I think writing something is like an outlet for writers to just write and not worry about being liked or understood, I think the writer just wants the work to be appreciated in a way that there isn’t a need to understand anything but there is a mutual understanding between the writer and the reader.

I think the underlying meaning of this is really good. But somehow I think it would be better if you could expand it :)

Goodness, you are great at getting straight to the point and having a big impact on the readers. I don't think the comma was necessary though.

very nice concept and approach...however maybe you should change the layout of your poem it was a little hard to read just as a pragraph. great job though :)
