Rain

When it rains,
it puddles.
When it pours,
it floods.

When I shed a tear,
I crumble.
When i shed more tears,
I fall.

When a puddle dries up,
a little flower can bloom.
When a flood dries up,
the whole world can resume.

After I cry,
I feel like i can fly.
After I breakdown,
I have a choice to stay down,
pick myself back up.

Is a bit sparse, but it manages to fit the bill. The language is simple and understandable. I would switch the second and third verses around, but other than that, it does the job of letting people know how you feel. Pretty good for one of a poets first poems. Welcome to Neo. and I hope that you stick around and read a lot of poetry here and get a sense of the help that can be given. We don't expect that you will like or use all of the advice that you are given, and you are not required to make changes to any of your work, just to please those who do give advice. I think that you will see that this is a place to learn as we have many people here that will help you become a better poet if that is what you want. ~ Geezer.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?

Thank you for the advice and i will be sticking around for a bit to become better. Also what are you basically saying to switch the second and third verses around?

that would make it a little smoother in having the idea continue before moving on to the next thought. ~ Geezer.
