How well can you capture this? We all know how much me like to write the love poems. The ups, the downs, the break ups and the broken hearts. Now I want to see you take the came concept but twist things a bit. I want to challenge you. It doest matter what genre is typically you, attempt to capture the essense of this scripture. I recommend that you write a new poem for this but if you think you have something that is appropriate then by all means submit it. You're only allowed to submit two pieces and only poems. STEP OUT YOUR BOX AND TRY SOMETHING NEW. The following is what I'm challenging you to capture

1 Corinthians 13:4 "Love suffers long and is kind; love doesnot envy; love does not parade itself; is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things."

HINT- Im not asking for only flowery stuff, read and make it personal to you. If you need some inspiration I suggest that you research the scripture.

Aside from the overall winner, there will be a winner for best contrasting piece and a winner for the poem that best captures the scripture as it is.


The joy from knowing you have the skill to write varied forms of poetry.
