My thoughts: Don't post just a link, post a description too.
Sometimes the appropriate response to reality is to go insane. - Philip K. Dick
The good thing about science is that it’s true whether or not you believe in it. - Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn’t go away. - Philip K. Dick
It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring. - Carl Sagan
Don't believe everything you read on the Internet - Abraham Lincoln

Doesn't matter now anyway. I needed some help with a reflection piece. Handed it in :)

so you don't really care about our thoughts, you just wanted us to do your homework for you?

nothing wrong with asking for homework help, but at least say it's homework in the topic

It wasn't homework, it was an in-class reflection on the poem. I just wanted to know what people thought about it. Sorry if I have posted incorrectly.

sorry i came off a little harsher than i meant to. i just meant to say that it annoys me when people post schoolwork but don't say it's schoolwork, pretending it's something they're genuinely interested in.

Poetry is only interesting to me if it rhymes :P

you're 16 dude,
and I agree poetry that doesn't rhyme is pretty lame.

Agreed on the non-rhyming part. Maybe it's just me but I don't take all these deep philosophical meanings from poems that other people seem to.

It doesn't matter whether poetry rhymes or not, just whether it has a meaning.

It does matter to some. Poetry is a form of expression to some and a form of entertainment to others. Poetry where people try to convey some deep meaning in their life or in the universe is boring to me. Where the Sidewalk Ends is the kind of poetry for me.

Ok, I agree that rhyme does sometimes help with the entertainment side of poetry, although you can still write good poetry without rhyme.

rhyming++

Although, I've always had problems with comprehending things from poems if they aren't fairly obvious. English isn't exactly my strongest subject
