Honorable Mention

Burning fire freezing air;
Heart’s desire feels impaired--
Nothing in this world is fair,
Burning fire freezing air.

Clip the crop with the sickle,
People fake; people fickle.
Greet the day and morning dew
With a smile not made for you.
Circumcise the newborn child,
Wonder why he grows up wild.
Send a hero straight to hell,
Say goodbye and wish him well.

Burning fire freezing air;
Heart’s desire feels impaired--
Nothing in this world is fair,
Burning fire freezing air.

I’m Held accustomed to believe
My heart is tattooed on my sleeve,
The haven of my holy dreams,
Is like a dying dove it seems.
Rest assured my rent is paid
On the ground where I’ll be laid.
Legend told of living art--
Rest in peace my beating heart.

Burning fire freezing air:
Heart’s desire feels impaired--
Nothing in this world is fair,
Burning fire freezing air.

- I do not like "Honorable Mention" it feels like a "comforting place ".... if that is contest poem you think about - but remember that others may like your poetry better than those who receive a higher placement in the contest - (I do not always agree with the" judge ") - Kurdt, this is a very good write - keep writing you are skilled !!!! - I wish you a great new week :) - oxox // Anne-Lise :)

OH! This is such an astounding piece. This is not an honorable mention...this is a top prize piece. You have voiced your emotions so well! You have played with words and made them do your bidding...Burning fire freezing air. Nothing ever does seem fair. This is a community and which community is ideal? NONE! Please keep on going strong. Don't let anything impair your heart's desire. Been there...Fight back!
