Ugh!  I'm so frustrated and angry!!  I wrote this (love poem) and put it in the youth group and then my priest told me that it was not "approite" and that I couldn't put it in!!  That is the first rejection toward my poetry and I'm so upset.  I can't believe that!!  Here is the poem that I submitted to church..and got rejected....

Just a Dream

When you look into their eyes
You fill up with wonderful sighs
They are in your dreams
And everytime you look at them your face just beams
Wishing you were in their arms
Knowing that they would protect you from any harm
When you wanna give them a hug
You turn away cause they'll think you're a bug
Their in love, but it's not you
So how much you're in love with them, they don't have a clue
If him and you had a chance
The relationship would surly dance
And if the dancing did stop
Your heart would slowly drop
So if things don't work out
You'll know not to sit there and pout
Cause it's just a dream
You never know what it could mean

(now how could this get rejected?!! There is nothing wrong or "not Christian like" in it!!)

there are millions
of them, but only
one can make you dreams
come true~

Nikki~~~Why would he do something like that??Is this not good enough???I think it is. Its not like you are saying anything bad in it. Are we supposed to reject love because we are teenagers??I dont think so.

Nikki, very probably this wasn't a rejection of you or your poetry, but what your youth pastor felt was appropriate for your group of teens. Maybe one glorifying God would get your foot in the door? Good luck and don't be hurt or angry, just realise that not everyone understands a poet....

Niki: Sweetheart, some priests just don't feel the way the rest of us do...

You hear all the constant arguments, some believe it's ok to be gay, some believe it's against their beliefs....they're just men, sweetheart and fallible, like you and me...*g*

I liked it..
