By ignorant close minded fools: Yes

By people who don't suck: No.

I don't see how any one can be like "Oh man those words you wrote aren't manly cuz they express your feelings. You have no balls. RAAAG. I like breasts of various sizes but I can't express that using words so I bottle up my urges!!!"


I like breasts of various sizes and poetry.

Do you folks like folk?

No, poetry is a great way to express yourself.
I'm the same as I was when I was six years old
And oh my god I feel so damn old
I don't really feel anything

I imagine it depends on what you're writing about.

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

only if you buy into the stereotypes guys are supposed to live up to, but if you're not a total waste of space then no...

poetry is fine as long as you write about death, satan, ect...

In all seriousness, poetry is fine.
#13
No. As people mature they realise that the arts aren't necessarily for pussies. In fact, writing poetry will probably get you more respect than less. It's only considered a bad thing by ignorant fools, and who needs their opinion anyway? They're the ones shaving their heads and puffing on cancer sticks until they get hit by a car while drunk driving.

And songs are not 'poetry to music' for God's sake.
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

7% of what you say is affected by the words you use. so technically the most "sissy" poems could be more mascualine than chuck norris by the way theyre read. if ya get me..

No, but if you're bad at it and use big words and choose dramatic themes then people will think you're pretentious (or at least I will:p

No. Because if Shakespeare was alive, he'd be richer than Hollywood, more famous than Oprah, and have more women on his tail than all the pretty boys combined.

Patti Smith is personally my favorite poet.

If Shakespeare was alive today he'd be a zombie, and I just think none of the things you said are true.

This entire sentence describes Layne Staley. And Chris Cornell for awhile there.

Hello no, poetry is only "sissy" to people with closed minds and pro-masculine bastards

Without poetry there wouldn't be music. Poetry is an art form and is not "sissy" at all
#26
Yeah, Edgar Allan Poe is considered sissy... shut up I'm right

poetry itself isn't sissy. it really depends on what the poetry is about. If it's about some inner reflection on life, or anything else, then no it's not sissy, but the poet is constantly righting about....fluffy-ass kittens and saving the dolphins, then yeah, they're sissy. However, I hardly hear of fluffy kitteh/save the dolphin type poetry.

From the tips of their tails
To the ends of their nose
Along twitchy long whiskers
And small padded toes
I adore little kittens
They're simply divine
If the world was my way
They would all be mine.

Sissy, or awesome?
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

Umm... poetry is the basis of lyrics in music... so... if you see a guy who says its sissy and is singing fall out boy or whatever the hell the popular band is now, tells him that he's a hippocrite and explain why.

i've always found pop to be harder to play than metal... especially shred metal... it's just really fast tremolo picking and the occasional palm mute... and the only chords you have to worry about are power chords...

i think its very sissy when your dealing with spoilt middle kids who are trying to be tortured souls like Morissey when they have NOTHING to worry about.

poetry, on the whole, is not sissy at all, but it is when used as a way to ehance your already contrived image
#37
Poetry is the ultimate form of expression. If that's sissy, blow me. I'm a tough guy and love poetry.

I just don't like it when pretentious, academic types use it as a way to look intellectual.

Quote by BringMeTheCalm



I like breasts of various sizes and poetry.



I love the rising of the woman's breast
I'd love to motorboat that perfect chest.
To what do I owe this eternal debt?
Why, to poetry, it makes a woman wet.

I read from my journal to her, my favorite bits;
With the subtle hope, that she'll show me her tits.
Is it a bad thing if one of your testicles is larger then the other two?
