Poets of WTE,

Another IC mod gave me an idea a few months back, about creating breath of the month.. Thus would ential all the poets to join, and create a poem of 16 stanza's... about anything, or maybe I give a topic for ya'll to work with..Then I will have judges vote on them, and who ever with the most votes for their poems, can be breath of the month for WTE.. now the winner's poem that won, will have their poem posted as a sticky for the month that he or she won.

As for who the judges will be, I'm gonna have to speak to a few other's on here.. 'm thinking the other two wte mods, tha killa and blackrain...

YOUR THOUGHTS??????


anybody with suggestions, please don't hesitate to share em' with me.

    I think that's a great idea, tupacfan!! It'd definitely make me wanna write and it would also be great if we did have a topic to stick to, maybe some months we'd have a topic and others we would not.

    Or the topics that you choose can be interpreted in ways, i.e. your feeling at the very moment; so that it doesn't box the writer into discussing something that they're unfamiliar with, but all the same, it's great to challenge!

    Thank you for your suggestion, I will definitley give that a serious consideration Ruff Draft. Sticking with a topic would be nice. And we can change that from month to month.

    I agree, it's a great challenge for all of us..

    Again, thanks for your suggestions ruff draft! preciate that!

    The sun shines on my heart
    I feel it radiate
    The darkness parts
    It beats loves rhythm
    Can you feel it in the streets?
    Can you tap it with your feet?
    The forest of shadows
    Grows ever so dark
    When you let them in
    To taste a golden heart
    They try to hold you down
    Tell you your not good enough
    To move through the sound
    The sound of misery
    The sound of addition
    The very sound that takes your spirit and kills it
    When God lives within, they can’t win
    God is greater than you and me
    Greater than the demons that live in your head
    They can’t sing the song of love
    They can’t find the beat
    They don’t have its rhythm
    They will feel defeat
    When they hear the song of LOVE
    Tapping to joy, tapping for happiness
    Making God tap is toes
    Giggling and laughing at his foes
    God knows a person’s intent
    If it falls short, he reinvents
    I’ve tasted death and lived through it
    I’ve been held down and said screw it
    Now is my time to rise up
    Are you ready for a big cup of
    I will not shut the fuck up

    Riots how can I keep quiet
    My soul yearns to preach
    And reach anyone
    There are plenty of us
    Giants who triumph
    When we're in a fire
    Justice shoulda been
    Coulda been
    My next To kin
    28. Not Mexican
    Old and young
    Freddy gray
    Rest in peace
    Your life was ochrestrated
    Cuz pd was Masonic decorated
    Glad some who hate it

    Sensual
    Ice
    Rubbed all over your body
    Carmel cubes consumed
    Laying on a bed of rose petals
    I caress
    You feel more comfortable
    Slowly undress
    You wiggle
    tickled
    As satin panties come off
    The energy electric
    Potential motion becomes Kinetic
    Hearts sweat tears
    Minds bodies souls
    All Powerful together

    Rain drops hit the window ceil
    Thunder and lightning
    Roar visible through the window pane
    Love not lust
    Enchanting how in this situation
    We became tied to one another
    Passions blasting
    Climax in actions
    Thrusts closed caption
    Touch
    Orgasims
    At last it has happened
    Thankful for a birth
    Finally it's happened
    Pleasure and excitement
    Turns to quietness

    Zzz of silence
    Thankful for you
    Grateful to be faithful
    Thank you's to the Angels
    To the Heavens
    To the Most High
    & 9 months later
    A burst of new life

    The time between was all but a dream
    Reality a mix of peace
    Pride power
    Serene Difficulties
    6 years deep
    To one night of love
    To create our love
    Our blood shall run everlasting
