Bald Head

He still had his smile
Although he was losing his
Hairs... to find wisdom

Smoking in his bed
His tired eyes gave away
Dreams in bed ablaze...

Hello @moonleesteem, my entry this week.


With their swords for tongues,
they pierced my soul with more guilt
than the sin itself

Welcome @gamsam,
Cool... Good Luck 👍

A masterpiece...

Your eyes seem heavy
I have laid your bed, come sleep
When you are ready

Welcome @julietisrael,
Cool... Good Luck 🍀

thank you

Your contest was added to Steemit Contest Compilation for current week (26.03-01.04)

Cheers mate... we appreciate it 🤓

@moneyinfant has added your contest to the list Steemit Writing Contests: Issue #60. The list is updated on a daily basis and your contest will remain on the list until its expiration - there's nothing you need to do.

The list was created to save writers the excessive amount of time spent searching through the #contest tag for writing contests. Now they can just come to the list each day, see new contests and use their time doing what they love - writing.

If you'd like to help spread the word about the Steemit Writing Contest List I'd really appreciate a resteem, but it certainly isn't necessary. The project is simply meant to help writers save time and contest creators attract more contestants.

P.S. If you know of any contests I've missed I'd love to hear about them. Thanks!

Thank you... we appreciate it... 🤓

Crumbs of bread scattered
Little droplets of water
Hope to the hungry.

The neglected child,
Treated like old furniture,
Alone in darkness.

All the world bursting
New life surging electric
Veins awake from cold.

Here, kissing this sky,
I shall become them; fine stars,
Looking down at earth.

Trampled by all. Found
and loved by his tender hands,
she became chef-d'oeuvre.

Quo vadimus?

In a world gone mad
A sole question I shall ask
Where are we going?


Welcome @hoperimmel,

Dangerous Heroism

Sometimes to save lives
You must be willing to risk
Losing yours one day...

So she enjoys life
