It is something that when I was in high school
I won my first poetry award on this month in 2005.
This happened for three years in a row.
I was the Executive’s Choice for three years in a row.
Poetry.com thought a lot of three of my poems.
Still I earned nothing from my poetry,
yet I saw that my poems were good enough to make it.
So after the whole fall out with Poetry.com
I branched out on my own and tried to start my own business
and eventually I plan to make it all work out someday.
I do recall that my first ever poem was titled “The Peace Prayer”
which I unfortunately lost sometime ago,
yet before that I managed to read it to people at the Youth Group
and read it to my mom who is a poet herself
and she thought that it was good.
So after that experience and seeing that Johnny Cash himself
won a Poetry.com award I was ready to try it for myself
to see what I could achieve if I worked on my poetry a little bit more.
So I published to them and I won a award within a short period of time.
I was thrilled because it was my first award not of the Christian Academy.
I knew what it was like to win awards,
yet this was so different for me.
I was like so in the sky,cloud nine.
I was so overjoyed.
I was no arrogant.yet so overjoyed at the time.
It is something winning awards for doing good in school,
yet it is a totally different thing to win awards for your own work.
If you ever win a award outside of school let the feelings come.
You do deserve it.
