|Hi Moonbeans, my name is Tina. I've been on WDC, Writing.Com for a few years and want to take an opportunity to say hi and to let you know that we are thankful you are part of the Writing Community. When I first read your poem the first the thing I liked is metaphors. You have a way of expressing poetry with your senses of vision. You can emphasis this and that same way you did with your last sentence " Hope of what is to come is better in the walk of life." Your capable of highlighting you inner thoughts and bringing it to life when you wrote "Reflections of what was and not able to the future". Suggestion, go back and revise you second line not sure where I am or what I am at like the mirrors of life. The last part of the words in the sentence needs to be eliminated. A gift of poetry is that you wrote it.
More insights and tips for future poems,
a. You have several senses. Touch, smell, taste, write all of it in each poetry you write.
b. Metaphors. There great when you write poetry. Her lips remained cold as the midnight velvet skies leaving her alone for the rest of her lonely days.
c. Dictionary is good to cruise for words to add in.
Thank you for sharing you poem and it was a great honor to read.
d. Finally recheck, make sure there is no errors.
