I didn't like the poem. It was trite, juvenile, and the rhythm was off.
I'm sorry you found it so distasteful. However, there's not a reason to be quite so harsh. I'm sorry that i've seemed to upset you. I looked over my posts, and couldn't find anything.. abhorring in them. Well, sorry anyway.

Okay, I guess that makes sense. By the by, I love your siggy. Truer words have never been spoken.

I did find it kinda juvenile though, but I took in consideration that you said it was written awhile back. I assumed that was a few years ago.

I do not think speed was being harsh, if you've been around awhile you'd know the type of person speed racer is, she's just not afraid to tell the truth. You wanted critique, and she gave you a critique.

Yes, I understand that. Critique is critique. There is, however, a nice way to go about it. And that, she did not. And yes, this was written back in 6th grade. I'm in 11th grade now. I was going to make some changes to it but decided to just put it up the way it was. My english teacher liked it though. LOL

People are people, don't expect everybody to put things in such a nice way that you want. She could've said that was the worst crap she has ever read if she had thought that.

In the word's of the rolling stone's "You can't always get what you want."

Obviously I'm just coming off as stuck up snot nose brat, so I'm going to quite talking after I add this- I'm not looking for her to lie. I respect that she is simply being truthful. However, She does not have to be truthful in a rude way. That is just what I got from the way she put it. But you're right. I can't expect her to say things in a nice way if she feels like saying it rudely. Apparently that's just too much to ask these days on the internet.
