If ur repsonse is not on the poll please Post it, We all would really like to know ur opinion and the reason you share This is specifically for all the poets in the house, Why do you post ur poetry? In the "Get your flow on " forum it was a young lady in there who was thinking of leaving destee because no one was really responding to her work, A fellow poet told her that she should only flow for her self, not for the approval of others. Now, in some ways he's right. I think you shouldn't write to please others but in all reality when a poet share their work they are sharin for some type of feed back(good or bad) or so that they can get a message across, at least that's what I thought.... In my opinion and from my experience, many post their work to share, to get a message across, but mainly to get some type of feed back. It's very important to me as a writer and a poet, to get others opinion of my work. To not get a response is like a spoken word artist gettin on stage, spittin their work and not getting any type of applause, smiles, snaps, or anything after they are done. The audience just looked at them. When the poet get off stage someone say it's all about gettin on stage performing for ur self and makin ur self happy. That's a bunch of BS. What do you think?
