1-9-1 Life

Poetry Contest
Write a 1-9-1 poem, that's a three line poem with one syllable in the first line, nine syllables in the second line and one syllable in the third line.

The only catch is, the word "LIFE" must appear either in the TITLE of your poem OR in the BODY of your poem. Your poem doesn't have to be about anything in particular, but it must include the word "LIFE" in one of those two locations.

Display any way you wish. Add music, GIFs, animations, marching bands ... whatever. Remember, Words beat pretty pictures. :))

The contest winner will win half of the prize pool which is based on the number of entries. The second and third place winners will each share the remaining prize pool. The prize pool is currently 80.00 member dollars. There are only 2 spots still open. If all open spots are used the prize pool will be 90.00 member dollars. In this contest at least 5 submissions must be made for the vote to begin.

Deadline: Contest Is Closed.
