    well i think if the pain is real enough & you can express it enough you could get income out of it.. i guess i see it as you can do anything you put your mind to, i write for me too i have a huge amount of emotion i mean i dont run out of it when i write.. i like showin off what i write tho.. poetry isnt really a good source for an income raps better but i mean i wouldnt mind poetry :) i dont know i posted this shit a while back my thoughts are completely different now

    you know, another road you can take is enter poetry contest and get scholarships....go to school and learn more of the art...and maybe share your talent with future generations and teach...get an education degree....just a thought

    So damn true, lol...one should write for the pure sake of writing. To enjoy themselves in expressions that nobody else on earth can really understand except for you, but people still love it...Anywho...go to www.Poetry.com it's self explanitory...

    yeah, guidelines suck nuttsacks, but there is a part on there to tell you how to get your work published and whatnot. Also, another phenomanal site that you should check out...www.timbooktu.com, great place...anyway...sometimes to shape yourself, you have to conform to others...

    While TimBookTu does not attempt to censor any work, works using strong language or strong sexual content will be considered and a message such as: Advisory. Contains strong language will be added in the table of contents. Submissions deemed to be too explicit, pornographic, too violent, racist or hate-filled, or any work considered distasteful by the Advisory Committee, will be refused for publication
    - that is bullshit.. i bet id be classified as too violent or too explicit or "distastefull".. anyways its only works to do wit african-americans and african-american culture.. and i dont really write to fit a race or ethnicity.. i could write about racism/discrimination worldwide shit but damn i dont like this site either..
    damn another site that tries to mold you.. shit im lookin for somethin that will accept me as i am..
