It is what it is

Every time you try you won't succeed but that doesn't mean you should quit.If you play baseball and your up to bat that doesn't mean you'll get a hit. If you play a game of bowling and go for a strike you might get stuck with a split, but sooner or later satisfactory will come when you get as far as you can get.

The author's comments:
Sometimes I try to do things and come up with ideas that doesn't get very far but one out of ten ideas make it but to get that one you can't quit.

I like it! It's really easy to understand and it still doesn't sound like any age person could right it. It still has meaning.

~Be proud of who you are.You are all unique in a different way.~
~I WILL NOT fade into oblivion , and become less than
a distant memory.~ was okay.


Split up your stanza's next time ,

and change satisfactory to satisfaction.

I like what you where trying to convey with your poem , and I wish it would have come across a little more clearly. Good job though :)

I thought this was pretty good!!!  The only thing I think needs improvement is the formatting.  Which might not be your fault, Teen Ink does weird stuff to the formatting we originally write it in.  Don't ever stop writing!!!!!!!! :D

Good advice would be to split it up into stanzas.

Good job! Very nice. "Satisfactory" should be "satisfaction" though. :)

"I never said it was going to be easy--I said it was going to be worth it."

I really enjoyed your poem!! I liked the message. My only criticism is that it was a little difficult to read, but that would be fixed if you broke up the lines.

Nice rhyming! :) I know TI sometimes formats the poetry messed up, but if not I would recommend you to break up the lines. It'd make it a bit easier to read. Otherwise, good job!!! `"" Thumbs up!
