My 1st Writing Award — For Poetry!

Or, The Poem That Made Me Believe I Could Be A Writer

When I was seventeen I wrote a poem (one of dozens I scribbled in my diary) and submitted it to the Victor Valley College’s annual writing contest. I won an honorable mention, which seems to amount to 4th place. This was the first time I ever made anything I wrote public, let alone allowed it to be judged. The validation certainly had an impact on my decision to continue writing.

So, thank you VVC. And here’s the poem. It’s untitled because I was awful at writing titles, even then.

 

Yes, once upon a time,

Good princes got the girls,

Old dragons lived on rocks,

And ev’rything was nice.

*

Yes, once upon a time,

Was over long ago,

Now princes are just shot,

And dragons live in homes.

*

<3 Anna
