Reviews for Grow Up
Star Wizard chapter 1 . 5/30/2004
This one just yanks at your heartstrings.
You really accurately described that kind of feeling. It sucks, doesn't it?

*Sniffs* Don't grow up! Please!
Avory chapter 1 . 5/5/2004
It's a hard thing, growing up, but there comes a time in everyone's life in which they must stand up from the fetal position and take on the adult world. Your poem has adequately conveyed this feeling. I must confess that the simple rhyme scheme relays a sense of child-like innocence, like a nursery-rhyme, and not the more adult outlook on life. But, this is just the transition. The decision to grow up. Just the decision. The actual act of growing up has not yet been introduced.
Yeah... I just totally over-analyzed that... What do you expect with my AP Lit exam looming over me? It is tomorrow, you know...
Umm... the point is this: I liked your poem. There. I said it.

Sad... very sad. But beautiful nonetheless.
Don't stop dreaming, don't stop wishing. You never know when something might come true.
Heather Montgomery chapter 1 . 4/16/2004
*HUGS* Brilliant, babe. I love it. I love you. Don't stop dreaming, wishing.. hoping. They'll come true someday. I know they will. You deserve it. Don't lose the dreaming aspect that I love so much about you. You're the girl who almost never misses an opurtunity to wish on 11:11 or on the first star in the sky. Just keep believing, babe, and it will be alright. Growing up doesn't have to be about giving things up. It can be about adding new things, new dreams, to your life. I love you so much, my beautiful little Faerie.
I love the last stanza. It's so good. You're brilliant, my love. Wonderful!

Aw...that's a really sad poem, yet it's still awesome. It kind of says what I feel know, just giving up and stuff.
great poem.

I think that is the saddest thing I've ever read and probably one of my favourite poems's heartbreaking and I've been feeling just like that lately...and it reminds me of Wendy from Peter Pan (though I hate that little bitch..(feeling violent today, I apologize)). But chica this is mind-blowing and magnificent and is going straight to my favorite stories list and I adore it...truly...I dunno what to say it kinda consumed all my's tragic. Love and lufians, Mia
