    Contest Winner! Winner of Poetry Contest #273 -- Theme: "Being Human"

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest' started by theoriginalmonsterman, May 15, 2016.

    Congratulations! You won @Raiya! @Wreybies should be a long to award your medal. :)

    Thanks to everyone else as well for participating as well. It makes the poetry contests a lot more fun when we have a ton of people participating in them!

    As for now you guys can go take a gander at @Raiya's poem which will be posted below!

    __________________________________________________________________________


    To be or not to be

    To be alive is not to live,

    To have eyes is not to see.

    To hear is not to listen -

    To be is not to be.


    When one can wound with no remorse,

    Can rape and steal and lie.

    When one can kill his fellow man –

    Does truly horrify.


    To be human without humanity,

    Does clarify insanity.

    To be without a soul or call –

    Is simply not to be at all.
    __________________________________________________________________________

    I will have the next contest up a little bit later. Let me know if I should do another picture for the next contest or just use a written theme. Anyways see ya guys around! :D
