Thanks for the comment on my poem, it really meant a lot. Yeah, I noticed I spelled it wrong, just as soon as my teacher turned the internet off in my classroom. sorry, I'll fix it. I'm glad you enjoyed it though. Thanks again!
It's true that a lot of people don't have the talent with words. I wasn't any good with poetry when I was growing up. I loved to read and expressing myself with words was something that I wanted to do. It's not for us to decide how good or bad a writer is. I do agree that we can criticize people but you should never tell a person that they are a bad writer. People write because they need to express themselves. If you tell someone that they are a bad writer then if they quit what becomes their outlet... cutting, drugs, crime. Let them know that they can work to do better and improve their talents. Help them. Those of us that excel are here for those that don't. Never tell someone to stop writing. Help them to be a better writer.
bollocks? Where r u from Mexico? Either way, it is always cool to talk that way...change is good and we are in dire need of it now more than ever. The sixties was when people started realizing it and now we need to actually do something.
