To die will be an awfully big adventure.
oops, liked the poem so much didn't see that.

Despair of Mankind?


I'm working at a poem that might fit. I'll post it if I finish it within the deadline.

Do you have to give your poem a title? :p
Halahan is the closest, but its' much more specific ^_^

People were thinking too broad with the apacolypse.

What's in the apacolypse? ^_^

What is a despair of mankind?

What can change a life so drastically that the person becomes empty?

A clash of styles is never the true way to go. There are many styles in the world. It is in no one's right to force their own style on to another.

okay here's mine..


Inevitable thought
And unchanging ways.
Surviving the feelings,
Concurring the meanings.
She has no where to go,
No place to hide.
Endless nights
And repeated fights.
She tries to move on.
To live in a better life.

I tried fixing it. I do less of a song, more of a poem. And I know poems still need rhythm, and I think it has that.
btw, good poem trustfactor.
Comment deleted due to harshness again.

Once again, nobody has the right to try and force their own style on to another. Everyone should be allowed to blossom into their own unique flower =)
This post was not a flame in any way. Neither were the others. It was still quite rude.

Once again, everyone has their own set of symbols they enjoy to use, etc. It is up to them to decide.

one word can change the entire meaning and feeling to a poem....

to change that one word changes the essence..

the words should be up to the poet, not the critics.


To die will be an awfully big adventure.
I'm not giving up, but your still making me mad :mad:

the first four lines. there own seperate thing. it has its own rhythm, such as.
We face a Juggernaut,
They slowly advance,
Our People Distraught.
In a non-rhythmic dance.
Boom Boom BoomBoom,
Boom Boom BoomBoom
Boom Boom BoomBoom
Boom Boom Boomboom boomb

Read just these lines, I think it has rhythm. I'm going to revise it and look at what you wrote... still... I think your being a little mean.

They face an enemy...
they're advancing,
the people are distraught..
running around in terror...
that all relates perfectly.

then a like a two line plee.

then e metephorical one line.

"We face a Juggernaut,

They slowly advance, - Weak Line... They makes it weak, slowly breaks up the poem

Our People Distraught. - Continues a rhythm set by line 2 taht breaks from line 1. Line 1 should be the main factor of this stanza, not line 2. If throws off everything else =)

In a non-rhythmic dance. - Good imagery etc, but I suggest something that more resembles line 1. Line 1 is like a major statement. This is like a whimsical lyric."

See, the first line is the main thing. then what there doing, (I see how its weak now) then what the first line is causing for the next two. it all relates to the first.

That breedlings seedlings things... as in their children...

I'm not just describing one day, its the war in general.

Responding to that entire thing is just going to take to long and make to long a post, I'll read it though.

I think its a good poem, which is odd, usually the writer is modest with diehard fans. :D you guys really put a damper on things.

I'm just trying to explain to you where I'm coming from.

I don't write to much poetry, I'm more of a novel kind of guy, which by the by, check out my story Remembrance should be at the bottom of the page right now.

Gj by the way, I read you entire thing and you got me so depressed I feel like just deleting the entire poem and making another one

By the way how old are you?

That poem has not been submitted yet henceforth : D


To die will be an awfully big adventure.
One ending is another beginning. literally.
tell ye if anyone gets confused bout that
this talked about forming a natural image and developing a story out of it. Once again, this is a style. I think it's a very beautiful style and a very difficult style, but then again, that is my own opinion.

Opinion is what can cause a war

It's been deleted due to this

Halahan, follow your dreams and write how you want to write


To die will be an awfully big adventure.
Well... that was the second poem I've written in a year. your five years older then me too....
thanks for the advice, but I can deal ;)
Was a cocky post and was somewhat harsh...

To be proud of your work is a good thing, but to be bragging about it etc is not so good.

Everyone deserves a chance in the light.

    I have had all of the symptoms, taste is slightly starting to come back, but smell, no. Honestly, just been a little miserable, have never felt in any danger from it. Being trapped at home sucks. lol
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    meh, got a little fever again this morning, guess gonna be a few more days
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I went to Comicon this last weekend I hope I dont get it I feel fine and I am not vaccinated and did not wear a mask
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Comicon really was not packed though like it was in the past. I am not really worried though it was the most people I have been around in a year.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Still, getting vaccinated is a good idea. We're getting Delta variant spikes here in Boston.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am not against vaccination at all I just have a serious procrastination problem I plan on getting vaccinated soon
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    was kinda same with me, I was gonna do it, and life got in the way.
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    we wore mask in some places, but at 118 degrees outside, little rough. :)
  • The Helper The Helper:
    yeah i had another friend in Vegas talking about that heat damn
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Well I do not think I got Covid from the Comicon

    Pushed out a new Pokemon Walking algorithm build. With a new system in place, I'll probably start tackling triggers and NPCs,
  • Varine Varine:
    Is it fucking hot everywhere?
  • Varine Varine:
    What's a pokemon walking algorithm?
  • jonas jonas:
    it's an engine for pokemon games that closely emulates the walking behavior of pokemon red/blue/yellow
  • jonas jonas:
    basically if you wanted to implement pokemon yellow from scratch, and you'd want it to feel as close as possible to the real thing, you'd start with that
  • Varine Varine:
    Like from the Gameboy games? I'm not at all familiar with Pokemon.
  • jonas jonas:
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I only played the Pokemon games on the Gamecube and Wii and such not on the portables my kids had all those games but I never really played on the portables. Now that I think about maybe once sooooo long ago.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    That's about right. I'm just emulating that old-school RPG feel on the Game Boy system. If I had more free time, I would definitely want to add more things.
  • jonas jonas:
    I guess you folks were too old, but those games were our childhoods:p
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Well, I'm about to hit 30 this year, so I'm now officially old.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hey wait a minute!
  • The Helper The Helper:
    You guys are youngsters. I am square in the middle of my midlife crisis at 52.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    How are the kids?
