Surfing the Cosmic Flow
Hey, LostPoet. It helps if you remember that it is about "you" not "them." "They" do not have to respond, but "you" as a poet have to get the Muse off your chest. I've posted in so many fora over the years that I've lost count. Some individuals respond, my poetry obviously striking a chord with them: many others and read and walked on. Hey, so be it! I said my bit, I've cast my seed: who knows if any of it fell on fertile ground? The beauty of it all is that you can do it, and you do. It satisfies that nagging Muse, and, who knows? maybe, just maybe, it made a difference in one person's life.
Write on, my friend...it is what we do.
