    Dear Poemhunter Team,

    I've heard this is the last day for the Poetry contest. I would appreciate very much if You included my poem " To Love & Poetry" .
    This is just a way of sharing with other peers or novice poem writers. In the process we all have fun and surely can learn something
    from each other, our own cultures and views. Thanks in advance!

    To Love & Poetry

    Dwelling in the realms of verse
    Protected by God's Mercy
    Love speaks in a way diverse.
    It pays homage to courage,
    Inner strength, soul pilgrimage!

    It echoes chants, holy and pure,
    Descending upon us quietly
    Strengthening days to endure.
    It stays in little gestures, cheerfully
    Feeding our lines delightfully.

    This immense ocean of poetry
    Allows it to deeply immerse into
    Waves of sweetness and mystery.
    Herein a lighthouse was seen
    We'll linger over it for good, serene.

    im sharni and i'm 14. i call this " aftermath" this poem is based on me. thanks :)

    my curtains are shut and i'm all alone,
    this darkness i see is my only home.
    but where else am i meant to go?
    in this world i'm still unknown.

    i feel my heart fill with pain,
    tears run free just like the rain.
    i wish this would just go away!
    shadows torment me everyday.

    If only mummy didn't leave,
    but she would still hurt me,
    was it 'cause i didn't say please?
    either way, i still grieve.

    she's gone forever and this is the aftermath....

    How can a Man
    Love me,

    How can a Man
    Love me,
    When I don’t love him?

    How can a Man
    Love me,
    Without limit?

    How can a Man
    Be faithful to me
    In spite of my unfaithfulness?

    How can a Man
    Tell me he loves me
    In my unfaithfulness?

    What manner of Man
    Would run after me
    Even as I go astray?

    What manner of Man
    Will call to me
    Even when I am so far away?

    What manner of Man
    Will stretch out his hand
    To rescue me?

    What manner of Man
    Will forgive me no matter
    How many times I wrong him?

    Why would a Man
    Want me despite
    My filthy attire?

    Why would a Man
    Of high class come down
    To my level just to be with me?

    Why would a Man
    Sacrifice all He has
    Just for my happiness?

    Why would a Man
    Give up all He has
    For my freedom?

    Why would a Man
    Endure my pain for my comfort
    After what I have done?

    Why would a Man
    Pay a debt
    He never owed?

    So loves the universe
    His passion is deeper than oceans

    Higher than the heavens,
    Reaching farther than the stars
    In the sky

    His amity has no bound,
    No limit, no expiration date,
    His love never grows sour

    His affection is merciful
    Full of compassion,
    Grace, every good thing

    So unfaithful
    As I am,
    He still is faithful

    So ungrateful
    He still provides

    Going my own way
    Yet He, my love, calls out to me
    Takes my hand.

    Is so great.

    Your embrace
    Is so warm
    And comforting.

    Your voice
    Is so sweet
    And soothing.

    You are The Almighty,
    All wise, You are The Kingdom
    Of the heavens and the earth

    You are the One
    Who gives life, causes death
    And He who is able to do all things

    Which of the blessings
    Of your God will you deny?

    DREAM ON (By Evon Small)

    Fade away, drift away
    Has life taken away your dream?

    Once was sparkling with hope and endless dreams
    Now it’s so hard, just trying to hold on

    Once was sitting on top of the world
    Today you might be praying not to hit rock bottom

    Investments lost, relationships destroyed
    So many dreams were achieved yet lost

    Once had money and friends in abundance
    Today it’s a struggle to find just one

    Sometimes it’s best not to share your dream
    Because there are some, who do not want you to dream

    There are some who feel you will never achieve
    They do not accept you or expect much of you

    Life is a cycle
    It will come back to you, so dream on

    You may not have the answer
    So try one more time

    You cannot see the future
    So why should you give up now
    Don’t stop dreaming

    So many unfulfilled dreams,
    We cannot stop trying
    Don’t stop dreaming

    Are there any competitions going on?I just love the fun of them. The themes.. The waiting for the judgement. I often don't mind the placing I get. Just like the fun of it all.

    If there's not any, that's ok. If you could just read through my poems, comment what you think of them?That would be great. Thank you. :)

    hey guys! ! ..i am kamalendu...a girl of 16...i hav enterd this contest a poem...read it and pls tell ur opinion, , ,

    He@rt Beat$
    Friendship is the heart beat
    of everyone.
    Without which ones life
    is incomplete.

    A beat without which your
    day pass like years.
    A beat without which you
    are nothing.

    A beat whose laugh can
    make all your sorrow goes away.
    A beat whose touch can
    make you asleep.

    A beat who stands with you
    when you are alone.
    A beat who understands you
    when all the world deny.

    A beat who silence kills you
    more than any weapon.
    A beat which u can feel
    all along.

    A beat which says
    ' I'm there no matter
    how far you fall'
    Kamalendu Menon

    I entered this poem in to a contest I wanted to know who like it fill free to comment to.

    I Want a Man Who

    I want a man will be exciting to be around. I want man who will make me jump for joy everytime I see him. I want a man who will make me smile everyday.

    I want a man who will always make you laugh on my bad days. I want a man who will make time for me when I need a friend.

    I want a man who sit and listen to my words when I'm hurt. I want a man who will not play games with my heart. I want a man who will always be true to me even in the hard times.

    I want a man who will talk to me all night just to make me smile. I want a man who will be the one i can count on to be there for me no matter what.

    I want a man who will be the one i can put my trust in. I want a man who will love me as one but also be a best friend who will never let me go.

    I want a man who has fun and loving personality. I want a man who will lay with me with a smile and embracing me with hugs. I want a man who will be the one i can just hang out with. I want man who has a great since of humor. I want a man who says I'm his princess forever and always.
