I really like this. I love the sing-song (but in a good way) rhythm that shows up in a couple stanzas. ("Life is made of these, painful ashen memories" and "These moments define us, they free and confine us"). I also, like a lot of people it seems, like the "I Rebuild" at the end. So optimistic, but so hard!

I wouldn't know anything about rebuillding, much prefer to avoid the whole thing, but I like the poem. Great work.

Excellent emotion and flow to this. I like the tone of the speaker, as it shifts from a somewhat pessimistic view to one of optimism. Very well written. The message is an important one.

Oh, those last words...they made my heart jump or sink or...I don't know. Whatever it did I loved it!

I love it! So very descriptive, I love the contrasts you used too. Good stuff. ~Bethy

Greatness in a person is defined not by their monetary achievements, or they charm, but the way they come out stronger after a crash down.
"Stumble and fall, is the hard of it all...when you fall down, just try again."
Beautiful poem...you really have talent for this.
Can't wait for your next piece!

Wow. I really don't like this one. And I love your work. This is a shocker to me... I mean... It felt I don't know. Rushed? I didn't feel that spark of amazement when I read this one. I think maybe it's the concept. I don't know.

I remain as impressed as usual. I love your work, Matt, but then you knew that already! :)
| les petits bateaux chapter 1 . 2/19/2006
Interestingly written, I liked the whole concept and the imagery was well-detailed, but the ending was unpredictable as I didn't expect the 'I rebuild' to be there at all. Good job, though.

Wow... can't say anyting else *speechless*
