As I roam from place to place

I gaze around the world

And all I see is clay they

very from place to place

Some are tall and some are short

Each has a different expression on there face

They get formed a little, a little each day

The colors and the faces fade away

I search for rocks and find only clay

The following comments are for "Clay"
by poetfreak

I think you should think about swapping the rock and the clay in the last line so the poem ends in 'clay'

I search for rocks and find only clay' for example.

'looking around' in the first line is a little weak, how about 'hunting' or some other strong verb. And think about whether you are actually sitting, or is 'sitting here' cliche for being in a particular place.

'the colors and the faces fade away' is the strongest line in the poem. I'd keep working it and maybe expand on your thought. -Philo

I like this insightful piece. I wish I had your knack for saying so little with so few words.

(I want to be more like you when I grow up?)

I also agree with Philo's comments. These changes could make the piece stronger.

As always, I enjoyed reading. Please keep posting.
