    To My Destee Friends

    This poem will break from the mold I write in usually
    I had began to look at poetry as an exercise in futility..
    But then I posted a few and got really kind responses
    compliments mean more sometimes, when they come from total strangers...
    They have no reason to lie to you, unlike friends
    I consider all the poets on Destee....my personal friends
    through your poetry, and your replies to mine...I have found strength
    to continue my composing...and that means a lot to me
    thank you for sharing your soul with me, and I’ll continue to do so also
    sometimes when all is dark ahead...I find a lil light just by reading someone’s poetry
    Poets are a rare breed, all of us are connected just because we are different...
    From the rest of the world
    The ability to reach into our minds, and pull out words that correlate with our feelings...
    Is not to be scorned, it’s a gift
    finding comfort in art is something not many people can do...
    Usually they find it in other ways
    though I know none of you by name, a lot of our thoughts appear to be the same
    that creates a bond that I cherish
    the tidal wave of darkness and negative thoughts is pushed back as I read...
    The experiences some one is having closely related to mine
    we are all beautiful people, and poetry is a way of showing the beauty that counts..
    The inner beauty....
    when I leave for overseas, a lot of the things I’ve read here will stick with me
    I wish you all the best of luck, happiness, and peace of mind!!

    MidnightsSon ... I thank God for all things and I am thanking God for you and your words right now. When I started "Destee.com" it was not with a business in mind. My first hope was that it be a community for us, on the Internet. Reading your words, gives me to know, that God has granted my request ... regardless of what tomorrow may bring. Thank you so much for this evidence. :love:

    Where overseas are you going, when are you leaving, when will you be back, will you still be able to hang out with us and stuff ?? :)

    :heart:
