Please Be Kind - We're Not Superstars
Author: Capricorn


When we write a poem we reveal our souls
And in doing so we lose some control
We expose our hearts showing wounds and scars
Not intending to be `Superstars'

When you comment on a poem then please be kind
As most people have enough problems on their mind
If you can't say politely what you feel
Then please say nothing - it's no big deal!

It takes some courage to share our thoughts
So we don't need people making us distraught
We express our thoughts in many different ways
It's our therapy to help us through the days

We're not in competition so criticism should be
Of a constructive nature - that's the key!
Remember as you read, that our souls are bare
And making rude comments - only shows you don't care!

cap this is good and true. I can't exspress myself in talking. So I write out what I feel.If it ryhmes or not. The reason I write my feelings is because then I don't feel as vulnerable. You are right people bare their souls in their writing. Thank you.

Cap you should ask dreamer to use your poem as an intro to this site.I think it should be where everybody can see it.

Thanks Barb I felt very strongly about criticism & the words just came.Anyway you don't have to make your poems rhyme, lots of people write in `freestyle'As for asking Dreamer to use the poem as an intro,(I am flattered!) but I've only been writing on this site for 2 weeks, so don't feel I should.I'm still new around here! Thanks for your comments.
