    Poetry can't be put in a box, it needs to breathe, unlike those stuffy critics. Their loss, they probably can't even get a grip on your pen. Loved the detailed, in your face style, and I whole heartedly agree poet.

    Can I say Hell Yeah!!! Hell Yeah!!! I feel that & keep singing your words in soulfire. I can relate to you because it seems like folks want to hang on to the past poetic styles, forms, etc especially when it comes to writing competitions and you name it, but Poetry itself is evolutionary. It's all the time growing and changing. I think you're part of the evolution and don't worry bout the haters cause in Evolution only the strong survive! Keep the Faith & Keep tha Flow!
