    I think these poems are brave attempts, with genuine thoughts: but for poetry it is not enough just to write down what you think or feel in lines that are cobbled together. It is not what you say, but how you say it - the ambiguities, the echoes, the implications, metaphors and similes that turn prose into poetry. e.g. in writing I prefer being/a born atheist the stress falls on the 'a' (making it mean 'just one? ') and doesn't work well except as prose; and also commits the narrator to a doubtful theory about the inheritance of acquired characteristics. As I say an ebullient beginning, but needs more work to acquire the skills developed by generations of English poets.
    I would suggest a careful study of poetic form and metre in English so as to make departures from it (if wanted) more relevant and positive, and less casual. Easy writing is bad reading.

Life

Life is like an ice cream
Enjoys it before it melts
Because you never know
What's going to come next

Life is like a glass
Enjoy it before it breaks
Because you have to go a long way
Nomatter how long it takes

[Hata Bildir]
