Figured I'd go back into the vault and repost one of my oldest poems. There are a lot of good ones from the blog's early months! (New poems are scheduled for posting this weekend, promise!)

Notice anything about the structure of this one?
What do you think about this statement? Agree or disagree? Anonymity on the internet is like having a wallet. It’s an important tool you have and the first thing you stress for. It stores your identity safely and protects your finances. But make one tiny mistake and you risk losing it forever.
...I think this is pretty self-explanatory when you read it. 😊
Loosely based on stories I’ve heard from those who have to deal with difficult moments in their lives. Life isn’t always easy. For some, it’s hard to cope. For their loved ones, even harder when they know.
Oh, the irony in this short poem is strong. - An original work by Coeur d'un Poète.
