Ft. Lauderdale, Fl USA
Hey, all you Passion poets! Just who do you think you are?
Your words are filled with love and praise - you write like Lochinvar.
You always act supportive...write to ease each other's grief.
When someone has a problem, you are there to give relief.
This tiny website has become a large community
Where folks can interract with love through words of poetry
But have you all forgotten there are other types out there
Who don't believe in caring and have little love to share?
To get attention, there are those who feel they must berate
And there are those who hate to love and those who love to hate.
No wonder you offend them so with all your shows of love...
They have no self-esteem and that's what you remind them of.
No Nobel prize in poetry will come out of this site.
No famous poets may emerge but....so what? That's all right.
The friendships bonded here will last until the end of time
And we'll not soon forget our days within this place of rhyme.
But what about the other guys - the typical bad boy?
Unable to create, their only choice is to destroy.
You all are their worst enemies. You are what they are not.
Your strength is in your values - those are things they haven't got.
Perhaps it would be kinder if we set aside our verse,
Belittled and berated...showed the world how we could curse....
No, I don't think so. Let's continue with our poetry
And, to the others, let's give them our heart-felt sympathy.
