Pongo Poetry Prize - April 2013

This is the 12th winner of the Pongo Poetry Prize. Following the winning poem, there are links to three great poems that received Honorable Mention.

Violated
by a young woman, age 14

I was sitting in the dark
all left alone in isolation
hiding from any more doom
and away from this situation

Those sickening eyes keep on staring
with dis-pleasuring thoughts behind
hands who keep on roaming
violating me in every way they can find

It was a past I just kept remembering
a part of my life I'll always carry
with great pain in every sting
stuck in a place that's nothing but scary
