A short poem on Booksie as a site, as a warming-up first poem to me. The shape didn't really turn out the way I wanted, but enjoy. ^^

I just joined Booksie a few weeks ago...
...and I have to say I'm quite glad.
What I at first dismissed as 'mostly emo poetry',
Is actually not that bad.
But what I dislike about this site already,
is my problem with comments.
People seem to comment to get themselves more known,
sometimes without adding any meaningful contents.
But visit this site more often,
And after a few times you will find:
That there still exist people in this world,
That are actually naturally kind.

I agree with the whole 'oooh, I'm going to comment and mention my book because I want people to read it'.
Yeah, that gets to me at times!
Glad someone else realises that.

OH plus, I like the way you formatted your writing, I mean, one paragraph here and one paragraph that there. Nice

Great stuff. Your insights are very accurate. There is a lot of emo / vampire / self-abuse stuff on here, but there's plenty better work too.

This is some good writing. I am glad that you started publishing your own work too..:}
The best part of your poetry is it's originality and straight it! Also the point made is really true...there indeed are many people who comment only to get noticed...and the ending is perfect and warm..keep writing...

That's a big compliment, thanks!

Geez, another creative poem idea! You are on a roll lol! Nice one, and its so true. People will just practically BEG you to read their stuff, posting that over and over..whew, not even taking the time to look at yours. People care more bout their own success. Regardless, that makes this poem even better!

Uhm... how does that make this poem better?
Thanks for the comment, I just don't completely understand this part. ^^
