"It's easy to stand in a crowd, but it takes courage to stand alone"
"What would you attempt if you knew you could never fail?"

Do you like me?
You asked me such a simple question
And I was for sure
That I knew the answer
Duh, of course I do
But maybe I don’t
Why don’t I know?
Is it because you broke my heart?
One too many times
To be exact
If you asked me
To tell you my
Honest answer
I’m not positive that I could
Because it might make you
Regret asking
And make my heart hurt
So much worse
But then again
If I don’t tell you
You’ll never know
And quite frankly
I won’t know either
So maybe
For the time being
It’s best if you
Don’t know the answer
To the question
I know
No better than you do

To tell one's name; the livelong June-- To an admiring bog"

I really liked the message of this poem, but you easily could have made it a lot more poetic if you added a few descriptive words. There were also a few grammer mistakes in there. Only reason I rated it 4/5. Still loved it though. keep writing.

A poet's work is to name the unnameable, to point at frauds, to take sides, start arguments, shape the world, and stop it going to sleep.
