We are pleased to announce the winner of our poetry competition on New Beginnings is Forrest Brunet! Congratulations!

Thank you to everyone who took part. The standard of entries was extremely high and it was a pleasure to read them. 

Here is Forrest's poem:

Strings

I don’t remember who we used to be, all the memories are fading away

So here i am, begging for the right to listen. Will you just play me our song, 

Then maybe i can move on with all our strings intact?

 

Standing in meadows, wind brushing away the past

Laughter poured down like rain, swept the scars down through the gates

Our hands no longer holding because now isn’t the time for foolery

 

Cracked lips make broken smiles, delicate curves no longer fitting perfectly

pictures burn in the open fire, we became ashes when letting go was our only option

did we not know that there was another way to forget the pain we caused?

 

I don’t remember who we used to be, all the memories are fading away

So here i am, begging for the right to listen. will you just play me our song, 

Then i might move on with all our separate strings intact

 

There’s a line from a song we used to sing, i don’t believe we can start over again

Tears were whipped away and cries were left behind, does that mean war is ended now?

Everything fell into place then out again, but there must be something beyond these walls

 

Now here i play, our remix, a story of life. with these cords and every note

A melody we used to share, these lyrics mean nothing without each other

But that doesn’t matter to you, so just pay attention, you can’t miss what i need to say…

 

I don’t remember who we used to be, all the memories faded away

So here i am, begging for you to listen. i’ll play you our song, 

Then finally move on with all my strings intact
