You are either blind or uncaring Unaware of the pain you bring Or delighted to deliver it Either way, you have molded me By your capricious hand I've been on top of the world Then looked up at it And climbed my way back You have left me alone Doubting and loathing myself All I can do is love it And remember it will pass You have given me hope Dealt out peace and laughter All I can do is love it And remember it will pass Through poverty and power In health and sickness All I can do is move forward Fueled by what you throw at me I will change what I can change And learn to love the rest All I can do is smile back at you Driven by what befalls me Whatever you have for me next Whether planned or on a whim I'll turn your obstacles into the way What else is a human to do?
   

Rate This Submission

Please take the time to rate this writing once you have read it. Our ratings system allows people to know both how popular the writing is, and how well the general populous of the site thinks it is written. This also allows the writer to have feedback about their writing, so they know if they need to improve their technique, or if they're on the right track.

The system allows you to vote on several aspects on the writing. Refer to the help text below each aspect for an explanation. Consider the different aspects carefully, and submit your vote using this form. It will be instantly weighted with the other votes given.


Depending on the writing type, give your opinion on the overall plot if it is a story, or the concept of the writing if it is abstract such as a poem. Does it seem to make sense, strike a chord with you or seem a well chosen concept? Did the author stick to the concept or did they change mid-thought?
Did the author use words and descriptions that allowed you to visualize the scenes portrayed in the writing? Did the feelings of the work stir your emotions as you read it?
Were the words spelled correctly? Was proper punctuation and grammar used? Could you easily understand sentences or did you have to re-read lines several times to understand what was meant?
Depending on the writing type, how did the writing flow? If it's a story, did it have a smooth, easy to follow flow? Did the flow of events make sense? If it's poetry, did the author stick with the syllable flow for that writing type? Did the lines rhyme properly if a rhyming device was used?
Did the author use the same words over and over or did they use a broad vocabulary to get their exact point across? Could better wording be chosen then what they have used?

  • Very good. Almost song lyrics. I think you could set these to music.
