Some Days and Some Nights

by Brittany Ottmo   Dec 19, 2014


Some days I wish I was prettier
Some days I wish I was smart
Some days I wish I was skinnier
Some days I even wish I had a stronger heart.

Some nights I wish I could sleep
Some nights I wish I could dance
Some nights I wish I could sing
Some nights I even wish I had another chance.

Some days I cant look into the mirror
Some days I can't see my feet
Some days I can't stand my body
Some days I can't even take a seat.

Some nights I have these nightmares
Some nights I have no dreams
Some nights I lay wide awake
Some nights my head is full of screams.

Some days I feel like laying down and crying
Some days I feel like dying
Some days I feel the wind knocked out of me
Some days I feel like not even trying.

But there are some days
Where life ain't to bad
So I focus on them days
And then I don't feel so bad.

    I think there is no human-being who cannot relate to this poem. I personally did not find any problem with your repetition. My only problem was that your last 4 lines verse was weaker than the rest of the poem, structure wise.

    The poem speaks of your state and my state and other people's state day and night..Sometimes we feel insecure about ourselves or about anything else related to us. We all have these moments.

    Other than that I just believe you do need to edit your "to" into "too", regarding :

    I really really like the concept of this poem but the repetition was kinda distracting after a few lines... though this could be my own personal distraction/disliking. I think you did a nice job of making each line something so many people can understand at some point in their life if not at all times (though it is sad that the world has come to that). My favorite stanza by far is the ending, you not only wrapped everything up and show a change of heart but you sort of give all those people who relate a reminder of the hope thats out there too.
