The rhythm of this poem was awesome, and I especially loved the 'love your neighbour hate yourself put your needs upon a shelf' bit, and the bookends :D The only thing that itches at me is the bit with 'if your ugly fix your flaws'. It should be 'if you're ugly fix your flaws', though idk if that was deliberate?
Anyways, really adored this poem, you have a real talent for this!

Wow. This is beautiful. In a sort of tragic, ripping way. Makes me sad to think much of this is true and quite the reflection of society and its cruelty. But still, how you make that look beautiful.

I love how it starts out dark, then becomes humorous for a few lines, then becomes dark again. The tone of the poem is very well done too. The way you alternate between having three and four syllables is great because otherwise I think the rhyming would make it too sing-songy? The fact that you only rhyme half the time also contributes to that though (the fact that it's not too sing-songy). I find the fact that you don't have any punctuation interesting. I would love to hear your reasoning for it. I like the fact that I get to choose where to pause and "end" the sentences. I am just really impressed! If you want to contact me, I would love to hear your thoughts behind this poem!

I feel stupid for reviewing something over ten years old, when I don't always review new things that I've read...
I just love how you put together all this contradictory advice. I've come to the conclusion that ou should just do as you think. I specially love this one:
"Love your neighbor

This is a very nicely, well done Found Poem. (Yes, this is an actual style, it's basically a bunch of stuff cut and pasted together: I did one for class with over 20 song titles) Says a lot about the neverending pull of all the different expectations people face in their lives from all different directions. All your poems are well done, really, you really know how to write/use imagery well.
It's nice to see someone out here who realizes that poetry is more than just rhyming words :)

Very cool poem. I have to admit, when I was reading the summary, I was thinking "this is either going to be brilliant, or a piece of complete drivel." I'm pleased to report that it was the former. Again, great job with this.
