Pongo Poetry Prize - April 2012

This is the eighth winner of the Pongo Poetry Prize! Following the winning poem, there are links to three great poems that received Honorable Mention.


I'm Non-Replaceable 
by a young woman, age 14 

I'm non-replaceable
At least I think
I'm more than a person
could be gone in 3 blinks
 
There's things I could be
100 things i'm not
If i love a boy
I'd give all i got
 
I suck at rhyming
But it’s what i love to do
I could be solving a problem
And forget without a clue
 
I'm in love with the thought of love
But I grew up with hate
When my dad was messed up
I'm the one who paid for his mistakes
 
When my world crashed down
And when my mother tried to beat her monsters
There i would be by her side
I practically lived in that hospital
 
So, i made mistakes
And they probably weren't  the best
But i'd cut through thick and thin
To get out of this mess
