Ooh yes, I'd like to enter my poem "Afterthoughts." You can either go to this link ( h t t p: //w w w.teenink. c o m /poetry/free_verse/article/360028/Afterthoughts/ ), or just read it below - whichever you prefer ^_^. Hope you enjoy it!

You never really did understand it,
did you? You just kept
going and going,
even though I was always
one step ahead of you,
telling you that you couldn’t win.
I always had
the more technical weapons,
better trained spies,
and no one,
no one, except you,
of course,
dared so much as to even trod on my toes.
I gave you many chances to give up,
but you never took them, which always angered me.
You knew it annoyed me, didn’t you?
Of course you would do something like that.
But what was it that made you keep going?
It wasn’t because you had lots of
money on your hands, no,
you were always the poor,
“innocent” one.
It wasn’t you were glowing with health,
because I made sure you didn’t get enough sleep.
It wasn’t because you were always
happy, because you lived in that
dingy orphanage for so long, and
then was eventually thrown out on the streets
without even a glance.
Or was it? Your face was always glowing,
with what was it called again?
Hope?
Or was it love?
Maybe it was both.
But why, why, did you keep going?
The odds were against you.
Of course, you won in the end,
as we all know,
but I can’t help but wonder,
why did you keep going?

Here's my entry. I've been thinking of posting this on teen ink, but I haven't yet.
"Greener Grass"
“Greener Grass”
Sometimes we wish
Without yearning.
We couldn't have sun
Without rain.
Some bridges were built
For the burning.
It wouldn't be life
Without pain.
The good, the bad, the ugly,
The hard things
And the softly snugly, Need each other to survive.
Perspective is the fuel
That keeps us alive.

I never fully knew How I felt about you You were always there We were together, but Were we really together? I never understood What you meant to me Until you said those words When you said goodbye I didn’t know what to think You turned and walked away With each step, my heart cracked More and more I was frozen in a state Of heart break I didn’t realize until then That I was in love But it was too late I guess it’s true You don’t know what you have Until it’s gone I wanted to cry out And tell you But I couldn’t Something was stopping me You were in love… With someone else I dropped to my knees A knot forms in my stomach Tears fill my eyes Why? How could you?

The Stars Will Bow Down To Me... And The Heavens Shall Be Mine !

Time and tide wait for none Shall not be the case of mine, What Kings and Queens have failed to acieve Once will all be mine . Many times fallen a Warrior i am , Always striving and trying Powers of Tide will be vested in me , As i shall command the Time ! Crowd has marked my grave on earth, Toussled me with my past Mere mortals dont know that , I have overcane my past. Though my spirit has lost many battles, It's not my spirit that is lost Like a 'WALKING DEAD' i will tear through my grave My spirit shall rekindle again ! The time is here, the time is now, Shouts my spirit awaken A lot is there that has to be done There is no point in waiting . Like a 'DEAD' man 'WALKING' again, I will once again face the world ' THE STARS WILL BOW DOWN TO ME , AND THE HEAVENS SHALL BE MINE ' !!
