I am a child in weaving poetry,
trying and trying my arms of bravery.
Hundreds, I posted to jail your eyes
to cease a moment; raise your vives!
Diving to swim in pools of poem challenges,
I plunge to learn and thread the verses
unafraid to anyone, competing from no one but myself!
A rainbow topics curve to tickle my brain
even sending triggers to unlock any gain.
Contests' title to the extent blow my peace
with the inspiration that afire my train.
It ignites me to ink water and blood masterpieces
though some of the rules crack my skull
but yes! YES, still, I am all enthralled!
A mile long smile I have if my poem
bags the top podium place
with my name only one on that rank
as if I have done a slam dunk.
This means I understood the rules
and satisfied the judges' muse
but if I plank and my name none at sight--
a little dismayed then later I'm alright
Those honorable mentions,
those N/A's, no place even,
that I don't really care!!! Bleh!
(smile with tongue out! lol!)
THOSE ENCOURAGED ME ANYWAY:
to write and write!
to inspire others!
to free my thoughts!
to soar on places!
to paint in words!
Never quitting 'til I gain some points,
adding and adding tons of vibrant hues
to slowly, slowly relish a life breathing write
with a hope that soon-- kindles again a good fight!
