I once too went ands tried to post a few poems into a poetry book... They said my Copyright would be there, its free, and only child safe poetry was aload. So I said cool. Posted my best poem. Got an e-mail saying, Your poem has been sent in to be analyzed. So i waited. about 3 days later I got another e-mail saying. Congrats, your poem is approoved. It will be puplished into ( book title, I cant remember. =( ).. And so I thought cool, so i decided to do this with all of my poems.. And they all were approoved. Then when the book was puplished. I waited for it to get to the library. And went and checked it out. had about 500 pages. Checked every one four times, not even one of my poems were in it.. And then I went into the credits, looking for my name. Wasnt there either.
I probably could have took them to court, but, I got over it.
The point is, this happens to every one.
Anyone can write, But only poets can capture the heart.
