    I like B better than A. It's more... empowering, I guess.

    A was still pretty good, but it was kind of sad and placed too much emphasis on things outside the self.

    These strike me as making about the same contribution to the noble art of poetry as a certain poster's similarly prolix discourses on this site are likely to make to philosophy. I am sorry to say that my response to them was also similar *eyes glaze over after the first sentence or two once I see where it is heading, scrolls down for an hour or two hoping to find something less pretentious, but more interesting*

    Thanks to everybody who voted. The second one is mine, I wrote it when I was 17, and it's still one of my favorites. There's a ton of emotion that went into that "too much like a list." The tiny piece of me that's logical was trying desperately to get through to the usual emotionally lost me, and trying to convince me to get on with my life and not wallow in the disappointment of things that I couldn't control. Thankfully, in the 15 years since I wrote this, I have occasionally remembered to read the manual.

    You are awesome, and I envy your ability to stomach asinine comments. Or criticism.
