Thanks for the comment, and you are giving me an idea. Maybe we should have an add to favorites feature. So you can have your own collection. What thinks?

Great idea Ivan. Till now I've just downloaded what I really liked. Hence the archive from which I was able to send stuff to you after the server crash.

it would be definitely of great use, till now i was feeling blessed with the track box :) as opposed to book marking it. You can ajax it on every ad page, so that it does not interfere with commenting, thanks a lot!

Corrections are actionz in motion,
motivated by the movement.
People pushing liberation
out there to the nations.
Opression is here ,
ready to snash your oppotunity away.
living you hopeless and faithless in you father land...

Hi everyone, my name is Cindy in Pretoria. Am a poet writer and am good at what i do. I want to send one of my poems to you but i just dont have a clue where to begin. Could you please give me your address, I would realy appreciate it.Reply on 078 0383 159 please.

Hi Cindy

I am Ayanda from P.E i wouldn't mind to read one your poems, telling you the truth if i were you i would look some place else to send your poems. Reason is when you send a poem to lentswe you don't know who is going to receive it meaning you dont have a contact person, secondly if your poem doesn't win what do they do with it, because surely you would like to keep your work. And lastly lentswe focuses on poems written about special days like HUMAN RIGHTS DAY, FREEDOM DAY, E.T.C you know what i mean. They don't give attention to the real poets because we write expressing our feelings trying to show to others how we feel and how we see the behaviour of the surroundings around us. We speak for those who can't speak for themselves, we can't always write about trageties that have occured in the past. We are the grandson's of the great poet " William Shake Spear"

hellow all poets

I am Kuhle in the Western Cape/Stellenbosc, I'm also a poet I express my feelings through poetry , words of peaise to God and comforting othersbut just like Ayanda it seems as if Lentswe is about these important holidays. I also want to show my talent to the world and I would like to be a proffessional poet.

hey guys my e-mail changed to poetickay, check this out:

DOOMED

By the time of adolescence
Icommenced the DOs of the ancient
I caught sight now keen to take part
But fate terminated my destiny
Left me scar-ed apart

By the time we conquered domination
no tribe wa s left not recognised
we talked in style.
Civilisaton demolished my father's best known intuition
Civilisation tore down my mother's best loved alterations
My peersand I never knew lot indeed
But now that knwledge spreads atoms of disgrace to me
My father's drink is of a morden taste

Who has ever foreseen this act of a new beginning
now to the end, that I could speak such a vivid tongue
With whom shall we speak therefore
To transport back the times of ancient deans to the times of mortality.
turn up the light, turn up the light. . . .
the light on Africa
We are doomed for dome
AFRICA! Doomed

hi i'm asanda johnson and i'm an unknown artist but live in the motion of words.

we got in this world...
when it spun crazily
when it drifted clumsily
when it echoed annoyingly
and when it quieten solically

i arborted reality from the gaze of ,my eyes
i dug fantasy with hope of "never happen"
i stood and tried to freeze the moment of truth
cause the oath of fantasy is now broken

so here and now
my mind raced akwardly
my vision became mistily
my uttering diverted into tongues
as i slowly gazes far into internity

how easy is one's mind poisoned
eating and not knowing knowlegde is the fruit of wisdom
to be eaten carefully and digested fully

i would have bonded with the trio
viraly sustained
healthy, sickly and deadly

we would be joined in blood steams like river streams joined to the ocean
we would meet the eve of iternal sleep
so here i am, i'm living,i'm leaving
the unfinished story
