16 (who?)
I have thoughts.
I have ideas.
I have the hope.
But I also have fear.
Fear that my efforts will cause me pain.
Fear that all of the effort will be in vain.
No one cares about the words in a story.
No one would ever know of the defeats or glory.
I create out of want and,
When I'm happy with the creation,
I try to share it with others,
To get a bit of appreciation.
No one bothers to view it,
For they see reading as a chore.
If I don't force myself to hope,
I won't care anymore.
What is being read at this moment is a collection of words. Sometimes, it's easier for some words to be noticed over others. Upon the analysis of this poem, most writers may understand the feelings being expressed through these collection of words.

In short, I have written a poem (almost unknowingly); will time be taken to actually view it, or will this be another deviation passed over?

Doubt it

Yes, I get the feeling too.

However, I find it helps to join up with fellow writers and people who do take an interest in reading: A.K.A. Friends.

Indeed, that does help at times. Sometimes, though, it's hard to find friends that are willing to share interests with you. Even with those that I know in college that write, they're always more interested in sharing their thoughts than hearing the thoughts of others.

I respectfully listen and advise, mind you, for I believe in the Golden Rule: Do Unto Other As You Would Have Them Do Unto You. I admit that they don't really listen to my own ideas, but I do respectfully listen to theirs.

In this sense, I wrote Creative Reason to help show other ways of enjoyment in this. Basically, if there are very few others that take interest in what you do, then you should at least take an interest and enjoyment in what you do. Create for creation's sake.


Anyway, thank you very much for taking the time to read this, my friend, and thank you for your insight.

I guess the saying, "Stick to your own kind," comes to mind from me. I had found a group of writers on this site who banded together and did their best to spread their word, yet I did little to mingle.

But as such goes, I shall look into Creative Reason to see if it peeks my interest.

And as my writing specs goes, I offer you Sci-Fi dreams.

"Creat for creation's sake" -Some things...were never meant to be created.

That thought just came skipping and singing into my head. Had to write it, you see.

Ah, no problem; it's quite understandable. To that, though, I do quote what has already been said in my signature:

All things were created for a reason, even if that reason is just for it to be.

Even if some things shouldn't be created, the creation itself has reason behind it; we don't always know what it is, though, but I'm sure that there is one.

Also, thanks for the offer. Though I'm not that deep into the whole Space thing, I do like the Future and Inventions aspect of Sci-Fi.

I'm more military Sci-Fi.
DMajorBoss Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2007  Professional Writer
Hmm...I'm not that big into that aspect of Sci-Fi, preferring current military stuff (Full Metal Jacket, for example); still, I do think it's cool if it's done right.

Well, yeah, you could look at writing like that (I know you don't; this is just a story). But hey, 37,000 pagehits and up can't be wrong, can it?
rtai Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2007
That's a good point...
DMajorBoss Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2007  Professional Writer
In truth, ANY number of page hits can be wrong. Simply because someone looks at your front page, it doesn't mean that they're looking at the work that you create.

I'm confident that there were people who came to my page, looked at how I only did writing, and then left.

Views on the outside of a page doesn't mean that you're own creations are being viewed. I would much rather know that people are reading my poetry and stories than know that they've come to my front page for a quick peek.

And having good friends around is still something that's always been right.


Anyway, thanks for the commentary on this one.
