Craft A Poem Explaining How I Write Poems at Times

Recommended Posts

I want to write a poem,

But I don't know what to write!

So this is what I'll write about…

Oh I give up!

This isn't working,

My brain is cooked,

I've collapsed,

I've fainted,

I'm having a panic attack!

I can't open my kit-kat snack!

 

Should I write about the waving leaves on that beautiful tree over there?

Or should I write about the raging sea?

Or the angry bear, should I just leave it be?

Or should I write about those stars who all look down on me?

I think I found my subject.

But where do I begin?

The options are endless because this topic comes from within.

I think I can do this,

Just have to stay positive!

Every time the moon comes out,

The stars come-

I'M POSITIVE I CAN'T DO THIS!

 

The bell rang.

The class is done.

“It's time to turn in your poem, everyone!”

I hit my head on my desk, bang!

I had no poem, or so I thought,

Until I saw my rough draft thoughts.

They're perfect rhymes,

To my delight.

I honestly really didn't even try!

 

That's the process of writing a poem.

Well, I'm in English class, and I just started taking speech class this semester. Other than that, no. I kind of taught myself how to write poems. In school we don't normally have a poem unit sadly. I read a bunch of Shel Silverstein's poems when I was younger and I was really into them. I'm also very interested in listening to music, but the main reason why is the lyrics.

Random fact: I think I wrote this one in either November or December.

Hey, I was just looking at a deep poem that I wrote a few weeks ago. Do you want to read it?

Happy endings

Are just when happy ends

And evil begins.

 

Good can come

But it doesn't last.

A little girl’s hum

May find the ear of a prince

And they'd ride off in the sunset

Dancing in the wind.

But all that is past.

 

Happy endings

Are just a make believe pile of books.

Designed so we’d smile

Designed so we'd think what is false is true

What is true is false.

After all, the truth bites.

 

When we read these books

We zone out of our life

Fairytales put us under a spell

It's like we're not real

It's like we're not here.

Maybe it's better this way.

Because in life

There are only lies

Because there is truth.

 

There are no such things as happy endings

They're more like evil beginnings.

We only read happy endings

Because they're better than the truth.

The truth is evil.

Evil is the truth.

Pretty good. Different writing style. Maybe I'll start posting my poems in the form of topics instead. I feel like more people can see it then. TBH I had no idea you existed until I saw this
