This poem was written in my English class back in college. We were given an exercise to write a poem about anything that came to mind, we were even given some pictures to inspire our writing.... Unfortunately nothing was coming to my mind, except this...
A Poem about A Poem
By: Amelia (Amilli)
To write a poem is my mission
But the task is so sudden, I have no vision!
I sit and look, twist, turn, and wonder
"What should I write about," I ponder
Three pictures are given for inspiration
Yet am sadly getting no motivation
I think I feel a spark and I start to write
I was wrong....still in the dark...still no light!
"Oh what a tedious task this is," I thought
I love to write poems, but today with ideas I fought
"Darn it!" I pout
"I'll write about not knowing what to write about!"
There you have it, my poem is complete
Whew! that was hard, am tired, am beat
Oh well enough is enough, am putting down my pen
Yes my poem is finish, that's it...the end.
My writing is a passion, not a hobby!
