    This is good...most enjoyable. Must thank PH for organising it. It's not about the money part of it but the spirit behind it. Happy hunting all you erudite poets: -)

    it would be greatly appreciated if you would take the time too read my collection. It is in a sense meager but it is of great importance too me, thank you. although i do warn you a great many of my poems are extremely dark and morbid in the most ghastly sense. i am a young aspiring writer and all constructive criticism is of great value

    Friend's Character

    My friends read a lot
    morning day and night
    They love each other
    But always ready to fight

    Some are real
    And some are fake
    Always they want
    Is a sweet break.

    Some begin to cry
    In minor jokes
    Some are always happy
    Doing their works

    Some want Nepali
    Some needs Maths
    Some love English
    With crooks and cracks

    [...My friend says...]
    Somewhere in the world
    Lives an angel
    She is always ready to solve tangles....

    " The Dreams of Kings"
    When the hills and the mountains someday are made low
    And rough places made plain, and untended seeds grow
    When the peacocks take flight and the crooked made straight
    Until Justice rolls down like an avalanche quake
    When the Great become evident and mute become relevant
    The New become citizens the few become regiment
    When proof becomes eminent, and all the Gold's bright-
    Consumed by the bloom and hues of true light
    Devalued and weightless reveals its true worth
    And Nature, refreshed, conceives its New birth
    When the kids on my block can have a true choice
    And the armed and afraid stop shooting school boys
    When the leaders stand up and refuse to stand down
    When the children man-up and my Sisters man-down
    When the Sunsets are East instead of West-bound
    When the greedy and proud repent with head down
    Til the day every poison and venom tastes sweet
    We can claim our restraints no more and break free
    When the Dream of one King becomes true as plain sight
    That’s the day when the poets will no longer write.
