Ode to You (yes, YOU!)

Poetry Contest
Therapy time!
Write a love poem to yourself (in second or third person) looking at yourself through the eyes of someone who truly loves and accepts you. It can be a real or fictional character who 'writes' the poem, however make sure the focus is on YOU (and NOT on how great THEY are for loving you).

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 70.00 member dollars. There are 4 spots still open. If all open spots are used the prize pool will be 90.00 member dollars. In this contest at least 2 submissions must be made for the vote to begin.

Deadline: Contest is closed. Deadline was Saturday, November 28, 2020.
