Biography

I think I could turn and live with animals,
they're so placid and self-contained,
I stand and look at them long and long.
They do not sweat and whine about their condition,
They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins,
They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God,
Not one is dissatisfied,

not one is demented with the mania of owning things,
Not one kneels to another,

nor to his kind that lived thousands of years ago,
Not one is respectable or unhappy over the whole earth.


("Song of Myself", Walt Whitman, 1819-1892)

Your comment have falsely accused me of being David, a friend and good teacher. I believe your intention is as dishonorable as the fellow mediocre "poets" who have tried with little evidence or success to prove in their delusional minds that I am David Neves. This I believe, comes from their unwillingness to accept my abilities and they try to tarnish my reputation as a young writer. The "love" which you are offering is as false as your inability to see truth. When an adult, such as yourself, and many others here brand me false titles... it is your intergrity and character that is being challenged. Take that into consideration and remember that I have the common decency to use such respectable tones to an elder. Please send my regards to the former members of Original Poetry who cannot accept that a sixteen year old has more ethics than they. To the falsehood which they have created on a site dedicated to poetry: a pure and subliminal element corrupted by former members of this site. If you need assistence, I'm sure David will help you...Quang V.

For those of us here who require evidence... [ oh ye of little faith] here it is. I'm sure Mr. David Neves, my poetic teacher, cannot create a false school district newspaper and insert my picture into the text. http://www.aliefisd.net/www/Alief/site/hosting/Communications%20and%20Public%20Relations/Archives%20of%20newsletters/CommunicatorMarch2010.pdf Go to Page 7 and on the left you will see me... a high school student. Enough? With all due respect, this is better evidence than anyone here [past and present] have produced. I am so sick of people who try and try [unsuccessfully] to prove that I'm someone else when their words are so worthless. Now correct me if I am wrong, but I thought both of you [Dancinghawk and Jaded] have left. If not, and you want to support the growth of a better Original Poetry... [b]Stop this nonsense and restore poetry to Original Poetry[/b] [and I mean both sides]. Jaded stop your false accusations against me, it reallllly getting old. How would you feel it if I accused you of being Dah or someone else masquerading as a woman from Las Vegas? I really do not care about your former life, as long as you come to this site with the ideals of poetry. To me, that is honorable enough... poetic is pure, so the writers should stride to be as noble as the poems. Quang V.- Helios [b]Postscript: Dancinghawk[u]Its Helios not "Helios"[/u][/b] If you do not believe that a sixteen year old can ask for peace in such a manner... you better believe it.

In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
