2019 Poetry Ourselves: Lillian Hawkins



hi I'm Lillian Hawkins the North Carolina State Champion and this is a poem entitled sisters she is the Sun her eyes the sky her skin radiates warmth to all those she loves her head is covered in threads of fine gold creating a heavenly halo of fiery flares and sunspots she's far removed but ever constant she is the center of the universe her sister is the moon a girl so pale and mysterious closer to mankind and they're polluting atmosphere her skin is tainted by their victories and shows scars of their boots but when the Sun looks at her she is breathtaking the Sun lights up the moon the Sun makes her lovely the Sun gives her life the moon still goes through phases where her light shrinks because she is too far from the Sun but the Sun always comes back and I am always full again
