    It never fails to amaze me
    How disrespectful we treat each other
    Preceeded of course by saying "Sister" or "Brother"

    This art of poetry is a beautiful thing
    Portable and powerful
    Yet more often than not
    The artist is misunderstood
    The art manipulated by those up to no good

    Creative minds
    Writers of rhythmic words all can see
    Some of the minds have nothing to do
    Consumed with envy
    Minds made evil with jealousy
    I've had enough
    It's too much for me

    Positive is my mission
    A mission some say I am called to take
    To engage in petty knee-gro business
    Would be a negative vibe
    A very big mistake

    Write the words Poets
    Enlighten and entertain
    There are millions around the world
    Who because of you
    They feel something
    Their lives are not the same

    later,

    Very Well Done....

    Hi Heartbeat!!! How are ya doing... Man i really missed reading your stuff. I definitely was digging this crime.. Poetry is suppose to be peaceful, yet raged.... Saddening yet Joyful... Incouraging and yet heartening... ya feel me... cause I'm feeling you... Loving yo scribes... putting the emotions out on paper.. where they are stressed the best.... I am always in aww of yo words....

    I feel you

    First, it takes so much courage to share our souls in a forum like this. And when we are received well, it compels us to bring more...it's such an intimate experience, this give and take. But it can all be shattered by the pretenses and jealousies you speak of...diluting the mix, polluting the flow...

    So grateful to you for your sharing. Much ground covered along this journey...many lessons learned....and it's just beginning!!!...

    Looking forward!

    thank you

    :heart:

    BE~

    i have enjoyed writing what my heart and soul have experiencce...
    i have also enjoyed sharing the various stories within the folds of my mind...
    but, it has come at the "price" of jealousy...often what keeps me from coming to this forum or creates my sporadic appearences...

    i love reading at this...Destee's place...i am encouraged, inspired to pick up my pen and paper...to hit this keyboard in love, in rage, in whatever mood my mental is...

    i appreciate this piece because i know...how it is...

    we...poets...must continue to write~
