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

And remember that whoever you are, however you look, in what way you think, what you drink, how you express yourself, how you write, what music you listen to, and even how long your fingernails are, the only real thing about you is what you decide to be.

#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.
