Reviews for Death Sentence
PoetOfSaiMiHunManKal chapter 1 . 12/5/2015
Chilling and well written. The structure of this is the most amazing aspect of this poem. The short lines are reminiscent of a tired person's thought and the way the lines get shorter towards the end and end with "death sentence" being spelled out by each individual line are quite effective in conveying the sense that the speaker's life is flowing out of him/her and/or that the shooter is losing hope.

Chilling, poignant, and brave. Conveying the emotions felt by a student during a school shooting must have been difficult on some level and I like that you focused this student's feelings on his/her teacher who he/she wanted to protect. Your creative approach made this poem more engaging and heartfelt, which increased its power. Addressing community issues is important and, as a communicative medium, poetry is a thoughtful way of calling attention to the darkness that lurks within our societies. As a poet, you have done a phenomenal job opening the discussion about school shootings, bringing to light the people involved and the consequences for such a heinous crime, urging your readers to reflect, think, and react.

Beautiful piece!
