I fear that a man who requires the blatant validation of others has no faith in himself.

Call me inquisitive, but I'm just curious: What exactly did you hope to gain from this thread?

Then that's all you need right there.  If it makes you happy to do so, then you don't need the approval or validation from anyone but yourself.  Yes it's nice to have feedback, but ultimately is it really going to sway the amount of satisfaction you get out of writing?  Writing for the sake of writing because you enjoy it, and not worrying about what everyone else thinks, does a world of good for your soul by not getting caught up in all the criticism.

It’s all good my man. Not you’re writing of course, it’s all shit. Although you will be in good company here, there are a lot of us who write like shit. So head up and grind through it bro. Remember to put that dunce hat on and bob for word turds in this wonderful bowl of poetry!

I read a couple of your poems and the subject matter is worth exploring, my honest opinion is they're a bit long and can get redundant. if I was you I would go through and take out a lot of the filler, maybe get a thesaurus, sometimes one word can give you more power, oomph then a long explanation. most of all just keep doing it, you'll find your groove. anything else feel free to pm me.
