I just read the entries and I have to admit that I agree and disagree with some of them topic wise. I won't even try to criticize because simply I don't believe I am competent enough for that. I love sam's take on death, because from my point of view that is what it talks about, co-existing with death. Someone who everyone faces and everyone must learn to live with. Iris poem simply seems to me to portray the darkness that is fear, every person's fear is something dark and sinister, and that's how people see fear. Ryute's poem finds me in a difficult spot, because I personally am afraid of things NOT changing. I am afraid that things will remain the same in this hopeless situation. But I can also empathize because I am always thinking that I don't have enough time.
Oh, I love analyzing pieces of literature . . . .
