Brilliant... finally; sophistication with the razor edge of high school.

*clap, clap* Very nice, very true. I like the part about the popular guy having so many secret "shames"

I like how this was written in sections...Very good work. This piece does come out well to describe the complex 'system' that you find not only in schools but everywhere...It's really too bad that people want to stereotype themselves and others so much...Sometimes it's really sad...
Thanks for reviewing my poem.

loved it. so true. a quote for you that i like (sort of ad-libbed because I don't have the actual words):

"Most writers do not want to write, they want to have written."

There's something strange about this poem... I can't quite put my finger on it. It's like on the one hand, you're promoting uniqueness and saying everyone has they're secrets, that nobody is perfect, and that it is wrong for either side to condemn the other. But on the other hand... it seems like you're chewing out the 'freaks' for their hatred of the 'norm'. It's weird because most 'freaks' don't try to stand out or adhere to the 'normal' way of things; they're just who they are. I don't know... it seems like you're defending both sides equally in my first interpretation, but weighing one side heavily against the other in my second. It's strange, because both interpretations heavily change the meaning and my view of this poem. Until I sort it out, I'll have to leave you with this. Cool, thought-provoking poem.

i get what youre trying to say, but why try to hide what they really like? the yo yous, the music...why hide? whats the point? theyre too afraid of what their friends will say, even if their friends have the same problems. there is too much fear in this world.

I love being touched by a poem. This one did it.

First poem: Somehow, I could relate to that. I was a Goth girl, after all. And you've caught the feeling right.

Second poem: Sad, but hits the target. If mirrors could actually speak... There's truth in there, truth few of us dare face. Brilliant. Loved the part where the guy liked the Goth Girl but never dared to admit it or make a move.

Mt favorite of the three.

Third poem: Angsty. But that doesn't make it less true.

Overall, good work.

Strange, how you made both sides of the hierarchy appear to be equal in this poem. You must have more freaks and geeks at your school. ^_^ I know what you mean, though. Each clique, whether it be of preps or self-imposed freaks, is completely exclusive, for some reason. Well, at least HS's all over in 6 short years.

i loved the 2nd part. great poem.

Pretty true- reminds me of something I saw somewhere:

"Always remember that you're unique... just like everyone else."

So it looks like if we conform, we conform, and if we try to be different, we're still conforming. Sigh...
