You were born an origanal why die a copy?The secret to success is the consistency to pursue.To the world you may be one person,but to one person you may be the world.To receive the right answer,you must ask the right question.Don't worry be happy! :)

I saw you today,
But you're not as I remember.
Your eyes no longer sparkle,
You've changed since last September.

You were so full of life,
Yet now you are so cold.
Your personality has tarnished,
When you once had a heart of gold.

You fell out of my life,
Just like leaves in the fall.
We were so very close,
Now you're not here at all.

You saw me today,
I'm the same as you remember.
My eyes still sparkle,
I've not changed since last September.

Isn't it so sad when you see an old friend and their whole personality and outlook on life has changed...and not for the good. Well that's what inspired me for this poem...I hope you enjoyed it

Pick your heart up off the floor
Sometimes, there are things you can only do alone
You can cry for now but just become stronger the next day

This is a similar message to what I was trying to convey in my sonnet entitled "Then".

I've felt the same way about my so-called best friend. I can connect to each line in your poem... Absolutely good.

I think it was a great poem. You used a great simile comparing how he changed to how the leaves fall off a tree. Also I could hear the Rhythm of the poem. It was a great poem.

I liked this poem because it had good rhythm and flowed well.

I also liked it because it had personification

Believe deep down in your heart that you are destined to do great things because you don't succeed by "It is what it is", you succeed by "It is what you make it".

I can really relate to this. I really hate when that happens, especially when it's happening right before your eyes and you can't do anything to stop it.
