Hey, I won something!
Well, sort of at least. I essentially was featured in my schools literary magazine, a lot of poems and short stories, essays, photos, etc. and my poem "Revolt" was voted "Best in show" by the people who made the magazine!
I posted it here before, but i'm going to do it again, tell me what you think!
Take up arms! Join our cause!
Leave your thoughts with little pause
to change our world we need violence,
to quell the discontent and silence.
Let our voices be heard, joined together,
our actions judged for the better
so change is brought and tyranny destroyed,
so we can live! We must deploy
our might collected, orderly, yet strong.
To fight it out, victory or be gone!
Against oppression, corruption and greed,
To fulfill our passions, wants and needs.
We fight with force, with tooth and nail,
we resist their ways, but to no avail.
The cycle continues, in ebb and flow
as the tyrants sword swings the final blow,
our hopes dashed, our leaders maimed,
they take more from us, keep us constrained,
with every passing second, minute and hour
they regain what they lost; unquestionable power.
But ideas never die, immune to flames and steel,
they live on again, to never bend or kneel.
To the powers that grasp us by the neck
that drive us to chaos, insanity, heck;
they control us for as long as they can,
because the power of one, be woman or man
can break the hold across our throat,
and start again, the long revolt.
