Welcome to POEMSPEAK, where poets and poetry lovers alike can come together to share a rewarding and thought provoking moment.
We at POEMSPEAK believe in the wonders that are expressed through poetry.
Poetry paints a picture in your mind and heart which opens up a creative and mentally sound tomorrow.
The winner of the poetry competition is Jill Marie Merillo. We will also be reading her poem on our radio show. Please enjoy "He is the Sun."
Another poem we will highlight on our radio show is by Jassim Khan.
He is the Sun
He is the sun, that shines on my despair
Radiating a warmth of love so rare
His strength pushes the clouds of loneliness away
While on his pure brightness my eyes stray
His rays reach my waiting arms
To caress my cool skin with his charms
Sometimes blinding me with a heavy haze
Turning my head with his simple rays
He is the sun, that shines on my cold heart
Quickening it with promises to never part
Although the somber rains always seem to appear
His light shines through my darkest fear
Even waiting through the melancholy night
Cherishing the thought of being in my sight
Lulling me to sleep with his reflected glance
Shining his love off the moon like a dance
He is my sun, that shines on only me
Burning my life with strength to be
Fueling my needs with love and care
Holding my hand when I just can't bare
He gives me shelter with his fierce heat
With his devotion no other can compete
Night and day he proves his love is strong
But I always feel cold when he's gone too long

Congratulations to our poetry winner Speechless, for the poem entitled, "Magic." (June 2010)
When life seems the worst
There is always someone living in more fear
Like the victims of hurricane Katrina
Or the disaster in Haiti this past year
We stress about a bad hair cut or the size of our legs
While people struggle without limbs, or hair on their heads
There are diseases and sickness, incurable cancer
To all these monstrosities there is yet to be an answer
People die every day from hunger or heat
There are kids who have never sat down to dinner, or had shoes on their feet
So how are we so ungrateful, we can’t begin to understand?
We freak if we chip a nail, or lose our summer tan
What about the families who have no place to call home
Or our elders who have seen everyone pass and are left alone
We don’t take into account the lives of passerby’s
You can’t tell what someone’s been through by just looking in their eyes
So before we judge a person based on their stature or stance
Be unlike the rest of society and give them a chance
We could donate some dollars or give up some time
But you might say your days are more valuable than mine
So what puts us on a pedal stool higher than the rest?
Nothing, at all. We’ve just been blessed
In this glorified world, people steal, people lie, people stoop so low and cheat
Cause the one thing were scared of, is facing defeat
We always want to be the best floating at the top
But what when all the superficial things come to a stop
When the smiles are cleared and we face something tragic
Think of the rest of the world, make a change, perform magic.
