My piece for the competition. :)

Who You Are...

 

Come to me

Like angels from the clouds

I will bow.

 

What work is it worth

To be who you are,

And to suffer, you know how.

 

Fallen, scarred and burned.

At midnight they will jump.

And await the loving silence, they have earned.

This is christian...one of the judges of the competition.

I always believed that quality always beats quanity. This is an example how you don't need alot of words to give a poem a voice. This was terrific and I loved the way you structured the poem.

Excellent work!
