A new light

poet Anonymous

Poetry Contest

See below.....
It really feels like this positive, wonderful light is really shining in on DUP. There is so much new talent and renewed old talent and transformation, healing and redemption in this place...
So many strong souls, scarred yet roaring like lions-

What does that inspire in you?---

Oh--and have fun!!!

I am one of the newbies..
Don't know where(or how) I fit in in all this
But I feel good about this,
That has to be good right?

Its the sun I now await,
I've decided it's insomnia;
The fiery dis-ease..
Seizing my comfort
And trapping my sleep..

So I step outside
With a small carpet in hand
To lay and look up to the stars above
(My companions for tonight)
Shining million miles away
Their twinkling light piercing through the darkness..

Till morning comes
And they too(like all else) fade away..
Giving way to a new and brighter wave of light..
The undeniably beautiful light
Of the morning sun
As it rises at dawn
To break the night..
Bringing a new kind of light altogether..

I shall persist, I shall hang on
At least to last long enough
To witness all 'this'..
To see where 'this' is headed to..

(Thank God for insomnia)

No, no, you misunderstand me- It occurred to me that I had to change a word in my poem, in doing so, I mistakenly re-entered the same poem(but it was quoted this time around) making it 2..
I deleted it and wrote what I did..
Do you see what happened now? Sorry for this.. (Have it removed if you can)

Other sites have a "DELETE BUTTON", but DU doesn't.
DU used to have one but the Webmiz decided she couldn't trust
us to use it responsibly so she took it off without even
asking any of us members for our opinions. This still pisses
me off so every time it comes up I gripe about it. That said,
I dearly love 93% of DU and even the WebMiz as she reminds me
of this stubborn sister of mine who thinks she's right 87% of
the time when it's only 67%.

I've been here quite a while..
Not as long as you..
But I do see this change,
And I believe it to be true..

It almost dares me
To write something else
To let out the emotions
I have bottled on a shelf

This change
Makes me want to try..
Don't ask me though,
I really don't know why..

But this, DU..
Is my safe haven..
And I love this place..
Makes me worth saving

From SupHomeboi To DUP

I want to confess something to my new DUP family
At first I thought no one was feeling my poetry
I've entered competitions and I wanted to win
When I didn't win I've almost died within
I was about to give up and call it quits
Sitting in bed just having my bitch fits
Then I realized the vets had to lose a few times
Before they ever got their moment to shine
They stuck with it then finally they did it
That's what inspired me to keep being committed
But during my process I've learned there's more
To writing on this site than just winning awards
I don't need a trophy to validate my skill
Just write what I feel from the heart for real
Trust my ability and try to do my best
Show love to everyone and let God do the rest
Thanks for accepting me for all my true colors
Thanks for inspiring me to inspire others
Thanks DUP crew from the old to the new
I'll do what it takes to give back to you

Thank's so much for the great entries so far!
Rsena- Not new members--new poems I meant
Lemmy-you really do make me laugh-and the delete button issue-yes, I can see how that could be misused.
Peace and thank's to all of you , Miki

YOU LIGHT UP MY LIFE (A LOVE POEM)

You are my sun for your warmth

Heats me up so I will not freeze

In the Hell that is cold as ice

An uncaring society cares only for money


You are the moon who waxes and wanes

The tide of life keeps changing and churning

You keep me grounded with your common sense

You are my silver light that beckons me home


You reflect my mood, sunny or cloudy

We understand each other well

Forgive each other our weaknesses

Similars get along better, despite adversity


You are the star that entered my heart

The light never went out, it burns brightly

I do not know - if after death, we will be together

Or apart, maybe GODíS GREAT MERCY

Let us dance forever on silver lined clouds.
