poem ~ a poem

Hey guys! I have a funny poem to share with you today πŸ˜‚ I’m participating in Krisha’s poetry contest, and I finished writing my first entry this morning! I still had a lot of leftover poem energy after that writing session haha, therefore my poem about poems was born. I hope you enjoy it! πŸ’–

edit: I posted on The Jolly Space today, which you can check out here!

poem ~ a poem βœ’οΈ

Rhyming is hard, as you can see –
It challenges you like it challenges me.
And when you wonder if something is right,
Writing will extend long into the night.

Stanzas are short, and stanzas are long –
Some are where they don’t belong.
When the timing is off and the pace is slow,
That’s when you realize your inadequacy shows.

Writing a poem is no easy feat,
And it takes courage to keep writing along,
With pride in your heart and shoes on your feet,
You take the journey while singing a song.

Some verses make sense,
While others do not –
Did those last four verses
End up where they ought?

And these are the questions
You must ask yourself,
If you are to grow
As a poet… or elf.

Just kidding,
But sometimes poems are hard to write –
Can you really rhyme where it doesn’t seem right?

Sure you can!
You can rhyme anywhere you like!
You could write a poem while
Sitting on a bike.

My poem ends here,
And justly so –
While this ending is sudden,
My bravery shows.

Haha there you have it! If you like writing poetry, I’d love to read a poem you write about poems you write. lol let’s start a trend! πŸ˜‚πŸ‘πŸ’•

Which part of this poem was your favorite? Will you write a poem like this? Let’s chat in the comments!

  1. Wow! I love the poem. These are the exact troubles of writing poems. Especially the rhyming part… you know what to write but not how to write with rhyming words (I hope that made sense πŸ˜‚).

  2. “As a poet… or elf.”
    why is that so funny? πŸ˜‚
    I loved your poem that is about a poem. That is eccentric at the level of infinity.
    πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚I’m not gonna let this poem get out of my mind. It’s gonna be my own inside joke, when I laugh at it alone, without my friends having a clue why I’m laughing!
    LOVELY, maggs!
