Let's just write
Drama, oh so much drama  I don't understand why  It causes so much trauma More than meets the eye   Why can't people give their egos a rest? Try not to act as if they’re better  We are here to write and get things off our chests Not live other’s lives to the letter   It seems there are those who relish the fight Thrive upon the controversy They lash out with all of their might Instead of taking it in stride, showing some mercy   We have the talent of the written word As writers, that’s our blessing To spoil this gift would be absurd In the business of others we shouldn’t be messing   As has been stated, we are here to write Read each other’s work and give support We should rise above the urge to fight On the morals of fellow writers, we should not report
Author's Notes:
There are some good people who want to leave because of all the in-fighting. That would be our loss! I usually stay out of controversy, and I still wish to do that, but I would hate to lose talented people simply because there are some who just like to stir the pot. Please, can't we just write?

It's a mess, isn't it, when things are falling apart around our heads...Sometimes names cannot be named...and other times they should be named. It's just hard to know where to draw that line.

Well done, Henry...

Amen to Angel's comment...and many others!

More silly games. When and who has the wooden spoon now? There is no need for adolescent behaviour. Report whom ever is making it negative for others. I agree with Rich name names and let this be sorted out fairly. Making sure the one who is causing the trouble is the one whom it falls on. Let us continue to enjoy reading so many talented poems from talented poets. Lets bond with friendship, love and peace.


Way to go Henry chicken

As far as I am concern, this site is supposed to be PEACEFUL site where everyone should be supporting each other rather than condemning one another.  To me, this site is where one create nice and beautiful friendship, where senior poets helps amateurs write when they made comments, helping them to be better poets.  People comes from all walks of life and have different views and opinions.  We are human after all and human are bound to make mistakes which can be tolerated in a nice way.  I prayed and hoped that those who comes to this site can be united to make this site more beautiful and for others who wants a peace of mind to enjoy.


I came with a peace of mind and heart without prejudice to others.  What I am sure is this is a site for many poets writes and will continue to write to bring back honour and live to this site.


Peace be with you all.

I have no clue whats going on Henry other than some are leaving the site. Reading the poetry here lately I have become aware that there seems to be some kind of a problem. I only hope that what ever the issues are they can be resovled.

 Boy could I get on a soap box about all that goes on this site!!You would be so surprised at all the mail I have received about several on this site!!
Who all are doing so much ..jumping from man to woman...  woman to others men... Both sides at the same time...No wonder so many hearts are being shattered...and feeling like silly fools..
so many leaving the site because of a few .....
A epic story I could write with all I know...
 Your write lets just write... stay out of every ones business... who is doing who!!

"and so are the days of our lives!"  When does a person decide in their life to just grow up and do the right thing. The drama and the gossip should be left to the high schoolers. Glad you posted this, it must be said. Joe

Well, I must be part blind Henry, because I don't know much about what goes onhere. I have many friends on here but don't know all the gossip and such. Personally, when I did hear it, I didn't pay it much mind. Sorry to hear we have trouble here..and hope no one leaves due to it. Things can be worked out, and should be. Some people thrive on crap like the gossip; they complain and claim oh poor me, but they're usually the ones who feed into it! I stay to myself, and try to heal wounds if I can. I don't know what prompted this write, but I am sorry if there are problems. I do agree with you, and hope someone doesn't leave due to some petty garbage..sigh....can't we all just get along????
