Voices

A Poem by Annabelle Lee
"

something we all deal with

"
Voices
Inside my head they tell me
"You're ugly"
From my brothers mouth they scream
"You're fat"
Hisses behind hands whisper
"You s**t"
From my classmates they shriek
"Teacher's pet"
But from my parents I get
"You're beautiful"
From the coach I get
"You're strong"
My sister calls me
"Friendly"
My friends all say
"They're wrong"
So which voice is correct?
Which is devine?
The only answer
To that question
Is one word, 
Mine

I really liked this one, the poem flowed well.
This is something that many can relate to and i am one that can.
Sometimes it is hard to ignore the other voices bang inside my head.
You just wrote down a poem that can be easily connected to and understood.
Your meaning is clear and other than that i would like to say thanks for the read.

ha. thanks daddy. i forgot this one was still on here.
The poem is solid. I like the idea of taking constructive criticism... but heeding your own advice is good, also.
If I were to change anything here it would be to drop the explanation at the top. Let your work stand on its own. And let the reader decide if it is standing well, or falling down.
Good work. Keep writing.

Pointing out that you’re an amateur writer, well this poem of yours is good. The interpretation of the content is concise because of its simplicity.

The fact that you are still starting in this genre of literature, might as well explore yourself and find out what is the best suitable style of writing you are also comfortable with.

This also comes with more writing exercises so that you can develop your writing ability.
