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:

Searching for my Father

I've  been searching for my father for the past 9 years. Remembering him being violent, never was he silent. Being in a corner with nothing but tears, finally I stood up with all the pride I had to look foward to a bright glory day. I then woke up knowing that I will never forget that memory. Thinking myself Isaid," My search is over, I have finally found my dad, even though he isnt my real one, he is the best father any one could even ask for!"
