Well, it doesn’t look like you’re struggling to get views but it is likely these are more from casual observers….Try not to think of it in terms of a social media setting. Although this site is interactive, people are drawn to what appeals to them and unfortunately, that interest may not be reciprocal. For what it's worth, l suggest you experiment with some different poetic forms or styles –if for no other reason than to say that you tried it.

so what if they may think this sappy but this type of idealism is my groove.
I'll have to read your others as my curiosity has been aroused.

Splendidly packaged poem ...
(my apologies for only now discovering it )
-this gently plods and prods to a satisfying conclusion.
Bravo!

Sure thing, when something catches my eye I like to let the writer know they’ve produced something of merit and value.

I’ve yet to even get a vote in the contests but, like a boxer, I keep coming back for more. It is interesting to learn about your exploits and l am fascinated that you have this creative side to you too. A good boxer is balanced in offense and defense and I feel that in writing a good poem, there must be an equal blend of the right elements as well.

Fare well in your hand-to-hand endeavors!

I’m sure that there is a short list of parties who are aware of the specific scene or situation the poet is depicting and though it is difficult to identify with, or get a handle on exactly what is being presented as a neutral reader, nevertheless -like any art you may not ‘get,’ you still know that there is something there- you know it’s art....this is definitely poetry---good poetry.

Breezing by again ..wanted to let you know that I voted for this back when it was entered in July of last year. I still see something in it. A message of hope and promise always warms my soul.

Are you really an amateur boxer or just like to spar for the exercise..?

The fortunes of a few mean less for the rest.
Seems you are hitting on power and social struggles which are emblematic of humans since civilization began.
Quite concise and on-point Ludy.

indeed and those death cries (no matter by whom) are as unfortunate as the reprehensibleness of meaningless conflict.
I would have commented regardless but it is encouraging that the site is now offering rewards for increased interaction....hopefully bring the community a little closer.
good day Susan!

I have to say, this makes me think about how the killing in warfare seems unnatural compared to the ‘predator vs prey’ of the animal world. But then, one must wonder where the ‘killer instinct’ even originates from...

I cannot speak to the former owners other than they are just that, previous owners ....The poetry.com domain got picked up by the Stands4 folks in early 2021 and from what l gather, our running much better than the old rendition, --but it is different than probably what you remember, l’m sure. And yes, it is moderated....

Don’t fret just yet....Though these incentive bonuses are a brand new thing (and I don’t know much about them) I do know a little about the dynamics of the site and it just may be that the master site has not been fully updated to reflect your progress....in my experience, it seems that if you do anything new after 8pm (roughly) it won’t get recorded until the next day l, so just bear with them and be looking for a notification or email.

l believe the ‘you’ the poem is directed at is the reader (in a rhetorical manner) such that, whichever stanza’s conditions may apply to YOU, you may identify with most. You decide for yourself which ‘you’ you may be or become while you can.

This feels also, like a dignified testament on reflecting for reflection's sake. But it delivered a message I was hoping for -for the most part after an appealing trip through the speaker's mind....I notice your use of repetition in some of your others but deemed this one to have one of the stronger endings due to the device.

....also, this poem called to mind the Zak Brown lyric, "it's a winding road when you're in the lost and found." Not sure if you're familiar ,but I thought it was apropos.
