    Why is the link to the forum missing from the top-page orange bar???
    Is it just me, or is this circumstance ascribed to all?

    Today there I got a chance to read the poem " Alexander's feast or the Power of Music" and every line of the poem comes to mind as the real episode. Great work.

    ] I am what I am [

    I am what I am
    I’ve always been there with them
    I am what and I am when
    They write about me with a heart shaped pen

    I am what I am
    I go where and when
    I was, I will be and I am
    I am at my best when forbidden to them

    I am what I am
    I can be a song, a tune or a gem
    Different for ladies, children and men
    Create, destroy and start all over again

    I am what I am
    I am wisdom, knowledge and power forever till the end
    I am how you choose – a wish, a miracle, a curse or a stem
    I am love…

    Yet again
    I simply am what I am

    Let's drink to… (21st B-Day Toast)

    Let's Drink to…
    The good times & the bad times
    To good friends & bad wines
    To great memories & even bad mistakes
    Stories long forgotten & 21 years of tasty birthday cakes

    Let's drink to…
    Our success & our failures
    Cause when you look at it, both are saviours

    Let's drink to today & tomorrow
    Let's drink to wherever our lives may go
    But even if you forget all of the above…

    Let's drink to True friendship, great faith and real love!

    Absolutely No way Mr Professor.... for there is far too much sadness and hatred in this Small World. I am against anything negative. Thank you and have a bright and Happy week.

    Acker is back dangling
    from a cross. He's got
    the Jesus persecution
    complex. He thinks
    he can walk on water.
    He can only pi*s in it.

    I hate that plum professor
    he aint got no juice left
    in him, he is known locally
    as pip squeak, his poems
    are prunes, his wife looks
    like an olive tree in Alaska

    I think I'm going to go ahead and start getting into it with some people on here. SO BORING, lately. Too many 'nice' people, terrible poets, and all around riff-raff. Let's get the old hatred happening again. How about it, people??

    Thanks everybody for all the wonderful messages I just found in my inbox! It's been so long since I visited Poemhunter-I see good changes! I was looking at one of my poems and it began being read outloud to me. Wow, fantastic. Any other changes I'm not aware of yet?I will be able to take a little time now and read some of the poems you have been working on since I've been away! Keep up the good work poets! ! ! I saw you've been reading my works as well. Thank you for that. This is an amazing bunch of writers on this site! Good works from good people. Excellent to see all of you writing good pieces! ! !
