Poetry Critical 2.0

Hey guys, Donald here.

In a few weeks, this site will be 9 years old. 9 years! And I still know some of the earliest submissions by heart.

But, boy. That’s like 102 in web-years. So it’s time for something new. I’m building that something now with my nights-and-weekend minutes (and plenty of coffee). Buy me a cup?

Random Poem:

The Ignorant!

I ignore the ignorant
i live the life God Gave Me
I don't trust anyone, but their will be one whom i will  trust
As the days pass, i grow and become stronger, but i feel this distance makes it longer.
If i don't bother you, then why do you bother me?
I don't ask you to help me, so do you do it?
Why do you like to make me suffer, if i don't make you?
But since i have a heart.i use it to forgive you.
The bipolarness gets into you. It kills you inside and you use it as a magnet to hurt others.
But I'll just wait for you in the same place as i always have.
And I'll once again ignore You. Yes YOU! Ignorant.
