    Without struggle there’s no victory

    Many people’re crushed in their lives overwhelmed by situations.
    Some have fallen into trap of lies, sick of injustices.
    Tired of that difficult moment; whose life had no more Faith foundations.
    Troubled and looking for mend, for a time of armistice.
    Even though they once had one peaceful and fructuous life,
    they can only advance without remembering their past success.
    Feeling dejected, far away from that wondrous path to light
    perfect, its own array, that once God give with excess.
    I have seen so many people sunken, destroyed, stopped
    exhausted because of any error they may had committed.
    Even though aware of this, for conformity they had opted.
    Clothes of defeat they wear, giving up the salvation needed.
    There’s still hope, no matter how big your problem can be
    There’s no problem that is able to surpass the sacrifice of He.

    Oh woman of the earth
    You who gives me a feeling of despair
    Without you i cant even comb my hair
    For you are the woman for whom i care
    Your simple site
    Fuels me with delight
    Your simple scent
    Fuels me with content
    Oh how i hate you woman
    You who makes me want and need
    That for which i have no need
    You who in me implants joys and feeling of such grand
    But in the end what is this delight
    But the simple string from which you rule.

    These days keep on passing and don’t ever stop
    Most are loved, but many times are hated
    Sometimes you really want to make them pop
    Sometimes they go and make things complicated

    We want good days but they go another way
    You get frustrated when they mess up your life
    But some of them will fall and some will run away
    Some will make you feel you got stabbed with a knife

    The truth is we will never live without them
    Their experiences keep us on our feet
    To write them we would need more than one pen
    But we will never get to write them neat

    Happy days, we always want them in our hearts
    Happy days, we must never live apart

      This First Love of Mine

      God has been good,giving me hands and feet
      For I love this with all my heart ,
      So when I’ll know it’s dead, I would surely weap

      Because it has been with me since the start
      Although my future with you feels as my curtain will fall
      It will never , ever take us apart

      My dream job, I wish it would call
      For the time I spent loving you
      Since the day I could remember when I’d crawl

      For that day we met, my love towards you grew
      And if someone tried to take me from you , I would start a brawl
      So when I can’t see you anymore, my day will be dim and blue

      The heart , desire , passion and the seriouseness in which I crossed the line
      This first love of mine.

  4. Ivette M López says:

    My loved one has brought me many flowers
    Picked from a garden filled with love and dew
    This place that is visited by sun and showers
    You chose the ones that with great colors grew

    In short time our love has anchored and grown
    The blooming of feelings have changed by days
    The laughter and kindness sustains on its own
    leaving the aroma of the emotions guide the way

    But the overgrown are not found in great colors
    so they are weeds that reflect our past sorrows
    together we will fight back the harm of these others
    hand and hand forceful with a love and tomorrows

    So these flowers will be kept deep in my heart
    where growing love is a special art

    The king

    Of all the artists and entertainers,

    he was the most controversial.

    He was criticized and judged harshly

    by everyone in the world.

    He went to trial for crimes he didn’t do,

    and almost went to jail.

    Like scavengers waiting for an animal to die,

    we watched as you tried to rebuild your career.

    Then one day, you suddenly leave us.

    All of us were in shock.

    The king has died five days before his return!!

    Every person that made fun of you or called you names

    are now crying with regret.

    All we have now are the videos that prove This is it!

  6. Verónica Feliciano says:

    He, who is so full of pride
    In dark and sleepless night she cried
    But every time she failed to forget
    Thinking about the day they met

    You made her feel so free
    But you left her on a silent sea
    Now they are miles apart
    This way it’s better for the heart
    To you it may have not meant a thing
    When you left her hanging on a string

    She is now trying to move on
    Hoping the next one won’t do her so wrong
    Trust is now so hard to give
    But it’s part of trying to live
    New experiences and people lie ahead
    And her heart will finally be fed
    With the one who will not fail
    And create a whole new tale
    But in the mean time
    She keeps on trying to forget the one
    But that is easier said than done

  8. Omar R. Diaz says:

    How many times, my love, I love you and did’nt see you
    My love, my dear love, blue like a cloud in the sky
    And everything for me seems to be blue like a star
    with you and me, my heart stop and I feel free
    How my heart begin to feel alive in love
    no matter how many days we are together falling in love
    because day and night, and night by day, we love each other
    and all our friends which I thought that feel buried
    The full heart and the mind are in perfect war
    and my heart’s right began to fight and invade the love’s heart
    the love is part of the eternity
    and the record of my living is part of the memory
    I wrote in red ink, my love still shine bright
    and after the time of my death, my love began to shine…

    The Hunter

    In a place where few men have been before
    Where civilization is left behind
    And there is only nature that makes you sore
    With rifle in hand he is seeking to find

    Walking silently through vast vegetation
    Sunset is ending, but he has no fear
    Following paw marks with great dedication
    A sudden stop, stillness, a sound now he hears

    There is his striped prey, there in the river
    Beautiful fusion of colors, nothing like dull
    His firm and cold hands, finger in the trigger
    Sweat drops on his forehead, he is ready to pull

    The boy wakes up, but still with the illusion
    Of his constant dream see the conclusion

  10. Omarys J. Mercado Albert says:

    Always there

    There for you every time you need him,
    hears your sorrows and feels your enormous pains,
    walks by your side at the dangerous street’s rim,
    made you totally free, untied of chains.

    For those who believe what a treasure
    for those who don’t how foolish they are
    if its only thought fills me with pleasure
    he’s the guidance for me, my shining star.

    Many names he has, only one he is
    when bad moments come to picture
    remember there’re no miracles as his.

    Loving him made me love me and you
    no more that how he loves us for sure
    but his deception tears appear at morning dew.

  11. Reinaldo Agostini says:

    I be down upon the planks breathing, panting,
    With the leather boot still in my gut
    Feeling just as an abandoned mutt,
    While the pointy steel be at me pointing.
    I be sick of the land, sick of the rules
    And thus I took to the seas:
    Wood, salt and water, no machineries.
    Those lassies be making no more fools…
    But then she be in my mind:
    Brown eyes, brown hair, brown skin.
    Mutt begoned, left behind;
    Pushed steel and felt my grin.
    This scallywag be going to Davy Jones’s in bind
    And I be seeing this dainty girl to again begin

    A Secret

    She has a secret she holds inside
    it keeps her from smiling
    it makes her want to cry
    He doesent understand
    He tries to aske
    But she wount listen
    He thinks its something from the past
    She keeps this secret day by day
    There is nothing he can do
    There is nothing he can say
    At last the secret is bursted out
    He was left wihthout a breath
    He couldent even shout
    The tears in his eyes began to fall down his face
    As he looked at the cold emply place
    The love of his life was not their anymore
    He couldent believe she had walked out the door

      Walking the streets on a very busy day
      This smell made me look over my shoulder
      And I saw them where they lay on display
      Where they caused my heart to happily wonder
      Which delight would be my treat today
      Peanut butter, chocolate or other
      I got inspired and went home to try
      To take some treats in my oven
      I tried to get the ingredients right
      And wanted to put on the cookies chips
      But because I ran out of them last night
      To the store I had to make another trip
      Burning I smelled them when I got back
      And sobbing I wondered which skills I lacked

  14. Jennifer Rivera says:

    Shadows

    Shadows are dark and cold, on the wall so high
    Scary at night, you don’t want to be alone
    Shadows, always following your steps on the road
    As the moon light moves, so do shadows to hide

    Shadows may take many forms, just like hail
    Be careful, you don’t want to get trap all lone
    No one wants to be alone in the dark, no
    Shadows will embrace you with fear, like a hilt

    Such fear does not exist
    When sadness arrives
    Cold and dark like shadows on the rain

    Shadows are a comfort to the heart, is it?
    In shadows you’ll be safe
    Furthermore, they’ll be hugging you… in your pain

    • liza18 says:

      i reallly enjoyed your sonnet
      i believe it’s italian because of the 4 4 3 3
      i’m not sure if you have a volta or if you just postponed it
      three lines later because in the ninth line you keep talking about pain
      something you had already mentioned in the previous line
      what i think if your volta is in line 12 where you suddenly mention
      that shadows are a comfort and that you’ll be safe in them (line 13)
      overall i think it was a good sonnet XD

  15. Reina Añeses says:

    Having someone to scream at you and fight you
    when all your looking for is his well being
    when you get slapped with a word out of the blue
    the only thing you can do is stand there seeing

    if there’s something they can do to fix things up
    To offer a friendship as mines isn’t easy
    those tedious little fights are worst than a breakup
    as if the world could fall like a mystery.

    Yet any problems in life can be repaired
    with just a smile of that friend that admires you.
    That’s one of the reasons you must not be scared
    to help those who need you.

    Friends don’t appear as often as you may think
    So watch closely, don’t let them go in as you blink.

    Untitled

    I was once a girl free from distractions.
    I am still a girl who relishes on reading,
    but something’s different, something amiss
    for my reading sessions have occluded my mind.

    Before it was just like a friendly adventure,
    It was sailing through words, unharmed.
    I set priorities: finish thy work and run wild in words.
    And the will and mind followed them through.

    In the years that went through, it snapped.
    In the swirls of my mind, a thought rose tall from others:
    Never to stop the world of words to disappear.

    While I have yet to see a way around,
    the gnawing at my mind knows no stop.
    Many battles will be fought, but this war knows no end.

  17. gabriel mendez says:

    my love for you will always be alive
    I never want to see you go away
    so please don’t ever let me see a lie
    or I will have to go and leave today
    I never thought the love for you would grow
    I’m really glad I am with you
    I love the way you used to kiss me
    The way I used to speak to you
    I can’t believe the way you used to see
    The way you used to look inside my eyes
    You’ve changed so much and that’s how you should be
    You stayed and laid always right by my side
    My heart reaches out to say that I love you
    I hope that you would feel the same way too

  18. Valeria Rodriguez says:

    Have you ever stopped and looked at the moon?
    Have you seen how amazing it looks?
    I just look at it and thought about last June
    When I was walking on the dock and one look its all it took
    One look its all it took for me to fall in love with the moon
    I was sitting on the dock reading my book
    And I remembered when its magnificent light shone on the lagoon
    It filled me with its light and all I could do was look
    As I looked all I could see was his face in the reflection
    I only wish he was feeling what I was
    And that he could´ve seen that moment as I was
    If that were only true that moment would’ve achieve total perfection
    But as I came to realize I couldn’t take his rejection
    So loving the moon was my only redemption

    “Faith” (A.K.A “The Crappy Sonnet”)

    He was a lawyer and a man of faith
    She was nothing more than a daughter, a simple housemaid
    It all happened one summer
    Where both fell in love with each other

    They were both so naïve and yet so perfect
    They felt lucky to be together
    He left town for two years to finish his degree
    Hoping that she would be waiting and marry him

    One day in August he received a letter saying:
    My dear I have grown tired of waiting…

    He flew back to town
    To find her in a wedding gown
    She was pregnant and looked somehow ill
    He couldn’t bare the pain, so he shot her and then got killed

    Love Mistake
    I once had the perfect love
    With the perfect girl
    It’s definitely hard to find
    Once you have it you just
    Want to hang on to it forever
    The best feelings and sentiments
    And a trip to a fantasy world
    Is what you get when you’re in love
    But sometimes love has to end
    And sometimes it ends in a way
    In a way that it’s unexplainable
    I left my perfect girl for no reason
    I left her in my trip to my new life,
    still after all this time, I’m paying the price.

    Sestina:
    The perfect love
    Perfection can be explained in baseball
    If you love it you play it every day
    Every game is like your last game
    Even better if you‘re in a good team
    In the field you have to enjoy the sun
    The only disaster is a hard injury

    With a bad slide you can get an injury
    Really not everything is perfect in baseball
    When you’re losing always hate the sun
    Not always you’ll have a good day
    Sometimes the team fails to be a team
    And sometimes you lose the game

    You don’t always have time for a game
    And sometimes you’re limited by injury
    You don’t have enough players for a team
    Or maybe you don’t like baseball
    You don’t want to waste your day
    Or even get a drop of sun

    I personally love that sun
    Better if I’m in a juicy game
    Every day is a perfect day
    Yesterday I got a hand injury
    that doesn’t destroy my love for baseball
    even less my love for my team

    my team is the best team
    they give everything under the sun
    we share our love for baseball
    and more our love for the game
    we all are prone to a bad injury
    but we’ll still have an awesome day

    tomorrow with a good sun, we play baseball
    forget the injury, tomorrow’s my day
    I’m still part of the team; it’s just another game!

  22. Verónica L. Feliciano says:

    Time for a new start
    Because time is not to be wasted
    This is just the first part

    Listen to your heart
    Think of all you have achieved
    Time is not to be wasted

    Things may seem like they’re falling apart
    But life is the best picture ever painted
    This is just the first part

    You always wish to depart
    Because you feel like you’re tainted
    Time for a new start

    Feels like it’s time to restart
    No space for hatred
    This is just the first part

    Erase what tore you apart
    It’s the day you’ve anxiously awaited
    Time for a new start
    This is just the first part
