As I walked down the cold, dark alley
I noticed the beauty
Of a tall, sharp, gleaming skyscraper
Made of heavy steel and glass,
I then wondered
How it was built
Pane by Pane
Bit by bit
And then it was gone
Out of my sight
And the thought passed
Like a light...
This was the first piece of poetry I have written this year and I think it went pretty well. I think this because I was able to get on the point of one topic and stay with it and give it a good ending. It just felt good to write and it made sense so I thought it went well. I also think that I probably could have made it longer. I could have given more thoughts on the building before I said that it passed through my mind.
who is this kid in the mirror?
With blue green eyes and dark brown hair
Fixing his collar
Six foot two inches of pure mass
Ready for a good day at school
Worrying about the same things as his peers
Teachers yelling, getting E’s and being made fun of
But he pushes through these things
And makes the best days possible
And now brushing his teeth
Making a plan on how to make his way through the day unscathed
Then thinking about all the things that could go wrong
Then pushing them off to the side
Letting nothing get to him
Then go out on a wire
And jump into the fire.
This is probably the best poem I have written this year. I say this because I feel like it just flowed the best. I gave necessary poetic points and described a full story in it. This poem just felt really good to write. I do really like this this poem though.
Life is like a river
Flowing as it does
Making turns and twists on its path to the ocean
But the journey is long
If you take the right turns
And live life to what it has to be
And in the end you will have found peace and happiness.
This is my least cared for piece of poetry so far this year. I just didn’t give it enough thought and time. It doesn’t make a ton of sense and is quite short. I could fix it up somehow but I think it should be an example for me what not to do. This poem just didn’t flow and I didn’t give it enough thought.
