I wrote a rap, but I don't know if that counts...
ATS, what say you? I'd Rap considered Poetry at a diff. Pace?
I think so...

Yes... rap does count as poetry. In fact, it's the saving grace of the medium in this R&R 21st Century Schizoid Man.

Good thread. I have many poems, but the one i will post
on here is called "the square" Its basically about the street
i was brought up in. This street, the houses were in a square.
In the middle was a playground, and a small grassy field. The
unique thing about growing up here, was the fact that so many
kids grew up there who were the same age as me. We were basically
like brothers. But as time goes by, we grow, move away, get married etc
but they are still my brothers, even though i may not see them as much
i would like too.

The square 
my sweet home 
where my friends lay hollow 
into the night with sorrow 
and staying there with time borrowed. 

The square 
where i used to live 
so many things i would give 
to be back there 
touching souls without a care. 

The square 
an emotional storm 
dark clouds pass the tempers 
and through the wall attention seekers 
for sure nothing new. 

The square 
warm with summer 
so glad to be above us without suffer 
my friends whatever the distance 
we shall always be close.

This is a short poem. It is a sad love story of mankind and the eternal struggle.

Here's my entry

Wrote this back in 2006 and it was inspired by true events.

Some really good entries I've read and it is an honor to be in a contest with such talented folks

I wrote a poem that fits the theme of this competition/contest, however, I posted it before realising that there was a contest on. Should I re-post the whole thing in a new thread, with the title amended to include the [CTPWC] mark?

Ok,
I need help.
I have always loved to write but I am new to poetry.
My last entry "What if She Would Have Said Yes" was only supposed to be for the comp.
I figured if I wrote about something that was close to my heart it would make a better poem.
Here is my problem.........
By the time I finished with it, I realized that this was about more than the contest.
I know it is not a great poem but to my mom and I it is our personal story.
As stated in the thread, here.... www.abovetopsecret.com...,
I would like to give my mom this poem on my birthday in a couple of weeks.
It would mean the world to me if you could show me or point out punctuation or other problems in the poem.
If need be I will even withdraw it from the contest.
I just want it to be great when I give it to her.
Thanks,
Quad
