Fall 2020 Poetry Contest Winner

                   An Open Book 

I write the society of a world gone wrong 

The hate, the crimes and the lives now gone.

I write the reality the whole world reads

The scars, the wounds, the pain that bleeds.

I write the melody the whole world sings

The laughter, the tears, the simple things.

I write the love in a world gone cold

The dreams, the wishes and stories untold.

I write the words I placed in a poem

For all the world we call our home.

I read the society where lies belong

Shame, secrets and a shattered song.

I read the reality this whole world needs

The survivor’s in courage forever now leads. 

I read the melody the whole world brings

The freedom of birds, queens and kings.

I read the love this world does hold

Hidden in cracks, waiting to unfold.

I read the words I placed in this poem

From my heart and straight to your home.
