            When I was a small child,
my life was filled with grief, sadness, and tragedy;
and in time my thoughts and words turned inward,
and I became fascinated with nature.
There were times I was found talking to flowers or trees,
and the past called to me from old crumbling buildings;
            when I was a small child.

            Written in my poems,
are experiences from my own personal twisted life; 
oh, at the beginning words just fell onto white,
but later my writing style became more meaningful.
I have lingered long with form, rhyme, and syllables,
and have pondered the writings of the late great poets;
            and wrote my poems.

            Their writing inspires me,
but, I rebel like a wild vine growing in nature;
oh, I like my poems untidy and messy, uncontrolled,
perhaps I write non-metrical on purpose.
My poetry repeatedly tells a true story,
and each day I study the style of late great poets;
            and I write and write.

            At last I have found my Zen,
I can see quite clearly the entire map of my life;
with those past destinations so dark and scary,
but, some so lovely and wonderful.
I have the power to select where my mind wanders,
yet, would I change one single day of my life- NO
            for it has made me a writer.

I so admire how you let it all out, as well as how you have stayed true to your youthful nature and innocence. After all, isn't that part of the plan? I.e., to preserve who we are, building on our core being, adding here, pruning there, and bringing out the best we have to offer?! Isn't THAT what God wants of each of us? (--Not some mechanical, meaningless compliance)… ~ This from an Orthodox Jew, perhaps surprisingly, but I had a one-in-a-million Rebbe. Best wishes, Gershon

Thank you Gershon, for the great comment, I really have stayed to to myself as a writer, for I write from my heart, no afraid to lay my soul bare. Sadly, I did not place in the contest. Oh Well ~
