    Broken by Fire
    By Marshall Jones

    The fire has refined me into pure gold
    I see nothing close to pain from my past
    I used to be broken, but love has washed over.

    Walked the earth hidden, scarred from nightmares sold,
    shadows cast as darkness has made me crass.
    The fire has refined me into pure gold.

    Remnants of a life trashed by mold,
    I kept…[Read more]

    This challenge was very difficult, but I enjoyed it even more than I have any other one. It pulled my brain in so many directions! I hope you like what I brought to the table.

    Forgiveness
    By Marshall Jones

    I ran fervently until the day I was caught
    The rapture of heartache from the lack of touch
    Such a formidable for, the chance occasion we…[Read more]

    Here’s my poems for the club:

    I am Forever Reminded of Trust Broken
    By Marshall Jones

    I am forever reminded of trust broken…….
    Began when I was 4, before my innocence was stolen,
    a couple of years into a life marred by poor choices.
    Avoiding confrontation like it was poisonous,
    caused by venomous words spoken,
    my father floating between…[Read more]

    The Scroll
    By Marshall Jones

    I unwind some of the contents of my heart,
    bound so tightly no one can untie,,
    I cut away the knots instead of trying to pry them apart,
    a part of me doesn’t believe I have the time.
    Lost within the scrolls lie a record of being rejected,
    my house was a stolen car, a garage,
    sometimes on a hot night, a park bench…[Read more]

    Hi everyone!

    Thank you for starting this club and giving us the opportunity to construct our craft in different styles, and in different subjects. It was challenging, but I tried to make it happen. We’ll see though.:)

    I Am Poem

    I am a staunch loyalist, a truth seeker driven by clarity,
    I wonder if I’m the last of a dying…[Read more]

  • Speak Louder
    By Marshall Jones

    Can you heard the sounds of twenty-three thousand men and women
    imprisoned for various offenses?
    Have you stared into the eyes of desperation
    long enough to see humanity behind the frustration?
    Does the fruits of mental illnesses untreated seem to ring louder
    than the treatment it would take to heal the…[Read more]

  • Street Cred
    By Marshall Jones

    What is street cred?
    Is it the diabolical worship of an incredulous standard of living,
    stricken by poverty,
    while ambitiously willing to sacrifice several calendars
    for a fading perception?
    Is it the trend of sensationalized gun play, 30-round clips,
    dirty money in even dirtier whips,
    something foreign, something…[Read more]
