People are amazing things,
They don't have fins or even wings.
But what makes them amazing is that each one is unique,
And even though good looks are what some seek,
I go by the person, not whether they are chic.
Every person is different and has a personality,
That comes with their own special mentality.
Whether they are short or tall,
To-die-for handsome or ugly as a wall,
Just remember this one life technique;
Every person is unique.
I was bored, so I just wrote about something random on my mind. Leave any suggestions down below, and happy writing! :)

The only trouble is, should you be in a situation where you have to hide everything about yourself in order to keep peace around you. Life then becomes an iron mask.

Everyone is unique, except for all of the blue faces. So actually, only the yellow face is unique...

Doesn't it say in the rules you can only use an original image for poetry?

To top it off, the picture doesn't really represent "uniqueness" when 99% of them are identical.

(Even though I secretly liked the poem itself, even if it's an overused topic)

Yeah it was a poor choice. "I am so unique cuz everyone's not! :D"

It's okay to beat a dead horse, as long as you do it in a unnique way. Pun not intended.

I've seen this imagery associated to the same type of statements before and I always have one question that i ask the artist: "Then why did you choose to represent all the others in your [image] as identical?"
Bonus question: and why are they all sad?

I would've threw a random orange ball in the back, and tell people to look for it. It would also make the yellow look not so alone.

If only you knew my personality/mentality. As a male who's shy, sensitive, clumsy in sports, and fond of anything cute, cuddly, sparkly, and colorful, I got teased...A LOT! This is a great poem, by the way. There should be more people who think like that.

It's a manga about a boy in highschool who likes all things cute and fulffy, he loves to cook and sew so his few friends who know this say he's an Otoman because he likes all things girly.The main plot to the story is him slowly letting more people know what he's really like and finding out that people aren't as judgemental as he thought they would be. I've only read up to book four so far, I'm waiting for my local library to get more in.

It's a nice poem, but, throwing in my two cents, how is a wall ugly? It seems like you just tried to get it to rhyme more than have it as a physical representation of something ugly. I'd recommend splitting the handsome and ugly up and giving each stronger imagery. Keep it up though!

I like your poem very much. But this part
"And even though good looks are what some seek,
I go be the person, not whether they are chic."
Is hard to read. Maybe shorten it ?

And I think it would be nice to link back to the original artwork you used as prewiev.

I really like the yellow ball! Though if every person is unique, why isn't every ball a different colour? I think the yellow one is the one who is happy to be unique. Most people want to be like everyone else, not knowing how wonderful their individuality is.

I like your poem too. You do a good job with the rhyme scheme, though the metre is really off-kilter. If you did that on purpose to show the uniqueness of each line, awesome! If not, you might want to work on the pacing a bit. For instance, can you hear the rhythm in this?

People are amazing things!
Don't need fins or even wings.
So amazing--so unique.
Though good looks are what some seek,
Go be you, not someone chic.

Remember that while poetry tells a story, it does so in as few words as possible. Words like "a, an, and the" aren't needed a lot in poetry.

I like your comparisons like "to-die-for handsome or ugly as a wall." :giggle:
