In the intrest of love


I was awaked by love,

But with me, ghosts rose too.

Fears of lusts awakened long before I could articulate why they were wrong

In my pseudo virgin state, I was afloat, threatening to sink me, I felt stuck

But of a truth, He keeps his own, afloat

He got me to the alter

Fears gone.

I was awakened by love,

But with me, smells rose too

Faces long etched in my brain before I could find a place to belong

In my psuedo adult state, the lost infant, I had to trust a Father’s love.

That in His truth He keeps His own afloat,

Chases the ghosts away,

Mind freed

In the interest of love, life awakened,

And with it, hope arose too.

The Pangaea Prize


Just thought I would tell you guys about a poetry competition that is open on the Poet’s billow website. Anyone around the world can enter and you stand a chance to win a $100 and an interview to be featured on the website. You also stand to have one of your poems (if you win) nominated for a pushcart prize, among other things.

If you are considering making money out of writing or just want to start putting your poetry out there, this could be something to consider. Finalists will also get feedback on their poems so that’s something to consider because it gives you the chance to improve on your skills.

There is a $10 entry fee for each set of up to seven poems. For all other details visit http://thepoetsbillow.org/poetry-awards/the-pangaea-prize/ . The site seems genuine and I’m a regular visitor but please check for yourself before entering as I do not want be held accountable for any thing that might arise if you do decide to enter.
