To each their own

To banish my violent games
Is to banish your writing pens
I may fantasize in gunfire flames
As you've written of now and then's
I have killed a billion bytes and bits
You have made a billion many bored
But the bytes and bits are not life lists
And the pen is mightier than the sword
Actual time of occurrence is killed
Not the people of angry games or rhyme
Complete devastation when drinks are spilled
Satisfaction from both fulfilling time
Unlikeness of a poem I'll leave it be
Unlikeness of a game you leave it be

 (I'm not sure if this is a true sonnet  poem, I am not a poet, I just started getting into poetry (reading mostly)so I can enhance my ability to write lyrics to my music ... feel free to critique,this is my 1st poem I have ever attempted to write properly.. (Im gonna need all the help I can get ! )

    Well Chris like you I am new to soup but it seems you have a much better grip on the proper lingo than I do. I have just always just written down things when I needed someone to talk to and the paper is always there. I loved your polite way of making your point. You should consider politics!

    Your words resonate with me. I do not wish for others to decide for me. This was one of my favorites. Well done, I would encourage you to write more. You have ability and something to say, a great combination for a poet. If you have a chance come and read some of my work. Congrats and enjoy your hobbies whatever they may be.

    Chris, Thanks for your clever approach to this controversial subject. There is another side to the the video game issue. And yes, the written word is most powerful. This is an excellent venue to practice your skills. I hope you will someday find your own "Stairway" with lyrics and music. I'll be watching, RAY

    Welcome to Poetry Soup, I enjoyed reading your poem this evening.I'd be glad to help. Looks like you have a handle on the end rhyme now equalize the syllables per line ..standard sonnet is 10 syllables per line.. Light & Love
