Hello, here for a review even though it’s been quite sometime your poem got out.
So umm, your poem is short. Very short actually. You’ve got absolutely no imagery, two rhymes in a AABB style; but the rhythm is pretty good. So what makes your poem nice? It’s really because of how you end. “Life is shit/ and you’re a part of it” a nice little- not a twist- more like a sharper end for such a slow and almost light hearted beginning. Kinda sad. Kinda mad as well tho. The way there is so little of anything in your poem really conveys this sense of sadness/ anger. Now I’m probably wrong, but the poem seems to make more sense to me if the guy (or girl) you say is part of this shitty world- was someone you loved.
Well maybe I’m just overthinking, but it seems to make sense. At least, if that person is someone close to you.
I don’t really get why you rated the work 16+, because umm, apart for word 11 (can’t say what it is or else I’ll be censored) there really isn’t anything you could rate 16+.
I scrolled down to the other reviews, and; excuse me if in got something wrong but.. in what way is it funny??! In what way would this poem make a good bumper sticker or a tattoo. This is a poem, not a quote!
I also disagree with those saying your poem should be longer. If it’s had been longer, you’d have gone into exposition and into imagery and into description/ but four short line, four short rhymes with AABB sequences- no, I think your poem is perfect the way it is. Maybe too stark to be a fan favorite, but just as good as any other poems that stick to your mind.

Helloooo, saint1y here to review your work.

I quickly scanned through the comments below and half of them are very negative.
I personally found this amusing and entertaining. As someone said before, I do find myself wishing it was a little longer. But i like the way it rhymed and the rhythm of it is really good. I think this would be a good ending to a longer poem, but apart from that. I like it!

I'll try my best to review this.

From my first look its nothing special, just a short fact that you see as truth. I dont find much from reading this because of its short length and lack of info. The message is straight forward which is good but I think there should be more to this.

Hello! This might not be Green Room (which I usually review) but I noticed that the reviews below are either completely negative and completely positive, which provides no help whatsoever (sorry, guys). I'm here to review your short piece to help you with it even more!

Just because it's short doesn't mean it's bad or that it needs to be turned into a haiku! One of my favorite poems - Buffalo Bill's by E.E. Cummings - is very short but it still holds lots of meaning. Yeah, it's a little longer than yours, and yeah, Cummings was a professional poetist, but that doesn't mean that yours is worse or less meaningful than his. It all depends on the reader. Don't be discouraged about the negative reviews below.

Also, swear as much as you want in poetry. If you take a look at a lot of my old poetry (I was going to just say poetry, but I'm not nearly as active on here as I used to be) I used swears left and right. That doesn't mean that I'm not using - what did the review say again? - no rhyme, no heart, no emotion, and no tone. It just means that I'm expressing anger through swearing.

Well, I didn't have rhyme, since I wrote strictly lyrical poems, but you get the point.

(and don't let anyone tell you that it's too short! you can have a poem as long or as short as you want, okay?)

My big suggestion is, drum roll please, formatting! you can make your poem a lot more interesting through formatting. Instead of the generic four lines rhyming, maybe have one of them (the lines, i mean) on the right, or change the color, the font, something. a little formatting can go a long way. another example is capitalization and the use of punctuation. you can go no caps (like i'm currently doing right now, f) or full caps to convey emotion. Sadness and anger respectively.

It's all about the aesthetic (formatting helps with this), tone, and the theme/lyrics in poetry. It's not about telling a story, most of the time, like in prose. Instead, you're expressing something, and that's much different. Try to focus on what you want to say. Life is sh*t? So be it. If you're conveying that, then focus your formatting and your words around it. Maybe italicize "sh*t", or have no capitalization to show that you're disappointed in how life sucks.

(you're not allowed to swear in reviews. I very much would have liked to, but I can't, lol)

Keep in mind that these are suggestions, and in no way are you forced to follow my advice. In no way are you forced to follow their advice, either. Stay positive and stay strong, and continue to write!

Auf Wiedersehen~!

Hello I'm demoncat here to review.

Now this poem is really funny. And very straight to the point. Although I find myself wishing it was longer. I like how it rhymed. This looks to me like it would make a cut bumper sticker. Or a button. Ooh or a tattoo. Have you told the bumper sticker and t-shirt people of you awesome poem?? I did love it. But it is very short. I hope you continue writing. Because I would like to see more poems from you.

Life is shit

And you're a part of it[b] You should change this ending into something more in lines with the rest of the poem. Reason being it's hard to be a part of shit, it's not normal phrasing. Maybe you're a piece of it?

This poem is very short, making it difficult to review. Have you considered transforming it into a haiku? It could gain some much needed satisfaction because it won't be so out there and vague anymore. It would be a haiku.

You're going to go through tough times - that's life. But I say, "Nothing happens to you, it happens for you." See the positive in negative events.
