Please be kind. As an INFP, I'm very sensitive to criticism. :blushed:

Firework

Do you ever feel like a plastic bag,
Drifting through the wind, wanting to start again?
Do you ever feel, feel so paper-thin
Like a house of cards, one blow from caving in?
Do you ever feel already buried deep?
Six feet under screams, but no one seems to hear a thing
Do you know that there's still a chance for you?
'Cause there's a spark in you
You just gotta ignite the light, and let it shine
Just own the night like the Fourth of July
'Cause baby, you're a firework
Come on, show 'em what you're worth
Make 'em go "Ah, ah, ah!"
As you shoot across the sky-y-y
Baby, you're a firework
Come on, let your colors burst
Make 'em go "Ah, ah, ah!"
You're gonna leave 'em all in awe, awe, awe
You don't have to feel like a waste of space
You're original, cannot be replaced
If you only knew what the future holds
After a hurricane, comes a rainbow
Maybe the reason why all the doors are closed
So you could open one that leads you to the perfect road
Like a lightning bolt, your heart will glow
And when it's time you know
You just gotta ignite the light, and let it shine
Just own the night like the Fourth of July
'Cause baby, you're a firework
Come on, show 'em what you're worth
Make 'em go "Ah, ah, ah!"
As you shoot across the sky-y-y
Baby, you're a firework
Come on, let your colors burst
Make 'em go "Ah, ah, ah!"
You're gonna leave 'em all in awe, awe, awe
Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
It's always been inside of you, you, you
And now it's time to let it through​

I like the message a lot. Sounds like it would work best as lyrics to a song.

I'm not very good at reading poetry so I usually find it easier if it's split into verses/stanzas (or whatever...). Not sure if you stuck it all together deliberately.

Good work. Keep it going man.

Haha I was taking this seriously until the chorus and then I was all, "... WAIT I KNOW THIS SONG!"

Profoundly life-changing, this poem has replaced the framed picture of Rosie O'Donnell on my wall as my new symbol of inspiration and truth.

I was tricked. :dry:

Just goes to show that objective criticism is impossible. I would have given an opposingly different response if I'd have known what it was.

Ah well, INFPs make lousy critics...
