Poetry Slam - Need Opinions

Post by Mahala » Sun Apr 26, 2009 8:14 pm

There's a Poetry Slam at school sometime soon, and our class is pretty much being forced to present. I'm no good at whipping up poetry for some bogus deadline, so I dug through my last year worth of poems... and behold! I have come back with 6 acceptable pieces. Now, just to pick which to present... I haven't gotten much farther ahead, so, I thought why not ask YOU guys! Read and vote, please. (If you particularly liked/disliked one, let me know, I'm still trying to improve my skills!)

Poems:

My Angel

Three Words

Make A Wish

Love Comes naturally

Nobody

Guardian Angel

I like fighting for the underdog. So, you know which one I voted for.

Ooh it was close because I really liked Nobody too. But I think the Three Words reads well out loud. Tell us which one you choose in the end.

I chose Make A Wish, because it was shorter, but fuller. I wasn't nominated - Popularity contest overruled the good writers. :roll: The district judges should have been choosing from the start, not this BS. Ah, well, always next year!
