Reviews for After All
Punslinger chapter 1 . 6/28/2009
This is a very well-written smooth transmission of your thoughts and emotions to the reader. The ending is a nice uplift from the general gloominess, like the Bible's "The sun also ariseth." The only discord was attempting to rhyme "here" with "appears" in the last two lines.

DraganMir chapter 1 . 6/28/2009
Solemn, if not melancholic, tone in this poem that sets the mood from the beginning. I like the repetition, I think it works well. Something else that works well is the layout of the poem, two stanzas followed by the short, "Disaster, disaster!" stanza, and repeated. The descriptive wording is good. Great last line, leaving a sense of hope that tells the reader not everything is so dreary. Good job with this poem, it's nice when they just come.
