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:

Don't Wait Until It's Too Late
letystar75

People only notice you after you die
 1
That's when they decide to cry
 2
They keep asking themselves why
 3
They didn't get to say goodbye
 4
 
 
Why do they shed tears
 5
They didn't bother to pay attention last year
 6
When you were still near
 7
They should've been with you when you were here
 8
 
 
They give you flowers now that you are dead
 9
They should've given them to you alive instead
 10
How do you enjoy your flowers on your death bed
 11
They just crinkle and die above your head
 12
 
 
My message I'm trying to state
 13
Is simply for you to not wait
 14
For the day when you realize it's too late
 15
To tell a loved one....They are great
 16
