#12

Sun Ra 

I wrote this to thank the readers of Poetry.com
I've achieved the number 12th spot on the most active members list
With my first week on Poetry.com in session I've managed to make wonderful progress
All thanks to YOU ALL! The readers, you guys inspire me to keep going and continue my writing
I thank you all and I love you all so much.
So that people won't be disappointed by this I'll write a lil something.

Each critic empowers me
Each reader builds my artistry
I feel the energy
Overcoming my body
As I pour out each word
Some common, some unheard...
I can say the heat of elite love lies above those who seek it's oasis
Or say...Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis(It's a real word. 45 letters)

Hahaha....I'm just venting out of my pen, nonsense
But I'll continue to write these ideas and how I feel
And I'll continue to write about my life since,
You all love it when I write about what's real

Each critic empowers me
Each reader builds my artistry
I feel the energy
Overcoming my body
As I pour out each word
Some common, some unheard...

Into the heart of this poet you all shall delve
As of this fateful week. You all can call me. You guessed it. #12
