The den is a fun place to be,
but it takes awhile for one to see.
With amateur and professional writers,
some of the members become fighters.
Some of the best,
take others to test.
Then quit a few of the rest,
understand this writing quest.

Mixing different abilities,
sometimes cause hostilities.
For the brave ones who proceed,
some help they heed.
However some go on and bleed,
even though they may need.

I didn't come here to learn how to write,
my adventure is purely a form of excite.
All my life English grammar has beat me,
but I never let it delete me.
Here I am writing for fun,
sometimes it's worst than being under the gun,
still I refuse to let it stun.

I do this because others told me
I wasn't smart enough,
even if they are right,
they forgot about being tough.
No ones going to run me out of town,
never again will I let others put me down.
I may not be a good writer,
I am a tough fighter.

I write,
regardless if I'm right.
Beat me,
don't try to delete me.
I'll take a beating,
still keep writing.

Break my pen,
kick me out of the den.
As long as there's paper somewhere,
I'll be writing there.

I like this, Grady. And I like your attitude (for the record, I haven't bought into the new idea that attitude is an ugly word). I think the good thing about the Den and the mix of people writing from different perspectives and places in the world is that there are readers coming from all of those same places, so everyone can find what they want here. I like your writing because it is direct. I prefer writing that is direct and leads me to deeper thinking about the topic, than writing that is so complex that I have to study it to figure out what it may have meant to the writer. And then there are others who are just the opposite.. there's something here for everyone.

This is beautifull, Grad! All of it...
But that last stanza screams for special attention:)
<Break my pen,
kick me out of the den.
As long as there's paper somewhere,
I'll be writing there.>

Gotta agree 101% M8, but I still think that, even so called amatuers can write with depth feeling passion and all that stuff that the so called literary genuius get accolades for. Just a little spelling or gramatical correction, like so what!
Doesnt change the passion.
How many of these genisues use spell checker LOL
Keep writing wont you, your great as far as I am concerned, coz you deal with real issues, not fanciful delusions. hehe.
Love Ch'erie

What a different read for me, as I am catching up on some of the poetry. I'm getting more comfortable with Authors Den - getting to know it better, and I know that I'm going to stay around for a very long time too!
