| Small Wings Flying 9/14/12 . chapter 1
I like your first line, mainly because of the matter-of-fact tone. You state it as a universal fact of sorts, leading perfectly into a listing or argument to prove it.
I also like how you've illustrated the stuffed animal remains even after other aspects of childhood slip away, eluding to the fact that something remains within us as we grow.
I also like how you've written it like a narration because that makes it as if the author (aka. you) is speaking out to the reader (me in this case), and that helps dive into its meanings and relate to the ideas. Nicely written.

i totally agree, being a child was so much better. but i hope the person in the poem sees the brighter side of growing up!

That is so very true what you've wrote. That was me like 3 or 4 days ago.

[and the worries are overwhelmingYou go to that dresser,]
Missing a space (or perhaps you forgot to hit enter?).
I liked this, I think you portrayed the situation really well, especially with the examples, and the sad tone of the piece. It's realistic as well.

omg, it reminds me of when I was a child and I wanted to grow 'cause I thought I'd be free, but I miss being a child right now, 'cause they never notice nothing.
by the way it's a good poem about teens problems.

despite all the years that have come and gone
our friendship has remained with constancy
your worries and my worries have changed some
but our thinking has no autocracy
we still both know that in life we're alone
that to share thoughts with sensitivity
or even to describe that feeling love
makes you not indiscreet or me pansy

The last stanza is a little...weak.
Maybe you should make it "when each night..."
Because it just thinks you were struggling for an ending.
The rest was good, true, well-written, good flow.
