    Very good point F.J. A poem is to let your voice be heard :) and it can be done in a number a ways. What I get from your poem, is that none of us should feel superior because of how we choose to express ourselves.

    BINGO BECCA!!!!! I have read some amazing poems by people who had only ever written just that one!

    You point out that all poets have their bad days - which is a good point. As you seem to be saying poetry comes form inside each writer. Peace & Love Matthew Anish

    That is one point :) But I'm kind of more aiming at those who feel their poetry is superior merely b/c they have it formatted; that has no leverage to me personally when it comes to a truly good poem. But that is also a point; to remember that it is THEIR opinion, just as mine is only my opinion regarding another's work.

    I'm glad you feel that way Scotty; that's pretty much what I want to see when I read another's poetry, who they are :)

    Listening is a weapon, and some people hate carrying their weapons when they are given an opportunity to listen...

    Yes. The bad thing is, let them tell it and they're good at everything!

    So true! We are all different and special in our own way, which is why we post our work here. I enjoy all of your words because it allows me to catch a glimpse into your world :)

    You can also do this in prose. to me if there is no rhythm or flow, then it is prose. Enjoyed your words....peter

    Thank you Peter; I have read some prose that flowed and some that simply read as a story; but that would simply be my opinion, so in that case I would simply not leave a comment :) That is the point I am trying to make; helping me make a poem better is one thing; but detailing how you have such talent based on formatting, metering, and other such grammatical tangibles is not poetry in itself.

    This poem sounds like you're talking directly to me. If so, I can guarantee the same thing. I truly like this one, it's very bold.

    Thomas Avatar F. J. Thomas Date: 11/30/2013 9:32:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    LOL oh no! I appreciate the poet who may choose to try different formats but not the ones who feel that MAKES them a poet...let alone one who's better than others.

    I understand now. For a second I thought I was getting slammed and wasn't sure why.

    PJ that was directed at a type of person but I never saw you as fitting in there :) There are those who forget the meaning behind poetry when trying to remain within a format and would put themselves above another's for something as simple as that format.

    cont...Something than can be taught, whereas true poetry, poetry that can reach into another's heart and mind, cannot. I have never pictured you as such.
