Writer's Block: Yes, offense taken

If a friend or relative makes a racist or homophobic remark, do you tend to confront them or let it slide? Are you more likely to confront them if it offends you directly or someone else who seems reluctant to speak up?

Confront, always. I don't put up with that kind of crap.

Writer's Block: Going Greener

I live with my parents and there's no way they would agree to go "green" unless it lowers the electricity bill. Also those green, energy efficient products are really expensive.

Writer's Block: Dream Job

Oceanographer, archeaologist, astronomer, a scientist in the North/South Pole, one of those guys that get hired to do bussiness in one country and get to spend their days off in another country of their choice (my dance instructer's friend had the opportunity to get this one but he couldn't because his wife had a baby on the way. Damn marriage)

Personal Evolution

There was once a time where I could
basically forget about everything
Never knowing, never remembering
Why did you leave me then?

Why did you leave me?
Right when I was looking for you.
Why did you leave me?
Am I such a burden to your life?

After the rainfall
when the entire world was filled with fog.
I searched for you endlessly
but you weren't there.

Why did you leave me?
Right when I was looking for you.
Why did you leave me?
Am I such a burden to your life?

Am I such a burden on your life?
Now that you have left me,
I won't cry again.
No, I won't cry again.
I've grown up.
And that's not me anymore.

The America Library of Poetry, International Library of Poetry, Poetry.com, ect

ATTENTION ALL POETS!!!

The so-called "America Library of Poetry" is a scam. They publish almost anyone's work no matter how crappy it is and then charge you the "discount" price of $32.95 for an author's copy. Here are the signs:

1. They don't tell you who's judging. Look around! Nowhere in the site do they disclose the names of the publishers.

2. There isn't a real address. P.O Boxs are not real addresses. It's located in Houlton, ME. Tell me, what publishing companies are there in Maine? Whatever happened to New York or Chicago, maybe even Washington DC!

3. It's a .com.  "dotcom" stands for commercial. If there were people really there, then it would be a dotorg. for organization.

4. Why isn't Amazon or Barnes&Noble buying it? I looked through the coming soon page in Barnes&Noble. The anthology Brilliance isn't on there.
