  8. These truly are impressive. English has, and still is, been my weakest subject of study in my entire life.

    Though, when I see those who are amazing at it, it reassures me that literature will never die, no matter what people say! :)
  9. Cool! :) I will read these later. I'm not sure if I'll read them out loud, but it's an interesting suggestion. :)

  13. Congratulations Alt and .... the other person! I wish I was good at writing, but alas I am not, but here is my pity poem:

    Hit or miss, I guess they never miss huh?
    You got a boyfriend I bet he doesn't kiss ya
    He gon find another girl and he won't miss ya

    Again, congrats guys, everyone who took a stand to even submit a poem truly harnesses great talent!

  19. There's a good many nice pieces here. I'm entirely unsure of the criterium used that caused mine to be one of the two winners, but a lot of these give me the sense that I had a good run for my money. I'm nevertheless happy and grateful to be listed up there, especially for a contest whose choice of thematic really excited me. If anyone is curious as to what some of the metaphors mean or anything, I'd be happy to do a breakdown on my poem on my things I wrote thread.

    But yeah I'm really happy to see myself there. I'd like to thank a girl, myself, my family, my friends, a song, and climate change for giving me something to write about. And also the staff behind the contest who corrected my cluelessness of what a free verse is. And my own pretentiousness.
