Dream Quest One Third Poetry Prize
Winner - SUMMER 2015
of Erie, Michigan - USA






Life can be joy without tragedy

We do not need rain to know the warmth of the sun

We do not need solitude to know togetherness

These things are lives unto themselves

 Love of the rain does not mean disdain for the Sun

We can beat a system that expresses suffering for joy

That sadness must follow delight or a smile leads a teardrop

We can lead a life worth remembering without headlining irrelevance

Your heart will keep what is real as your body adjust to what is imagined

Enjoy solitude in the warm Sun and raindrops with a million friends

Life is to be lived and we are the perfect creatures to oblige

By Teddy Marshall Smith

About the poet: 

I am a 37-year-old, married father of three. I am an Engineer in my career but writing is what I truly love. I don't know if I am a poet but I feel motivation from the words. They sit in my head until I let them go. I pretty much write anything. I have a few screen plays, TV shows and Novels. "Uniformity in art is confusing to me but sometimes symmetry adds to any piece.
