Keep going. Keep Living

by Cynder

I know it's hard,

I know it's hard!

Everything is just too much!

The Stress of it all just piles.. and piles up!

Listen my darling

Listen my sister.. my brother...

I can't.

I can't!!

Shh.. child

It'll be over soon.

Okay, okay

Over soon..

There you areĀ 

You are strong

I hope and hope and..

fall deep and low.

Let me help...


No one can help me

Shut them out!

Don't do what I have done

Don't repeat my mistakes

How do I cope?

How can you say that like Life isn't this.. this!?

I was a teen once, too.

Keep fighting...!

-My invisible friend-

Wow, inspiring, i should say? this is very different sorta writing, but, no wonder it's good.

But, one thing, I'd love to know, what's the poem exactly about? i read it and my mind's saying, it's a strengthening one. but, would you mind telling me, what was your thought?

It's writing style is unique. and these lines,

"I was a teen once, too.
Keep fighting
-my invisible friend-
Another truth."

these lines wonderfully created. and after all, it is a nice one.
hope, my review doesn't irritate you much..

God bless you.

Cynder says...

Thank you so much. I'm glad that so many people get to critique my writing, it is such a great help to me. Your review helps a lot actually. It is lonliness speaking with hope in a form anyone could recognize-a teen. Everybody goes through that stage and that is what I have written about.

Hey there! AlexSushiDog here to review your poem!

I think the main attribute in this poem that really stands out is the structure of it: the conversation like style and the way it looks gives it a very creative and fresh feel to it. It feels very real like I am inside this person's head while they are talking to themselves. I loved that!

I love the message of the poem: "Keep going". A very true message too which you explained well in this poem!

In my opinion there is one thing you could do to improve and that is to add more punctuation for a more dramatic and echo-y effect.
For example:

I can't

I can't

Turns into:
I can't...

I can't!!

Another example is:
Shh child

It'll be over soon

Could be:
Shh! child,

It'll be over soon!

In my opinion the second of both examples sounded and felt better. Of course though this is your poem and therefore your choice!
Overall a lovely poem! Really liked it! :3

I love the way this poem is structured. It's a very simple format, but still manages to convey what you want it to--that is, that two people are having a conversation. This poem is (as someone said below) "raw", and that makes it ten times better. Great work, Cynder!

I relate to this poem in many ways. I really like the structure. The message is true and I love the spirit. Deep, personal, and raw. I can tell you have the experience of real emotion, because it shows through this work.

Thank you. I'm glad to see it conveyed well.
