I have found that what I put here before was very deep.
Just wanted to say hi.
So hello.

#IAmPoem Prompt

October 19, 2018


I am thoughtful and intellectual.
I wonder how it feels to live as a released, crazy child; not the carefully constructed being I am.
I hear sunlight.
I see crystal.
I want to feel nature.
I am erratic and flustered.
I pretend to know what I’m doing.
I feel everything; happiness, fear, annoyance, humor, freedom.
I touch the ocean.
I worry about what I will become.
I cry about what I should have done.
I am shattered.
I understand that I don’t need to be anything— easier said than done.
I say to live fully.
I dream about magic.
I try to be perfect. I fail. I don’t mind.
I hope to be able to accept myself.
I am complete.
Hello all! I suggest doing this for yourself, and see what comes out your beautifully bleeding minds. I look forward to them, and if you could put #IAmPoem in the title that would be great.
Hmm... I've never started something like this before. I hope it works.

    No worries at all! I thought it was pretty clear, I just normally interpret things like this incorrectly and I didn't want to screw up your prompt. I'll do this right now! <3

    And you can interoperate it any way you want. But the original idea was to write a poem using the beginnings of each line (which are in bold). And this is why I don't do challenges.

    Yes. And sorry for the confusion.

    So... the idea is to write a poem where every line starts how your poem's lines started? (I am, I wonder, I hear, etc.) Is it meant to be in the same cadence? Are we meant to respond to every "question"?

    Oh, and the bold words are the questions.
