Question Mark

I think I am like this question mark
not knowing which way to go;
what is my spark?
Life can be confusing, tumbling, 
and circling in my mind
never knowing what to find.
So when I see this question mark,
I see me.

    Shannon, for a new writer to The Soup you are getting quite a few comments. I think is speaks to the insight of your poetry. Keep on writing. I hope you are enjoying it. Thanks for the kind words on my poem. Have a nice day! Mom

    This is quite insightful. Forgive me if this sounds nitpicky but I would love it if the title was the actual ? symbol, the literal mark of the questioner. Granted that may turn people off who are more used to seeing actual letters. you could always flip the mark upside down to gain a different perspective, see if your questions look any different in a new light.

    Personally I think the question mark adds some flavor to poetry... People use to make fun of me for doing so but I see its becoming a trend. Enjoyed this poetry and have a great day.
