We're all just looking for attention, to be discovered overnight. We're all frustrated by the popular ones that claim the limelight before they fall to pieces. So many of us are stuck under the radar--what makes me different? You decide!

nice!!! doesn't waste a single letter

I was wondering if you figured out how to submit one of these poems because i also tried to submit a haiku and it told me it needs to be over 100 characters.

I think this speaks to just about every girl out there. Looooove it! So much I wish I wrote it. But I'm not one for haikus.

hi sorry to bother you, but i was wondering if you could answer this question for me.

im wrote a haiku for teenink and i tried to submit it, but it said that it had to be over 100 characters. When i look at these haikus, they have practically the same # of characters. Am i doing something wrong? And yes i put it under "haiku"
