    They come in the form of just a small

    "Thank You"

    Some come as simplistic as

    "Very Nice"

    Others come in the form of a hella long novel

    Then there are those that will make you think twice

    I've read "This is hot" and "Good Flow" from a few

    But none can compare to depictions

    Those silly little emoticons

    revealing just what we mean

    When relaying our heartfelt descriptions

    The ideal for we poets is to have our work praised

    In a manner befitting queens and kings

    But since this ain't Camelot and we're

    just ordinary nobles

    I'll settle for the smiles that it brings

    "Tight work fellow poet!"

    "This joint was a 10!"

    All some more of the props that we see

    Adjectives that show just how much we support

    Each and every gifted poet at Mama Destee's

    I could go on and on but I think you got the point

    Of how a small proper goes a long way

    It matters not how big or how small it will come

    Just know that the energy of propers brightens the day!

    i lost you on this because the title of this is Destee Discussion Forum
    as a poet who write about issues
    sometimes a person might want to expand
    on the subject i think people write more than about love here, there's more to life than love, love of life is a different issue, but i think a person response should be left up to the individual, i myself like longer responses because you feel the reader read your stuff, when you throw those one liners out it seems that the reader didn't really read it. if i respond to something i read it, cause i can't be saying hey "good piece" and i am a KING dun, i don't measure myself on how many ******* i got or how much many money i have cause what i have is priceless, no body could afford to pay me. i don't want to come across like i got beef GQ cause you my man and i respect that. but here your point but let people respond they way they want cause people are already told what to do what to think and what to feel this is one place i feel i can get away from that.

    Peace GQ i ain't mad at cha but you know how i can express myself

    never will forget

    my first time posting on the Old Afronet...uncertain, nervous...having never shared my soul in this kind of forum...
    and then, the love began to floowwwww. Back and forth in waves like warm, electric currents. I was overwhelmed by the love.

    I am still overwhelmed by the love.

    Feeling this one strong! Thank you. It's all good, and all true!

    much love [email protected] :)

    So'Ja my man! I ain't mad at ya neither. But I do think you misconstrued this piece. It depicts the power in a prop whether it be in long or short form. We all know if there's something that needs to be expanded on, we here at Destee's speak our minds. Additionally, some works have hit me like a ton of bricks and all I could say was a one word adjective or a one line phrase. You got nothing but my respect for your expounding on subjects - that's what makes you "Da Street So'Ja"!!!

    Other fellow poets - thanks for the read!!!

    Peace

    if i missed the angle of the writer, my bad but i did not miss the point of short appreciation can go a lot further than
    a long one

    as always to my Dawg ain't nothing change dawg over some words dun

    Peace and Love
