turns out im a poet and now i know it

I entered a national poetry contest a while back (the top prize was £1000 and being unemployed with no money for summer it seemed like a good idea). So I had a go at trying to write a little something and sent it away for fun thinking nothing of it.

When I opened my mail yesterday I was surprised to find a letter from a press company. The letter said although I didn't win the competition they want to publish my poem in a new poetry book they're making called 'A Guiding Light'. So it turns out my poem wasn't complete nonsense after all, and although I know the book wont be hugely successful at least I can say I'm a publish poet! Here's the poem...

Desolate desert, skull and bones
Two skeletons together, we call this our home
Willingly stranded from all humankind
Happy to live leaving all else behind
We'll escape persecution under the stars
Our love only shall judge us
Define who we are


What do you think? :/
When I wrote the poem I thought about an apocalyptic scenario, lovers in a trashed wasteland. I think that's why I like the new Insight 51 campaign so much. It kind of illustrates that idea pretty well.
Insight 51
is my new favourite label. Originally starting as a Surfboard company they quickly moved onto making super hot clothes. Their garments have a strong 90's feel to them and they apparently draw inspiration from surfers, skaters,and the 90's. I'm really obsessed with grungy 90s looks at the moment. Kristen Stewart probably has something to do with that.. Heres my favourite looks from thier latest summer collection. Enjoy!

Hi !.
You re, I guess , probably very interested to know how one can make real money .
There is no need to invest much at first. You may start to receive yields with as small sum of money as 20-100 dollars.

AimTrust is what you thought of all the time
The company incorporates an offshore structure with advanced asset management technologies in production and delivery of pipes for oil and gas.

It is based in Panama with offices everywhere: In USA, Canada, Cyprus.
Do you want to become a happy investor?
That`s your choice That`s what you wish in the long run!

I feel good, I began to take up income with the help of this company,
and I invite you to do the same. If it gets down to select a correct companion who uses your funds in a right way - that`s the AimTrust!.
I make 2G daily, and my first deposit was 1 grand only!
It`s easy to get involved , just click this link http://qibynewota.1accesshost.com/hybonom.html
and lucky you`re! Let`s take our chance together to get rid of nastiness of the life
