My only love sprung from my only hate. Too early seen unknown and known too late.

We're just a whistle in the wind
Blowing through time until we finally make an abrupt stop
We all make choices determining who we are and who we will become
We all climb the ladder of life
Some will prosper
Some will suffer
But challenges all come our way
It's just a matter of how we embrace them

I enjoyed the poem, but the idea has been writen about many times before, and you did not realy add anything to it. Also it might have been nice to have ended the poem with a refference to whistles in the wind.

I love how short and sweet this poem it. It packs a punch...and I love your word choice!

All your poems I have read so far are packed with meaning. The length of each poem is perfect. For this poem, you may want to add some commas or periods in it. Great job!
