Someone stole a poem of mine, and a very personal one at that. Type in the first lines to my "Cherokee Flute" poem, and you will find them. I sent the ones responsible for controlling that kind of thing, but have gotten no response. Seriously, I don't care who you are, you DON'T STEAL from others! EVER! Perhaps some will think I'm overreacting cause I wrote this while I was mad, but you know what? It needs to be said.

Anger boils over at a accelerating rate

Plagiarism is the one thing I surely hate

What gives others the right to steal

The writing that you express, that helps you heal?

What kind of person does this to others?

I'm overreracting? This is why I bother:

Writers all over the globe would agree

Writing is the one thing that sets them free

It says who they are, and reveals their heart

When you steal from that, it tears the soul apart

Plagiarism is taking away from the writer's very Being

And that, dear plageriser, is a very horrible thing

What if someone stole that brand new TV or cell?

That's when you would definately be raising h3ll

Then why is it ok to steal what someone else wrote?

Making that beautiful writing take on a sour note.

"This is really my poem!I swear!"you say with hate

But I fear what says differently is the posting date

It hurts when people steal, whatever it may be

How do I know?Because it really hurt me.
