       I figured with all the drama going on surrounding me what poem better to repost than this one. It tells the whole story. No changes have been made to this piece. this is the original form. And no, I don't want anyone to feel sorry for me. This piece was written some time back and I just want people to see me for who I am.

    dotsPOOR POET (REPOST)dots

    Poor Poet...

    Nobody understands his work
    They say stress is not synonomous to ink on the shirt
    They say his poetry is grounds to flirt
    Never seeing the circumstance that supplies its birth

    Poor Poet...

    They don't appreciate his work
    He said to them "How can you hate me" and they called him a jerk
    He's often lonely...bless his paper and pen
    He's too young to be the best if you ask other men

    Poor Poet...

    So many of them tell him to stop
    He believes that they just don't want to see him on top
    For in his heart he is considered the best
    He jokes about it but a lot of truth is hidden in jest

    Poor Poet...

    Someone told him that he should rap
    Told him poetry is an art; not a rhyme and a clap
    So he lashed back at them with metaphorical zest
    Told them he penetrates minds like homosexual sex

    Poor Poet...

    He told them that his pen is his breath
    And he'd continue to write until there is no ink left
    He even tossed aside his paper and put words on the table
    Tatooed "The Ink Pen's Pimp" just above his navel

    Poor Poet...

    Nobody thinks he'll make it in life
    But he cuts through negativity with his pen as his knife
    He observed all of the comments that the people hade made
    Wrote a poem about it--third person--and signed the page

    Poor Poet...

      Wow this is really really extremely good... I love it... it is very lyrical, do you sing it? I really enjoyed this, I can't even critisize it, geez! I am definitely adding it to my favorites. It sort of made me feel lonely, even though I tend to feel that way on a regular basis, it had a lonely vibe, its very very original, excellent work!
    Vicious :)

      i don't know if i remember every reading this one... but hey, i agree with you, what better poem to repost than this one? well, i guess what you really have to ask yourself here is "is it really worth it getting all worked up over all this drama?" take the high road and just be like "you know what? f*ck it." if in your heart and your mind you believe that you are the best, than more power to you. we all have our own individual truths, and if that's yours, forget what everybody else has to say. the only opinion that should matter to you in a case such as this is your own. sometimes you gotta these things with a grain of salt... anyway, whatever you decide to do after all this is up to you... best of luck in everything that you do... ...bb...

      I'd be the last one to tell any writer to quit writing, so I agree with that part of this work. I think associating too closely with being a "victim" isn't wise, because it lends itself to a kind of self-fulfilling prophecy and is distorted in its view of reality. Delusional, some might call it. Most ppl won't go out of their way to criticise or attack another poet, especially here on ES, unless that person calls it down upon himself. But to mythologize it after the fact, and say, poor poet, <or poor me in this case>, is an inaccurate representation of the facts.

    No one is telling this poet to stop writing.

    No one has criticized this poet without cause.

    If he IS a victim, or misunderstood, it is by his own hand that he has called down lightning upon himself. It's like the dude who spills a few gallons of gas in his livingroom, then lights the match and burns his house down, then cries how he is homeless.

    Poor fella.

      Man I like this one. I can relate to a lot of it too at times. I think we all can. Thanks for reposting it...it was a very nice read.

    He's too young to be the best if you ask other men

    Great line. I got that a lot and sometimes still do, but ya just gotta keep proving it to people that you are, ya know? Have a good one.

    Lemme guess, Eminem is one of your inspirations. Your poem made me laugh with the genius of it. You are so great, no matter what they say about you. I love how you wrote this in third person, then you talk about it like that. I really like this. It explains you perfectly. I wish people would stop hassling you so you could go back to writing the way you did before. I really like your writing. I know, I'm just being repetitive. But it's true. I hope you have an absolutely wonderful day! Keep writing!

      I think this piece shows a lot of courage and determination. I like how you make it clear that no matter what others say, you'll stick to your beliefs and your will is never broken. This is a great example of truth to yourself. Don't let anyone put you down, poetry is not 'one way' it's every way. Everyone has thier own style, thier own passion. Write for yourself. Great job hun.

    *hugs a plenty*

    that dont quite make any sense but i did like the last 2. yeah the poor poet sounds like a dead beat rapper that cant catch a break.


    that was decent but the poet needs to drop the ink pen pimp label lol and grab a mic

    peace, dylanpoe
