is it wrong to play a game with the youth that

never wish to grow up? is it wrong to seek the

nameless adults who push and pull, relentlessly

oppressing the ideas and purities of the fragile

children who only desire to play and endure the

everlasting cruelties of growing up with out a

nurturing, loving friend to call their own. We

can never forget, we can never forgive those

empty souls who force a child too age to soon

Losing their everything to the whirlpool that

only the empty vessels know as reality. Yes a

swirling abyss that devours a child's wishes

turning them into the empty shells known as

Also, I like the advice @somestrangebirds , offers; except I have to disagree with the suggestion of not using the word "shells" to describe, for reason of being too familiar. Typically I would agree. But I think for this particular work the familiarity is on point, for it describes perfectly the (feeling) of becoming just another 'clone', all similar, one to the other; dreadful, and boring. It's pretty much the essence of the poem. ( in my humble opinion)

Hey! Congratulations on the daily deviation.

If you looked to improve this piece, I'd consider interrogating some of these sentences to be sure they're saying exactly what you want to say, as precisely as possible.

I'd also look to be a little more economical. For example, I think the first strophe might be condensed to its final sentence without losing much:


can never forget, we can never forgive those

empty souls who force a child to age to soon

(You have a typo here, by the way: 'to soon' should be 'too soon'.)

The second strophe is a bit more interesting because it starts to construct imagery/figuration around its topic: whirlpool / empty vessels / swirling abyss / empty shells. Now, some of this is a bit vague and overly familiar (e.g., the concept of an 'empty shell' is a bit too familiar and edging towards a cliché) but these are nevertheless images a reader can engage with more imaginatively, I think, than the statements and questions of the prior strophe.

Anyway, congratulations again and I hope this comment is of some use to you.

I was just talking to another friend today about a very similar subject. I particularly like how your second stanza exposes the vicious circle that just keeps rolling along and crushing generations in its path.
