Great poem and my top pick for this week’s contest. Excellent rhyme and meter. What I really enjoyed was the way the rhyme flowed, nothing was forced this enabled the message to shine through without being distracted. The stanzas were concise and well constructed, once again emphasizing the message and emotion that you want to convey. Well done

Even though the repetition was a little but overused in this piece it manages to stand out among the others that have been nominated this week. The author has beautifully blended a great mixture of tones and textures in this piece. The flow is wonderfully smooth and the word choice is rough in just the right ways to express how this person feels about growing up and moving on from some darker days. There is a much more personal aspect of this piece than most of the others this week and I think that this one provides great contrast on both that front and the front of having a little more structure (or well done structure). For a fairly new poet to the site, Lyrical Madness has definitely gained fans from this piece.
