Review of Fearing Destiny

The road of life can be bumpy and confusing but I agree that you need to push your way down that road and not be afraid of what's to come. Not every challenge that meets us in life is going to be positive and not everyone will have a positive out come but we have to expect these challenges and use them to our advantage to help us build character and to become resilient to life's adversities.

Thank you for sharing your work.

This is a nice inspirational poem about not letting life get you down. I enjoyed reading it. It brought a smile to my face when I thought if the adversity I have been through in my life and what I do to get over the hurdles every day.

I feel that this poem is about the author's desire to be able to write his life in a way that he is able to change it. It's about his desire to go back in time and to change anything that he considers a mistake. I agree with the sentiment of this poem but I don't know that I agree with the desire to change the past. All our past actions and experiences are what have shaped us into the people what we are today. To go into the past and change that would change who I am and I'm not sure that's something that I would want. For better or for worse. I enjoyed reading your poem. It's nice to read something that makes me think.

Thank you for sharing your work.

This is a lovely song. I enjoyed reading it. It painted a picture in my mind and stored emotion in me as well. I did notice a couple possible typos. In the second verse

I see you face, as soft as lace
Maybe should be I see your face, as soft as lace.

The fifth verse

close my eyes and hear your sights
Maybe should be close my eyes and hear your sighs.

Thank you for sharing your work.

This is definitly an emotionally charged piece. I can feel the hurt in your writing. The image this poem creates for me is a darker one. One of sadness and almost one of regret. Nothing lasts forever and even bad situations have a way of working themselves out. Not always for the best but it’s important to remember that today’s tragedies are tomorrow’s memories. Nothing more.

Thank you for sharing your work.

Review of Seasons Change

I liked the rhythm of this poem. The rhyme scheme was enjoyable. I enjoyed reading it and it did a good job at creating a mental image I could work with. Every season does have its proper place and I too can find something enjoyable in each one. Warm lazy summer days, cool crisp autumn nights. Fresh fallen snow in the winter or the smell of spring. Each it’s own wonder.

Thank you for sharing your work.

Review of Taking a Chance

I agree with the overall sentiment in this poem. It is better to take a chance at achieving something you want to achieve than tonsitnon the sidelines and wonder “what if”. It’s better to have tried and not succeeded. I’ve read that not succeeding isn’t failure until you stop trying. Until then it’s just experience.

Hi. I’m CJ and I’m reviewing your work in association with the Newbies + Poetry Group.

WHY I CHOSE THIS PIECE:I chose this piece from the read a newbie section. The title caught my attention.

WHAT I LIKED ABOUT IT:I liked the rhyme scheme and the story the poem told. It introduced us to the character, and had us knowing who he was and what he was like almost right away. I had a picture of him in my head through the whole poem. The writing was done well too because I more saw the story unfolding than read it. Yes I have definitely been there before.

HOW THIS PIECE MADE ME FEEL:This poem Made me feel sorry for the author. *Smile* . For me it was a friend but it's tough to be put in the situation where nothing but a "It would be my pleasure" is the right thing to say.

OVERALL IMPRESSION:Overall I liked your poem. It had a nice flow and rhythm. If I were to change anything, the line "It's all been rather a source of stress" feels short compared to the rest of the poem. That's just my opinion though. It doesn't take away from the read at all. Great job.

Hi. I’m CJ and I’m reviewing your work in association with the Newbies + Poetry Group.

WHY I CHOSE THIS PIECE:I chose your poem from the read a newbie section. The title is what caught my interest

WHAT I LIKED ABOUT IT:I liked the flow of this poem. It was very smooth and easy to read. I got from start to finish with very little effort and the poem painted a very clear mental image for me. I almost felt as if I was in the antique shop looking at things. It is a very unique but true look at these types of places.

HOW THIS PIECE MADE ME FEEL:This poem made me feel like I was at the location with the author. It reminded me of times I've gone browsing through antique shops.

OVERALL IMPRESSION:Overall this poem was well written. There was little to trip me up and the words flowed well and carried me through the poem from start to finish. The imagery was good and I was able to visit the location in my mind. Good Job.

Review of Creepy Christmas?  
Review by CJ
In affiliation with Newbies + Poetry Group  
Rated: 18+ | (4.5)
For the reviewing section of the Newbies + Poetry Group


Hi. I’m CJ and I’m reviewing your work in association with the Newbies + Poetry Group.

WHY I CHOSE THIS PIECE:The reason I chose to read this piece was the picture associated with it. I was quick scrolling through and I had a "What the..." moment and went back. Mixed with the title, I had to open it.

WHAT I LIKED ABOUT IT:First off, let me say that Christmas is not my thing. I hate the commercialization of what is supposed to be an incredibly sacred and special day to Christianity. This isn't about me though. But, since I feel that way, I share the feelings expressed in this piece. Specially the last point. I really hate that song too.

HOW THIS PIECE MADE ME FEEL:This piece made me smile. It was written well and in a way that I found to be humorous. It spoke to me on a level I understood and didn't use big, obnoxious words to explain simple things. I also learned something. I never knew about Christmas demons before. Maybe they should employ those at the malls too? Just to lurk in the shadows behind Santa's thrown. You know, to keep the kids honest.

OVERALL IMPRESSION:Overall I thought this piece was well written and had the effect it was supposed to. It hooked me in, got me reading and rewarded me with humor, and knowledge. Great job.

WHAT I LIKED ABOUT IT:I liked the way you conveyed the message in your poem. I liked the way you told the story and guided me from start to finish though it.

HOW THIS PIECE MADE ME FEEL:Your poem touched me emotionally because I feel the same why a lot of times. Best down by society. I could sit here and tell you to fight back but that doesn’t Work. Not if you aren’t willing to confirm. Society will beat you every time. What you need to do is figure out a way to live for you. To shut all the crap out and love whonyou are and what you do. Then, nothing can touch you. Nothing can bring you down.

Loving yourself is one of the most important things a person can learn to do. If you love yourself it doesn't matter what others say or do. Their lack of respect or cruel acts can't cause you pain if you already know who you are on the inside. Your poem had made me feel a bit of confidence tonight. Thank you.

Hi. I’m CJ and I’m reviewing your work in association with the Newbies + Poetry Group.

WHY I CHOSE THIS PIECE:I chose this piece to review because it is the last one I read in your portfolio. I will try to get to them all.

WHAT I LIKED ABOUT IT:I really liked this poem. It is how depression makes me feel a lot of the time too. I feel pain that I want to go away but I don't want to put it on anyone else so I suffer alone. It is a horrible thing, depression. It's a faceless, unrelenting monster that stays with you always, if one form or another.

HOW THIS PIECE MADE ME FEEL:Surprisingly this piece lifted my spirits. I guess it's because you hit the nail on the head so to speak and your writing spoke to me.

OVERALL IMPRESSION:I liked your poem. It stirred feelings in me, it made me think, and it was a smooth read. All put together this poem left me with no feeling of in-completion. It painted a good mental picture for me and touched me. Good job.

Hi. I’m CJ and I’m reviewing your work in association with the Newbies + Poetry Group.

WHY I CHOSE THIS PIECE:I chose this piece because I was encouraged to check your port on the newsfeed and this one caught my eye.

WHAT I LIKED ABOUT IT:what didn’t I like. Excellent rhyming, excellent meter. Just excellent. This poem read itself to me. I all I had to do was look at the first line and it took hold of my eyes and guided them through the piece. It also painted a vivid image in my mind that was very similar to the prompt image.

HOW THIS PIECE MADE ME FEEL:This poem played on a few different emotions for me. I felt sorry for the poor woman riding with the ferryman. I felt curiosity, what did she do to get there. And oddly enough, I felt calmness. The flow of the writing almost soothed me in the face of such eternally sad prospects.

OVERALL IMPRESSION:I loved your poem. Hands down, flat out. It’s a wonderful piece of writing worthy of any acclaim it’s sure to receive. Thank you for writing it.

Thank you for sharing your work. Keep writing. Feel free to stop by my Portfolio and read some of my work.

I could feel the struggle going on within you. It's hard to convince yourself that death isn't a better option. I've been there. The pros outweigh the cons, but, death will come sooner or later, so I've convinced myself to see what the world can bring. It has brought me peace. I hope that if this poem is a reflection of your inner struggle, you can peak your curiosity too.

I agree with this wholeheartedly. It is so important to face your fears. You will never get past them otherwise. Fear is such a strange thing. I can sit and rationalize with myself about how I shouldn't be afraid of the things I am afraid of and can convince myself not to be afraid but then as soon as I am facing my fear, all I want to do is be anywhere else.

Thank you for sharing your work.
