It's nice to get honorable attention,
but not in this den of retention. It's been this way for years, but it's not apart of my fears.

Thanks Labelle for the honorable mention,
since then I've hardly got any attention.
Well to be honest,
hardly got any before,
now the jealousy is really knocking on my door.
Anyway I'm low profile,
but every now and then I do enjoy a smile.

Not too long ago,
a fellow den member
told me something I didn't know.
Probably never would have known,
about a fellow den member picking the bone.
I was refered to as this big nigger,
made me want to reach for my trigger,
but I'm smarter than this I figure.

For the non hating wiser,
I try to be a loving compromiser.
But this den is a hateful silly place,
people call you nigger behind your face,
I've had my share of stupid jealous fights,
and I've stood up for my rights.

Right to write,
I pay to use this site.
Right to exist,
with all the good and bad in my mist.
I try to be an honorable man,
but I'll get in your evil plan,
if I have too,
knock you on your can.

Hatemongers are horribly insecure individuals. They use labels because they don't have the intelligence to articulate a cohesive thought. I've only recently come to know you through your poetry, and I would be really sad if you stopped writing. Keep writing and posting, here. You are good for my heart and soul.

God bless you. Kathy

Keep writing, I'll keep reading/reviewing when I can!

Anyone who calls you the N word has NO business being on this site! Sad when the AD bigwigs can't do anything to stop this madness; it's crazy! I will keep you in my prayers; you keep writing! You have as much right to be here as anyone else; I need to see/read your words!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :(

Anyone who calls you that is stupid; they don't know any better! I feel sorry for them!

WHAT! I had no idea Grady, Oh My God- Which is all our God!
I know you have a heart of stone, meaning strong and determined! but you also have a heart of sensitivity that keeps on shining!
NEVER Leave, for those people are filled with Jealousy!
Write On!
I love how your words sing songs to my ears, I have been quite busy dear, but Ooooooooh, How I have missed YOU!
I will stay awhile in your quaint cozy honest den, and SEE and FEEL where your heart has been.
I've been heartbroken, and my recent poems show it. I need to feel a lift and I know the place to get it!
Love you Grady!
Your heart is always ready!
Give it like you do
To those who try to hurt you
In your coy and honest way
YOu share what you need to say~!
I appreciate that in YOU
and You better know I am being TRUE!
Color by the way, is in the crayon box!
Much love and Warmer Blessings and Hugs, Warrior Purple Lady Sweet Sheooxoo

Grady, I can kind of feel where your heart is, but come to my den and leave some sunshine if you have any left... I miss it...
Write On My friend!Forever till our end!

Since I've joined AD, I've been amazed at how truly hateful a place it can be. I had hoped that writers would be above all of that, but I was sadly mistaken.

Don't Let the Hate Mongers get you down, my friend. I think they will always be among us, and the more attention we give them, the more they revel in their own slime.

Whoever called you that is dispicable. You are a beautiful person Grady, wouldn't matter what color you are, love knows no color. Shame on anyone that is ignoring you because you got a little appreciation and attention.
