**Example for my contest.**


chirp chirp!

Visions of my past why are they following me?

Leave me the h3!! Alone,

Let me be, the earth is my home. 

I am not willing to fly free allowing my deception to roam free.

A passion I no longer see.

I find myself lying on this grass all alone.

Tears caused by my saddened past.

How can I hear the ocean waves, only trees surround me?

A life I cry why me? 

I have no guide to show me how

I have been all alone before the age of one.

I have nothing to call my own. 

What is that chirping sound? 

Allowing me to live knowing my mother, did not care. 

An embryo in her womb, safe in your care. 

My mother's destruction pulled me out of a life that was not for me.

Where is my guide?

Crickets chirping soundly, how is that supposed to comfort me?

Do you not care for me? Why do you send the smallest insect to laugh at me? 

Every time I fall to the ground, a chirping is the only sound. 

I'm not ready to be rescued, I have not found my final stop.

Why is this insane insect in front of me?

Is that an annoying sound just for me?

What a silly way to show me who and what you can be!

Thinking of you in the biggest form.

An insect I can hardly see.
Why did it not come to me, on wings?

Do you mock all those times I fell onto the ground? 

It was not the ocean waves I heard. 

It was always the sounds of millions of crickets around me. 

Showing me your power can come in any form, shape, and size. 

Next time stings your way into my life like a bee.

.                  By; p.d.

    When i saw the title I thought this might be about that gentle english game here throw a hard ball at each other and don't run around a lot lol. I have not found your worst ever poem yet my Sweet Dark Friend and this certainly isn't it. I like the bee ending, just gives it that sting in the tail / tale. Take care, Richard

    Again, I only see a problem in the ending lines. The "bee" is completely disconnected to the poem. BUT, I like it!! Do you think I need help? LOL!

    i hear crickets over here now, lol ;) -- & hmm actually I was being haunted by the karaoke singing and wanted to dream ;) but yup can be taken the other way around if you want! & hmm I don't know that song? speaking of singing, I have good reason to believe that me singing isn't too much fo a good idea because it can rain pretty hard... lol

    quite an interesting write you have put out here P D>

    actually it's not ALL bad. it needs some work and it will be a masterpiece. your imagry was understandable . and i felt you as you wrote the words and told some of your story. and joined you in some of your defeats. to face God after al the one you fight against. the bible says "i will restore what the locust have eaten" and thats the chirping you hear. rise up surender to God and wait and see. john

    P D.The more I read this and absorb your words I can't agree with you.There is alot to your poem.I feel your sadness and your cry for help,although you have tried to add a slight touch of defiance at the end.I can't help but like this piece.I'm reminded of the cricket acting as poor Pinnochio's conscience and guide in Walt Disneys film.Maybe that was in your subconscious when you wrote it,hence the insect.I love crickets and I love this,sorry.P D.Glad you enjoyed my Dance.... Thanx. Love June
