Every year, I'm amazed and touched by the poems that are entered in the contest. And, every year, the judges struggle to choose "winning" poems. This year was no exception.
A few of this year's poems made me chuckle, a few brought tears to my eyes, all of them made me think. I hope you'll enjoy the poems as much as I did, and I hope you'll encourage other people to read them. If you know people who don't yet understand Migraines, how debilitating they can be, and how much damage they can do to our lives, these poems may help them understand.
Without further ado...
- First Place: What Happens in Here by Ann Silverthorn
- Second Place: A Beautiful Foreboding by MamaD
- Third Place: We All Are Bold by Lynn09
- Fourth Place: Freight Train by Spudgirl
Those are just the tip of the iceberg. I hope you'll continue on to read the poems that received honorable mention and the other poems that were entered from our announcement page.
My thanks and congratulations go to all who entered this year's contest. Special thanks to the National Headache Foundation for judging this year's contest.
