Cute, playful in spots, and easy to read! I liked the progression (which I identify with) from lowly, compliant, bored, stuck, to hopefuly, contented, happy. Interesting way to do a character study!

"A hopeful drop am I." Yes! That's me! I loved this poem and how it took a single drop, through so many emotions and to it's destiny. It made me smile today, thank you!:-)

Awww.......I loved reading this river entry from a drop of water's perspective.

My favorite:
Just one of millions, here I am,
I don’t know why I even try
To stand out from the rest of them.
I’m nothing special, that’s for sure,
A lowly drop am I.

Great poem! I loved the journey.
What a cute poem! Well done!

What I like - I really liked the ending best! This was written from a nice perspective.
What I might change - sometimes the 'I' seemed to stick out abit too much but the more I read it the more I found you wrote it that way. I am by no means a poetry expert so how it is laid out means nothing to me - I am just going on how it makes me feel when I read it and it was a delight!!

I really enjoyed the progression of the drop, and the way that the drop's feelings changed with its perspective of the river and of its destiny. I liked the concept of giving a personality to a drop!
This was really cute. Enjoyed the read. Keep sharing.

This is so sweet. I love it. A reader can take the story of the yearning little drop and apply it to a human being, just one among such masses of humanity, longing for something special. You are a delightful writer.
