Poetry Critical 2.0

Hey guys, Donald here.

In a few weeks, this site will be 9 years old. 9 years! And I still know some of the earliest submissions by heart.

But, boy. That’s like 102 in web-years. So it’s time for something new. I’m building that something now with my nights-and-weekend minutes (and plenty of coffee). Buy me a cup?

Random Poem:

Boundaries
katiedid

In our lives, within our hands, we hold everything,
 1
yet know nothing.
 2
The most
 3
tortured
 4
   cared for
 5
       lovingly hated
 6
          experienced naive
 7
                       man
 8
knows but his home
 9
and nothing beyond those boundries.
 10
We as people have purpose...
 11
Not to god, not to the world,
 12
but for ourselves to bask in our own glory,
 13
and in that instance feel as if we are significant,
 14
and meant for something behind the questions with unsaid answers.
 15
