    You know those ones that like to read
    The people that walk to there only little beat and ther onw off scale speed

    What happen to the poerty lovers
    The ones that give much respect
    You know those people that only care about the art, and **** a check!

    What happen to the poetry lovers
    The ones that cant help but to write
    Even when they talk its rythmatic, with diction so tyte

    What happen to the poetry lovers
    The ones that know no boundaries
    When locked away, they put it to paper
    and somehow gets around it you see............................................

    I'm still a lover and I still show support. I just don't really have the time like I used to, to sit and read poetry all day. I have so many things going on with me I need time to do my own thang. I haven't wrote in 3 weeks ands it's killing me. I have a poem in me that won't come out. I love all the poets here and I would sit and read everyones poems if I could but i can't. So I say to all The poets of destee. I love yall and thanks for sharing. This was a tyte drop :kiss: That should just about cover it... :lol:

    whoaaaaaaaaaaa see brotha if more people asked themselves this than perhaps things would flow a little bit smoother but all is not always what it seems and poetic revelations arent always poetic dreams

    Present and accounted for, ready at your service.

    Thank you for asking such a relevant and rhetorical question.

    We are still here. But sometimes when we take pen to paper, the mind has other ideas. You certainly have a way with your pen. Waiting to hear more.
