    This forum lacks poetic professionalism. As writer. Let's follow instructions just for once. Stop posting your poetry here, and start telling us. How to write a poem, or. How you write. Poetry, what inspires you and. Other. Forms. Of poetry that you are. Familier. To.

    Teach me to swim.
    I don't want to go  the  gym.
    Teach me  a Hymn
    That I can hum.
    Teach me all.
    That a child  should know.
    Teach me to walk in snow. 
    When the festive season is new.
    Teach me

    Let the boy in you write first, then the man in you can edit later.

      Writing is a discipline of writing meaningless sentences making sense to senseless paragraphs, putting words in one box of eternal indiscipline. Thanks man.

    It's funny! But I've been searching through the forums on this site, everywhere I look all I find is people posting their own poems. Is not the purpose of these forums to discuss ways and techniques in writing poems?Is not the purpose to create ideas on how to write?If so, then where are the discussions, where are the techniques and ideas. I have not found any advice, techniques or ideas on writing. Maybe it’s just me.

      I really agree with you. I think people are struggling to be noticed... the purpose of this forum is not met.

    Dear readers, below is a poem meant to lament the disaster involved in a war or similar experience. The victims of war are not its only casualities, 'they are well out of it'... But we that remain behind to mourn these losses are the main casualities... We should avoid any cause for a violent process and embrace dialogue wherever we find ourselves...

    'Aftermath'

    Its weird only when its a cry;
    Its mild and a norm to be without a fright;
    cataclysmic experiences bury forever plight;
    Unexpected predicaments to contend with all the remain might;
    weirdness conceived...

    Sojourn in the land of fear;
    Cheap commodities of fright for sale;
    what a journey to embark on by this new itinerant!
    Lucid variations of harmonious feeling of fear;
    pale pedestrians sail in their pairs...

    A new life of charade for the fear of fear;
    recurring encasulation of the reason for the tear;
    the fear to play;
    even to pray;
    All squadron withdraw, retreat and hide with personalities of lesser fear;
    still, no not one, that is not borne with this same fear.

      War or any other disaster must be felt. You have raised a good voice against it. I liked your poem.

    Dear Readers,
    Below is a poem from me. I shall be much obliged for your critical appreciation.

    The dancer of space,
    A charming face,
    Amazing mountains,
    Music of fountains,
    Flowing rivers,
    And the divers.
    All on duty.
    Keep the beauty.

    The teen-aged girls,
    Need these curls.
    The babes and moms,
    Need the farms.
    Mother's the earth,
    Keep her wealth.
    All on duty!
    Keep the beauty! !

    The queen planet,
    Eternal sonnet,
    Forests and gardens,
    Are the wardens.
    The friendly trees!
    Cut not please!
    All on duty! !
    Keep the duty! !

    Public masturbation
    Mental masturbation.

    I think my poetry is fine
    www.chukwunonsoibe.tumblr.com
    the problem is making money from it

    this is a problem because i don't want to do anything else

    i just got rejected from creative writing school
    i know i am good enough to get in
    i don't know why they didn't take me

    Poetry is easy
    so is blasphemy

    human beings are greedy
    except they choose not to be

    writing this piece is unnecessary
    i could plant my vegetables
    and rare my life-stock

    but i choose this,
    i choose you

      You state poetry is easy to write and that your motive for writing what you call poetry is money. Forget it and go back to growing vegetables because lust for money will not produce poetry of substanc ... more
