    I love this so much! The rhyming is excellent, and I love the way it conveys a sense of time running out. Well done!

    Abrieart, this is gorgeous!

    The individual hairs on the wolf give the picture a lifelike appearance that is astounding. I also love the care you put into the petals. It gives the background a blurry look while the foreground and main image stand out. I'm a huge fan of this piece!

    Hey charvermont!

    I really love the ideas that you can convey with so few words. Your piece is to the point and very easy to understand while also being complex enough to have second meanings. Besides this, I love the imagery that you create in your second stanza! It's easy for me to picture the scene you are writing about, and helps me understand your poem that much better! Nice job and great work!

    Keep writing :) --nean_bean

    I like this poem a lot. "Summons lightning from the crest / Of the crown- then it spirals down" is probably my favorite line.
    Thank you for posting this !

    First, welcome to Young Writers Project! We're glad that you have joined, and we admire your courage in putting yourself out there with this piece.
    As far as the particular dilemma you describe, for me, just speaking from my own experience, when I discovered "positive psychology" I was led to many books by many authors whose perspective helped remove this frozen-on-the-diving board or other basically unproductive feelings. Two books I would recommend are "Find Your Power" by Chris Johnstone, or "You Can Feel Good Again" or "You Can Be Happy No Matter What" by Richard Carlson. There are many other great authors working in this field, and you can find a writer that works for you, but what they all have in common is understanding that positive thoughts lead to positive outcomes, and you actually can control your thoughts, it is a skill you can learn like any other skill.
    Hope that is of some help, and again, welcome to YWP!

    This is a great poem NAW793!

    I really enjoyed your rhymes and the way that you reflected on summer in such a truthful way. I can totally relate to everything you wrote as I too am definitely dreading the start of school :) ... I especially enjoyed the line "The sun is fading away". It's very descriptive and uses beautiful imagery. Perhaps you could include more of that in this poem if you revise? Overall, this is great. Nice job! I look forward to reading more of your work!

    that was definitely a twist, I was not expecting that! I like how each color has multiple emotions and are related to different things but they all tie into the one rainbow. (also rainbow is the symbol of pride so that was clever too) great poem!
