    what is poetry?
    expression of the mind
    or expression of ur style?
    only come on here to type ur ish
    but never drop a compliment every once in awhile
    what happened to that love?
    what happened to the family
    see, i know ur thinkin im trippin
    but ur not understanding
    this used to be a place i could come on
    get my flow on
    feel the love and roll on
    the things ppl say or type
    but now its all about ur skills or wtf u type
    i introduced this site to many ppl so they could feel it too
    but [email protected], they take it for granted too
    i feel like its changed and i wish u could see
    I would things to be like how they used to be...

    show love...show mad love
    but why waste a voice
    on trivial aspects of life
    when black folks here have neva really had a choice
    just mad strive
    peace

    I feel ya on this...but

    I also agree with Khas...it's kind of two edge sword

    I personally choose to write for my own personal gratification,
    solace and enjoyment that I get from the joy poetry gives me,
    and however it may hit me...........I write in a variety of styles
    on a variety of topics but it depends on how I feel...

    but I always show love......because I love poetry and I love to learn
    lifelong student I am, there's always something to learn

    one thing I know about love...is that it's contagious & if they hang
    around long enough it's bound to rub off

    I agree with Sistah Angelic. It may take a little tyme for them to learn to show their love but after you show your love to themas much as you want to be loved it will rub off on them too. But I believe if you feel you have gave love as much as you can give and you feel you ain't getting none in return you have to continue giving your love but much much more, and you will get your blessings in return. Remember, God reward those who follow his holy words. So LOVE, LOVE,LOVE until you can't love no more.
