Poetry


Iron

Metal burns those who live in fairy realm. Why then, would I be hurt by metal’s touch As if I were in oven or in kiln? Why would my bones break o’er steel wire, such That my aching jaw and tired smile fail? What ever did I do that brought me this? My smile frozen, my...

The Journey

The longest voyage of its time went through the Black Sea, But he was only looking for something Golden To reclaim what was lost – more important than a sandal To stop greed and power from corrupting the throne.   A terrible bodily smell made their husbands...

A Choice Was Made

A choice was made Not by one but by two A choice was made And it changed so much Did it matter if neither was sober? This choice was made But a third party came in The choice was made but The person only caused problems Is there justice in the way people can just come...

Prayers

When I pray I ask for forgiveness When I pray I ask for help When I pray I want for something When I pray I speak in truths When we pray we acknowledge problems When we pray we hope for change A time to pray has come for us A time to pray has come to bare For these...

Launched

When I was quite young, I found myself so very far flung; Blasting rocket ship in space – Color-filled and yet no happy place ‒ And though it made a comfy bed, It was quite uncomfortable for my head; Flying on and soaring by – No, not like that Super-guy, ‒ I widened...

The End of the World

All these people, telling me to choose Which day to pick from the setting of my moods Lifted the life and the breath we take To learn from our past, our biggest mistakes All these people they tell me to choose Which day to pick from the setting of the moon When an...

The Fall

  One day things are fine with no problem in sight The next day a cloud swallows the light The panic sets in followed by fright How can this happen, how can this be? Some people look to a God we can’t see Asking for answers and begging for godly insight Sometimes...

Love is love

Love comes into your life like sunshine through clouds Piercing and punching and tearing through With force and with might it breaks through your guard To find someone smitten is not very hard Love is a monster that devours ambitions Love is a love, unknowing and...

The End – 1st Place Winner, Justice Poetry Competition

The end is near, it as I feared Our time has ended, it’s very clear Like seasons passing we move on Wondering how to weather the storm We once were united, together as one The end has come, like a shot from a gun Unknown territory, unknown fate Our love was strong,...

You Don’t Know

Never judge a girl who’s a little easy with guys You have no idea what her growing up was like You don’t know if her father was there at night You don’t know if her mom treated her right Trying to break the cycle, the bitter abuse Never give a girl a reason to blame...

Devil’s Game

 The white chess squares formed an “x” on the board, as if trying to cross out the black that so greatly outnumbered them. It was unfair, Lisa thought. Unfair the tiny, snow-white squares had to stand up to the overbearing black.   “How is anyone supposed to win...

EXIT

The red light glared angrily in his eyes as he blinked away the sweat and tears that gathered there. He had seen this before. It hung lazily, inoffensively, above the door, but the blood colored sign sent mighty waves of heat over his body. The EXIT sign gave off the...

Home Sickness

The evening was playing out exactly as Ethan McCollum had hoped it would. He’d began the night with one goal, a mantra of sorts, which he’d repeated to the neatly-groomed image in the cabinet-mirror above his sink: Redeem Yourself. He had known that tonight, the night...

Innocence

Something happened while I was on holiday. I know I was away because the statement—my statement—said so. What holiday, I couldn’t say; all I can remember is that the food was good and that it was the first time I heard the bell. Now I hear it every morning, just...

Being Popular: The Double Standard

Why do others feel the need to set a standard for fitting into society? You have to look a certain way, talk a certain way, act a certain way. People change who they are just to become “cool” or “popular” in today’s culture. It can make an individual sacrifice an...

Inspiration

Inspiration is an interesting thing. It can cause people to do things they did not think possible. It can change the course of our lives, or it can create bonds between people that are extremely close or never met before. To inspire someone is to have one of the...

I Wasn’t Gay… Or At Least, I Thought I Wasn’t…

I quickly forced myself onto the Brooklyn train as it started rolling. Although the train was flooded with people, it was easy for me to find an empty seat. There was one corner where a young boy, Adam, with ripped jeans and a worn-out hoodie, would sit. There were...

Just One – 1st Place Winner, Justice Prose Competition

The steering wheel’s cracked leather was cold against his forehead. John sighed. The heading of the newspaper sprawled out on the passenger’s seat ran “November 5.” The same date he saw most every night. It had been five years now. Five years since the first November...
