WELCOME
TO
OUR POETRY ARCHIVE


We Were All Humans Until
Race Disconnected Us,
Religion Separated Us,
Politics Divided Us,
And Wealth Classified Us.

Our Poetry Archive’s greatest intention has been to unite poets from around the world; in the purpose of promoting peace and unity through poetry. Though the world is full of terrorism, racial separation, consumerism, famine, pestilence, hurricanes, earthquakes, internal and external expression of darkened hate toward others, along with the overall uncertainty of humanity, we stand committed in the pursuit of appreciation of every poet who express personal thought, in the form of poetry. Poets who submit to Our Poetry Archive’s General Editions, Special Editions and Anthologies, have penned their personal thoughts, revealing deep feelings on the troubling subjects mentioned above. Poetess Denise Levertov said, “A poet articulating the dreads and horrors of our time is necessary in order to make readers understand what is happening, really understand it, not just know about it but feel it: and should be accompanied by a willingness on the part of those who write it to take additional action towards stopping the miseries which they record.” As an International Poetry Web Journal, Our Poetry Archive’s poets from around the world have proved its excellent literary influence upon these troubling subjects.

The editorial team at Our Poetry Archive does not believe that peace and unity is a delusive belief. Though the world is turning in a carousel ride of confusion; every writer and reader of Our Poetry Archive must continue the path of peace and unity with us. Our determination has proven true every month, as we read the incredible responses, of poet’s powerful words, which continue to be added to our numbers. The continuation of Our Poetry Archive’s intentions will remain intact, as we strive, to bring to light to every talent, of every poet, from every continent; in the purpose of peace, unity, and acknowledgement. This fact has proven true through various avenues Our Poetry Archive has pursued throughout the last three, plus years of publishing.

Some of the avenues Our Poetry Archive has developed, include: Poet of the Month; Special Continental Editions, featuring poets from Europe, North America, Africa, and Asia. Three Anthologies; Poetry for Peace Against Terrorism, Poetry for Unity Against Racism, and Contemporary Women’s Poetry. This month, October 2017, number of new poets have submitted their poems to Our Poetry Archive’s General Edition, adding to the numbers of this influential online poetry journal. The editorial team of Our Poetry Archive has found the growth of OPA very significant in the intended avenues of peace and unity.

 
“Poetry lifts the veil from the hidden beauty of the world, and makes familiar objects be as if they were not familiar.”
~Percy Bysshe Shelley~


Our Poetry Archive sings the melody of hidden familiarity in the world, through the thoughts and penned expressions of every contributed word.
