War Within The Heart

War is in the world but where does it
War is a crisis that starts within the
Hate and discrimination let out of Pandora’s
Start fighting and war as time passes on the
When racism opens up to speak
Violence and war are at a peak
There is no civilization but
There will be no greater change if you want the enemy to
To look into your
War does not have to start.
If we can make tomorrow a better
The world will be greater for the human

Todays poetry contest entry was written by Vanessa Madrid.


Do you think it could be the best new poem in 2013?

  1. Her words speak volume to what we face on an everyday basis. When you wake up and turn on the news, steppping ouside and dealing with everyday issues and people It makes you question yourself in what ways do you contribute to the negativity in your life and the world. Beautiful. Honest.
