Finally a Poet Crowing

At what point exactly ? Is one entitled to call oneself a poet ? Is it when you think you have written something noteworthy of consequent ? Or a critic adversary or peer referring to a work by name not with disdain ?

At what point does one truly give a flying rat's arse if they're a poet? If you are spitting your bricks at the wall, who gives a god damn flaming hellelujah brother, it's all about erasing everyone out and just spitting your stories at the wall and if they stick they stick and if they don't they fall. Just write. For you. Leanne

Good question Christopher I d like to think the former rather than condescension, some so called poets are too far up themselves to see what’s right in front of them, not all just some, I think I d have a good inkling to know if I ever write something good some day cheers David

Same here David as are we not our own toughest critic. And credit is only worthy if you respect or value the opinion of the giver

On the button Jan ditto same here Never in a billion year's did i ever think i would either and if you asked my english teacher or seen my report card she would have probably died laughing as well. Not that i am a poet i just found a better use or outlet to express my daydreaming and imagination
