    because everyone is selfish and only cares about their own work, You can start by reading and critiquing lots of stuff yourself. and asking people to please return the favor for you. =)

    you know i hate to sound selfish myself but when i first came in here i got tons of love
    which is great for someone like myself who feels like such an oustider where they grew up at
    and can hardly ever talk to anyone....especially females
    you know that really hurts....they forget that people that give off a different vibe are people to
    but enough of that they just aint hearing me
    but i hate to be so pessimistic about it so ill gladly return the favor that to those who take time to attempt to hear what im sayin

    peace and love to all the lost and confused poets out there
    at least someone out here is attempting to hear yall

    Eh... it's expected.

    I can't complain about the responses because I don't really want to respond either.

    Plus if every poem was viewed by thousands of people, there wouldn't be so many starving artists. Take solace in the fact that many greats were slept on, and embrace the opportunity to cut your teeth.

    lol...as long as I've been around, its not really a big deal to me. I see how many ppl. "viewed" it & that's enough for me. You just have to give & eventually it'll be given to you also.

    People in the realm come & go, but something I noticed is they always come back. I think that's wonderful. It's always good to read something from the realm.

    I'll be honest, I still check out the realm a lot. I read everyone's stuff.

    But the truth is, I'm just getting lazy. That's why I don't really post anymore. I love reading stuff, and I'll always be around to MOD the realm, but with work, and college, it's just hard to reply to every piece and put my own out there.

    I see y'all though.

    i been on rapmusic since like 2003, (under mocha_licious) and thatz juz how it goes...whoever gets slept on will eventually get noticed if their work is nice enough...everyone who drops words arent great poets...kinda like everyone can be a poet, but not everyone can be a developed poet who reaches different levels in order to reach different people who read the poems......*peace*

    Because people don't form opions or assess poetry, they just read it.

    this is common in alot of poem forums... i think its because the very nature of poems makes it hard to really give feedback on other than "i liked it" and comments of that sort. most of the people reading the poems dont know how to analyze and comment on them, so they just don't =\
