In The Wrong World

Rating: 4.5

I have been here
Too long
Trapped in the wrong world
For so many terrible years

It has kept me prisoner
For what seems an eternity
Brought here by accident
I left everything behind

I gave my heart to so few

The heart ache in this piece is the emulating factor. It divides the reader in two and causes one to become introspective and humble. This is my favorite piece you've posted for numerous reasons. The first reason being the tempo and meter in the piece. The tempo is rather simplistic allowing the reader to fully engage you as the writer. Because of this simplicity the depth of your words are made manifest and fully felt. How awful it is to be put on this earth when it all seems so wrong. Why? What? is the common question asked in the piece. I imagine a poor woman in the ghetto writing this letter as her life will. She's had it rough, more than rough, and it actually feels insanely trapped by the world of life, love, and experience. Truly a wonderful piece.

Someone engulfed in pain and disappointment. This is identifiable with those who are poets'. Basically. An idealistic mind choosing the artform of poetic expression to unwind. This is captured so well. One with 'talent' knows just how to introduce emotion. And set the scene. 'In the Wrong World' is a great poem. The use of 'and' is where the 'an' should be, But the content and 'flavor' is delivered nicely.

Hi Emma - Your poem is a very interesting comment on your (relatively short) life and perhaps life in general. It is well structured with good content I score it a MAX (TEN) . We can't choose or the date and place of our birth - it's all down to chance -or is it? The Good Book tells us each individual Human Being is 'Born with a Purpose'. What you are is GOD's gift to you - what you make of your life is YOUR gift to GOD. I was born in 1933 - the start of the Third Reich - During 1939 - 1945 we lived through Hell. Our Fathers left us for five years to fight overseas and our beautiful City (Liverpool) was bombed to oblivion and several of my friends died. However in many respects I don't regret when - where - how I was born and through it all I can see Beauty - Purpose - Order - Design making me what I am today. Living in America has many advantages and Venus is much too hot for comfort and Mars is much too cold. The Moon has no McDonalds (yet) . Verses ONE to THREE get progressively more pessimistic. 'Trapped in the wrong World' 'Brought here by accident' 'Heart ripped out - Taken from all I knew and loved'. Don't feel isolated Emma - many people living on this blessed Planet feel the same! . Verse FOUR gives us a picture of dispair and then a glimmer of hope'. 'This is not the story written for me - This is not how it was suposed to play out - But perhaps it will help me avoid a greater tragedy'. As you say Emma experience does help us to survive. Love you in Poetry - JOHN
