Writers Corner | Wings Of Ink |  Poetry Contest Results |  Declared!!


A poetry contest organized by Dev and Tanisha.



Hello Friends!
- By Virginia Woolf





The wide range in the structure of Poetry will never fail to fascinate us . Even though the Poetic forms show such a large diversity in external structure , they are all characterised by their technical excellence - rhyme, meter, assonance and alliteration, form & flow, choice of words and readability, polish and expertise etc.




On behalf of the Writers Corner DT, I proudly welcome you to the Poetry Contest organised in the Writer's Corner Section! 

Before the results are announced, please take some time out to have a look at the themes for the Poetry Contest.

1. Love And Hate.
2. Story Of Firsts.
3. Love And Sacrifice.
4.  Shades Of Life.
5. A Little Moment Captured In Time.







The response received by us from members of the Writers Corner forum was huge and commendable. Please give a huge round of applause to all the participants of the contest. Clap




This contest surely made forum more active, which was the sole motive of organising the contest. Hence, we will soon post all the entries with the names of the poets for your reading pleasure! .

Reader's choice winner -  Entry 3 by Purple_Lady

Entry 3 :

Poetic Form : Free Verse


Born to the world were love and hate
They stood apart and never crossed the other's way
Love was pure and knew no fears
And hate was cruel and pulled the tears.



Love called out to embrace himself
Lest comes a day when hate would beg
But he stood proud for those who embraced
Little did he know a time would come; he would be debased.



There's beauty in the hands of love
As he praised the Lord above
Masked was the one , known as hate
A hunger he possessed  that nothing could satiate



They had their homes ; heaven and hell
It lied upon the heart to choose to dwell
In heaven he reaped a soul of peace
And that for hate , there was only pain to receive.

Here's your Gift

Entry 2 :

Title: I hate you 

In a world full of dishonesty and deceit 
With animosity and abhorrence all over replete 
You entered my life proving otherwise 
I hate you for removing my veil of despise 

My tears had dried, my heart had hardened 
No news affected me, joyful or saddened 
You melted my heart and released the fears 
I hate you for giving me many happy tears 

It seemed innocence was an age old thing 
Everybody's actions calculated and conspiring 
Your innocent eyes brought back my smile 
I hate you for making me feel alive 

You taught me to love and see the good side 
You brought out the human in me that was trapped inside 
Confess my love, shouts my inner voice 

I hate you for leaving me with no other choice

Reader's choice Runner Up -  Entry  4 by Reshma.

Entry 4 :

THE STORY OF FIRSTS!


Hard work and perseverance
Dedication to dream and reverence
Acting only on their dreams,
Work hard, however simple the task seems

Grit and focus in their path
To achieve their dreams and plans
Withstanding the darts that are hurled 
Making their name known to the world!

Every unforgiving minute, they filled
They filled it with their undying effort
The prize of their every blood drop
Made them reach the top

No other notion wavering,
Eyeing just their one main goal.
That set their lives in motion
That made them work with devotion

Meticulously planned work
No trace of fear for failure
Even on the tiniest idea working
Even if, for it, failure spread its wing

Not though a smooth journey it maybe
Infested with thorns, pitfalls and gins
They rose up to quench their thirst
Trying to win their battle first

Even through raging storms, undeterred
Firmly planting their feet through every gale
Toiling even in the wintry December
Later their name, the world will remember

Undaunted bu countless failures,
Their will will say to them ,"Hold on"
Only on their dream they did dwell
Saying to themselves "All is Well"

Self-acceptance and confidence
And with mind all on their path
To the weariness of body, their mind did not yield
That made them soar high in their field

When success will finally knock
The globe with praise it bursts
Hard work, perseverance and determination
All these lie behind the story of the firsts!

Entry 5 :

My Fairytale...


I liked him,

He liked me,

I loved him,

He loved me,

Life was easy,

Waiting for him to say it to me,

We talked, laughed, shared,

Love was in the air!

 

I saw myself in the mirror happy, loved, pretty and flawless..

Love was still in the air.

He never  told me he loved me,

But I knew it from deep inside my heart that he did,

Day by day was getting lost in his thoughts,

Actually was lost in a fairy tale.

 

Then I woke up from my dreams!

Life was never easy,

He never loved me,

He never liked me,

Love was never in the air,

It was just me and my one-sided love!

I was used when needed,

Played with and then,

Left lonely.

 

Then I saw myself in the real mirror :

I was just a normal, ugly, unattractive girl,

Lost in tears.

Never wanted to see the mirror again.

My life was shattered,

No love. No happiness.

The ending was painful..

 

I was a girl who could never be loved or liked,

I cried, cursed, thought of taking revenge,

But it was of no use,

Because life would not be the same!

 

He was happy,

Living, cheerful. No regrets!

My life was full of regrets

Just left everything on God,

Time was my best friend,

Because time was the best healer than anyone else.

And I thankful to God because my life was getting better day by day.

Now my life was something else.

 

My life was just family, friends and the world except him,

But behind everything happening there was a reason.

It was my fault that I was lost in my Dream world,

I fell down but again I was standing,

My life was again the same!

I was happy without him

No regrets!

 

But Again the cupid did its work,

I again started liking him,

But this time not like before.

I was never madly, deeply in Love again.

 

Then I knew that life was a Tangle and will always be!

We can't get rid of it.

The folly human nature.

But I was thankful to God that I was never in my Dream world again.

Entry 7 :

    Love and Sacrifice.

 

Love - the word speaks of bliss 

Love - the word carry of dreams

Love - the word every human crave of

Love - the word awakens passionate desire

 

These are the words I have been listening

When I came to know the word called love

 

I didn't thought ones I could ever cherish

This blissful feeling in my life until I met you

 

 

Making me drown in carpet of passionate dreams

Making me to fly over clouds with your ones smile

Making me dance on our passion rhythm with

Your one warm embrace

 

 

You're the most beautiful girl I met till date

Confided with innocent fragrance

I felt like dream when you accepted my love

 


It is indeed a dream now as I lost my love

I lost my life

 



I am nothing today



 

You can proudly say it was sacrifice

But is it??

 

 

Answer my love why your voiced tamed out today

It was my heart bleeding with your sacrifice

You crushed my dreams with your sacrifice

My tears dried long back these are pearls of your eyes

All will say another name of love is sacrifice

But who will do that when it comes a question of them

 

 

You did that as a proof of our love as honor

I cont even curse you nor my fate as you are living in me

Your every breathe is making me feel alive

I am proud of you my love I can scream out saying

 


You are my love who is living in my heart

Who sacrificed her love

The heart has earned itself to be divine

Judges' choice winner -  Entry 1by DurgaS

Entry 14 :

Title: Life 

Is the glass half full or is it half empty? 
From person to person, the answer will vary 
Just so is life and your life's story 
Either it's very sad or full of glory 

Moments are those that glorify your life 
Happy or sad or the ones filled with strife 
Never does one stay for more than a given time 
It's a cycle that repeats all your life time. 

Feel blessed for the good and prepare for the bad 
Accept the challenges without feeling sad 
Another path will open, if one is closed 
Challenges should never be left unprobed 

Shades of life are such, they will always change 
Sometimes long, sometimes short, will be the range 
Those who accept with a smile, will take the crown 
One can never attain their goals with a frown

Entry 13 :

Meri khata?? (A tribute to delhi rape case victim)

Kya ye meri khata hai?? Kya ye mera kusur hai??
Ladki hun koi cheez nai...!!!!
Aae ho tm mujh me se hi kahin..
Yun na khelo yun na todo.. Jism nai jasbaat bhi hain!!
Haalaat ne majboor kr dia.. Meri kismet ne mujhe khokla kr dia..
Aisi bhi kya khata kar di??
Mera zor nai tha!! Mera haath nai tha!!
Main ladki hun khilona nai..
Mujhe poojoge, meri archana kroge har devi ke sath meri vandana kroge..
Pr mera dukh na smjha!! Na smjhi meri peer..
 Chodh dia..
Yun marne ke lie!!
Is dunia me rehne k lie!!!
Insaan ho ya haiwaan???
Itni berehmi, itna apmaan...!!!
Dard hota hai.. Bht dard hota hai..
Har karwant har siski me tujhe kosa hai..
Meri nai to kisi ki lgegi..
Dua nai badd dua milegi..
Maine na bigada tha tera kuch fir kyo sazzaa di??
Bs ek br.. Ek baat hai bs..
Main rahun ya nai.. Ehsaas dena..!! Jis dard se main guzri unhe vo dard dena...
Ja rahi hun.. Is dard se door..
Is peer, is zindagi se door..
Jaane nai lautne k lie.. Ye dard peeche chodhna hai...
Ab mujhe ek br or jeena hai..

TRANSLATION-

Is it that I m wrong..??? Is it that I m at fault..???

I m a girl not some thing

You have also come from my womb

Don't play with me, don't break me, Not only body but I have feelings also..

I m helpless, My destiny made me weak from inside

What did I do wrong

I had no hand in it

U will worship, U will do pooja , U will pray infront of goddess

But u never felt my pain and sadness

U left me to die

And to live like helpless in this life

Are u a human or Devil..???

Why this much insult of me..??

It pains, It pains a lot

Every time I change a side on bed, Every time crying I have cursed u..

If not of me then whom..???

Instead of Blessings u will get cursed..

I never did anything to u then why u punished me..??

Only once, there is something

I m alive or not, make them realize..

The pain I gone through should be given to them..

I m going.. Away from this pain

Going only to come back again.. I have to leave this pain back

So that I will live this life once again...

Judges' choice winner - Entry 16 by -wintergreen- and Entry 18   by pinkpearl5

Entry 16 :

Little moments captured in Time

To see that happy smile on your face
when your  eyes crinkle with delight
to see the happy tears welling in your eyes
when you see me coming towards you full of spright

To hear how much you prayed for me 
when you came to know I was unwell
to see you overwhelmed with joy
when proudly to everyone you tell 


To listen to you telling me how much you wait for summers to come
just so that you could spend time with me
to inhale the delicious smells coming from the kitchen
when I see you've cooked all my favourite meals 

To watching your favourite shows
when evening 6 pm strikes
to those various card sessions we had
when your happiness knew no bounds every time we thought alike


To always being there for me
when there were times I felt low
To all those times
when I used to look forward to your special hot cocoa

To think of all those moments captured in time
when every moment with you spent was like a dream
to feel tears splashing on the pages as I write this
when I thank the Lord for having a grandfather such as you in my team.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------



Entry 18 :

Pausing special little moments!

When we sat together as a family,
When we ate together very happily,
Laughter and smiles came our way,
I love my family and that's all I want to say! 

I paused that moment because it means a lot to me,
I feel blessed because what unfortunate people can't feel, I get to see!
I love my family, I love my relationships,
All I pray to God for is a sweet little smile on their lips! 

When I laugh or when I cry,
They're always with me searching for joy in my eye,
I have no words left to express,
How much I love my family and my love for them and their love for me will never get less!

Entry 21 :

Theme : A little moment captured in time
Poetic Form : Free Verse


I lay on the ground , eyes to the sky
Picked on the grass as another tear slipped by
There were reasons i had that broke me apart
Engulfing every inch of my bereaved heart
 Dawn had unprecendentedly belied

Night had fell and i continued to cry
Screamed for the one who spoke his last goodbye
Then i looked closely at the heaven and awoke with a  start
He had became a star that would never depart
A reason i now had for an infallible smile
