stare up at me
make up all the
that surround me
shake and mix
I decided to set the post up this way, see how I liked it. And actually I like this way better. It makes the main idea of the post, the poem, seem more dominant. Speaking of the poem, as you probably guessed, this one is about faces. I sort of imagine it from the view of someone on stage. They're looking around at the audience and the other performers. They're feeling many things: nervous, excited, doubtful, confident; and it's all showing on their face.
I also have some other news relating to my poetry. The other day I got an email telling me that I had gotten my first rating for my poem, Orphan Questions, on Teen Ink. I was disappointed to find it was two out of five stars. This is my only rating so far and only 14 people have viewed my poem. I need to put myself out in the Teen Ink community more: get some more ratings and maybe even a few comments, post a few more of my newer poems, critique others (seeing as that was one of my New Year's resolutions and I haven't done anything for it yet!).
I have managed to accomplish something positive however. I made the poem I posted two weeks ago, Cast it Aside, into a slideshow type video on YouTube. It's not the best quality but I'm still really happy I managed to figure out how to do it (I get so excited over little things like this XD). I thought you might like to see it. ^^
