smile. You who are so full of beautiful language took on a completely different character, and it worked! And again, you said a lot without really saying it...a lesson all of us could remember well. Raynette
