The poets challenge

Contributed by softerware on Wednesday, 19th September 2018 @ 01:34:10 AM in AEST
Topic: poets

Were all writers here; like you. We read to show were caring.
No ones job is commenting; Its courtesy, called sharing.

The more you write, the more you owe; We expect your praise you know.
And should you want your writing read; The price is reading ours instead.

Youre just like us; were just like you; Yes, we like getting comments too!
To grow and learn, we ALL take turns; It keeps this place in balance;

Pay up with comments; not with poems. Writings not the challenge.

And she`s done it again! This is as perfect as a poem gets and I KNOW everyone who reads this will relate to it the same as myself! Excellent description of this ypdc community and what its all about!

Love how it ends "writings not the challenge" because i definitely read the title and thought "ooh, is it a writing challenge?" But it/'/s kind of the opposite.

Also, thank you for the note about the apostrophes :o)

Okay novels over,,

Exactly...I agree 110%.
Not saying though that there aren/'/t
times where the true meaning gets lost in
And yes you are correct when you said that
commenting is a courtesy.
Another brilliant write my friend

but the poetry is in the comments
commensurate with any and
all written word, not to be judged as good
or horribly horribly horribly poor
for though it could be writing from someone
who writes good on a bad day,
oh hell, who do I think I am,

orange juice, is full of sugar
so is all that green kale vegetable stuff
they sell at the grocery

I am just glad I don/'/t write for a living

well said
the comments seem to have dropped off as of late

While every care is taken to ensure the general sites content is family safe, our moderators cannot be in all places; all the time. Please report poetry and or comments that are in breach of our site rules HERE (Please include poem title or url). Parents also please ensure that you supervise your children well when they are on the internet; regardless of what a site says about being, or being considered, child-safe.

Poetry is much like a great photo, a single "moment in time" capturing many feelings and emotions. Yet, they are very alive; creating stirrings within the readers who form visual "pictures" of the expressed emotions within the Poem. ©
