    I was looking for an interesting poem that I could somewhat relate to and I found it. I encourage you all to read the poem, '! WHY! ' by Cynthia Silvera, it is very good.

    Is there some sort of problem at this forum, It reminds me of when I used to work at A PREP SCHOOL, when everyone had to be infront of everyone. We are on this site to write poetry, and to discuss it.Discuss well I will call it discusting, poetry to me is what comes from the heart and what you feel inside. All you seem to deo on this forum is make people feel inscure. Ilove writing, Ilove people to critisise my work to tell me where I go wrong so I can better myself.Just lately I have read some awful comments, like children in a playground bulling one an other. Well if this is the way that poets behave on line then I have got to admit that I am discusted. Not only for me, but children
    come on to this website to study poetry. So what can you offer them, from what I have encounted since I have been on poem hunter it seems that everyone is after everyones guts. 'They Shoot Dead Horses, Don't They' and i am one dead horse cheers sylvia

    OH MY GOODNESS! ! !
    I just stopped by to see if things had changed here since I left. but obviously it's still an ego filled place for children to play. Well I shall go back to a site that is more mature and has NO behaviour like I have seen here. Wow Sherrie or whatever your name is.....you play it for the limelight don't you. I never did understand people who enjoyed coming across as a bitch. You are so full of yourself girl. Get over it all of you and GROW UP.
    Oh well I have had my say. Now I shall go back and join the adults at my new site. I have enough of children at home.

      You mean you're retreating to Ego-Palace? This is not just another idle threat? Really throwing in the towel this time? Well, all I can say is, I hope your Ego-Palace has super wide doors in order to ... more

    I sincerely apologize for giving Mr. Neverhadalife a platform. I have only been a member for one week, and was rather disgusted by the aforementioned's behaviour. I am over it now. I want to talk about Sherrie.

    Neither you Newton nor P-H would have the intelligence or the physical attributes to do any kicking or anything else a normal human is capable of.
    I don't know what you are doing here, you are obviously too stupid to be accepted anywhere else.
    Since you are clearly unable to even understand the meaning of a poem (much less write one) it is the envy that hangs around you like a bad stench.
    Perhaps one idiot is not enough P-H, get a few more so you don't feel so alone.
    That's what happens if you are way out of your league and can't mix it with the big boys.
    It is regrettable that this forum is being misused this way but you can't have exterminators on every streetcorner.

    Herbert, your comments remind me of Stanislaw J. Lec's remark: 'Every now and then you meet someone whose ignorance is encyclopedic.' Here is my point in simplified English so that you'll maybe understand it: Your poem “A Friend Is...“ makes you look very self-centered. Your ideal friend appears to be someone who does this for you, does that for you, and you don’t have to do anything for them. In other words, your ideal friend is someone who behaves like a servant.
