Every Week we send out a poetry Challenge to a small group of prisoners. Using their Corrlinks account they receive the challenge and send back their interpretation.
The challenges are designed to encourage creativity using different poetry formulas and Idea’s.
To participate please join us and enter your poetic entry.
We encourage communication between members and poets, if you’d like to contact a prisoner please ask us to send them your email and they can send you an activation code direct.

Standing before you,
like a shadow
when the sun is at your back
is this person who
a drill sergeant of sorts
barking out orders
for verbs and adjectives,
letting them do anything but
float adrift on a sea of laughter
and uncontrolled temperament.
His directives spoken
in similes of the sublime
Stretching across…[Read more]I AM
Unjustly held captive
I have unlimited potential
Which will potentially thrust me
To the pinnacle of perpetual greatness
Superior to the inferior thoughts
Of those inferior thinkers whom defined
My superior stature as inferior
The mechanical mental mechanism
I watch the passage of the sands of time
As the gold and red combine on fire in the falling sunset
Yesterday I was content
Alas my dreams now scatter unto dust
I cling in desperation try to keep hold of the burnt out ashes
When the time comes
As the last grain falls through the hourglass
I am resigned to my demise
For I shall see her…
everything to a person who never known love
of a good woman but we understand
nature because we do anything to impress
another person because it’s human nature
rarely do we take notice of what we are
