Favorite Poem: (put a poem you like, but didn't write here. specify who wrote it.)
this is tough...i have too many. but i'll have to go with "Much Madness is Divinest Sense", by Emily Dickinson:

Much madness is divinest sense-
To a discerning eye-
Much sense-the starkest madness-
'Tis the majority
In this, as all, prevail-
Assent-and you are sane-
Demur-you're straightway dangerous-
And handled with a chain-

Example of Work: (put a poem you wrote yourself here.)

*Carbon Copy*

Break me loose
From these binds that hold me.
With the acid
That drips from your tongue
You burn me from the inside
Till my screams pull the blood
From your ears
And my nails leave their mark
Down your back.
You force me into the infinite abyss
of your arms,
and your darkness swallows me
as my voice is strangled
By your stifling oppression.
Your thoughts infiltrate my mind
Stealing my individuality,
Till I'm nothing but your carbon copy,
Discarded on your desk as you search
For your next victim,
assimilation inevitable.
