Note: This blog has finally reached 100 views, I'm so happy. Every day I look at the world and want to make it a better place, inspire people. If this blog only inspires one person then I'll be happy, but hopefully it'll inspire you all, if it does please give a diamond or subscribe! It doesn't make me money, but money doesn't matter, it gives me the encouragement to go on every day.

when I was in the 5th grade
I was among the disbelievers
among those that taunted and sneered
and turned their noses down at us
those unenlightened who said:
“Minecraft is stupid”
and so in turn never saw the beauty of it

then in 6th grade
I discovered the Yogscast
the beauty of blocks
and thought to myself
“Hey, that seems pretty fun!”
but I didn’t touch it
for a very, very long time
all those stereotypes churning in my head
and I kept saying:
“Minecraft is stupid”

and now
I’m in 7th grade
having come so far
fought the creatures of the dark
fallen in epic clashes
built great kingdoms of wood and stone
and I think to myself:
“Boy was I wrong.”

so when I think of what I wish to be
I know where my heart is
it’s made of blocks
and so I dream
and so I envision
that maybe one day
far, far, so far away
I can live off of what I love

but my friends scoff at me
my colleagues laugh at me
and everyone says:
“That’s impossible”
“You won’t make it”
“Time to grow up”

they attack my dreams
they pierce my heart
and I wonder
“What make my, our dreams, so easy to dismiss?”
we’re expected to grow up so fast
to stop dreaming
to move on
to become an adult

but I say
never grow up
and so for the most part
my dream endures
it’s made out of diamonds

and so when everyone is trying to drag you down
and bury you beneath the Earth
and tear your dream apart
the only way you can beat them is TO BELIEVE
and then one day
maybe not so far away
you, we can turn to them and say
"We did it.”
we believed

CreditSpecial thanks to all my subs out there! For believing and dreaming with me, because one day I'll make it. For the majority of you who are new, diamond, comment and subscribe PLEASE. It really does help me a lot. Inspiration: http://tothisdayproject.com/

You might want to remove the spaces between the lines, but keep them between sections, looks nice, though.

Yeah, one thing that you might want to change with your site is when you copy things over from word or some other program it seems to greatly amplify the spacing between the lines, you might want to fix that.

Yeah, you want to talk to Paril about that, I haven't a clue why it does the things it does.

Great poem. Here's a diamond.

I don't mean to be a prude or anything, but you may want to change that second to last last line (I've seen other blogs get flagged for milder language).

Thanks for that advice, a day after you posted this comment and I fixed it Jetra, a site moderator look at this. That... Could have been bad.
