Contest Entry


by Raul1

I know the curiosity about your life,
everyone misunderstood you,
they didn't know what you were about,
you thought of yourself as a failure.

It's time to understand you
were a winner,
most skeptics didn't know it,
soon you'd win.

You had so much to live for,
you needed to think positive,
things would turn out great for you,
but you didn't know it yet.

Several years later you would
be satisfied,
your glory would come,
if you played the waiting game.

One day, you would see that your
irrational thinking of yourself was selfish and ridiculous 
you would overcome those thoughts.

I know that you thought
that life was impossible for you,
but you'll be convinced
it won't stay like that.
I know that it didn't look like it would,
but you'll see.
I swear.
You would accomplish your dream,
and be successful.

LITTLE me contest entry

I was thirteen years old when I lived in Miami Lakes Garden. I never thought I would amount to anything. People misunderstood me and I thought I would never be successful in life and that my life would be a happy one. I was wrong. I have found success as a writer and now in my life I am happy. I would tell my younger self to hang in there for life will get better and he will be rewarded because he has solved his issues in life, so far. The little me at that time, I was misunderstood, but not anymore. He went to creative writing classes, studied hard in writing, and worked hard on writing websites. He became successful. He made amends to his childhood friends who he had hurt, and they forgave him. He entered in writing contests and won multiple first places. He became successful and is a winner now. Before, his life was difficult because he had no social life with friends his age, but now his life is a happy one. He has many friends today.
