Favorite Quote:
Life is hard; but it's harder if you're stupid. -John Wayne

I cant see a thing
where am I
Lost in the lies, and the fear
what do I do
I seemed to have forgotten
No place to go in the this world
except home
to my heart
and my words
that speak poetry
An endless path to another universe
a place only some can see vividly
a place unknown
in the dark
The dark isn't always a bad thing
it also represents calmness right
There I will go
and if you want you can come too

I think this is a good poem (I especially liked the last few lines and the repetition in lines 11, 12, and 13) but I think it could use a bit more work. I'd get rid of the "and" before "my words" and I'd put more enters in (Ex: calmness right). But good job.

Keep writing!
