So, I've been writing poetry a lot. My friend Kelsi and I started writing some last year, and now I still write some. Right now, I'm doing a poetry project for school, and so I'm writing more, but not just for school. So since I thought that maybe some other people like to write poetry, I'd start a thread for people who want to show theirs off. So post whatever poems you've written here.

I love writing poetry too.
I don't have any on here but I have this one memorized because I had to present it as an alternative assessment for my English final in my freshman year of high school last year.
I basically tried to write a poem with a lot of literary devices so that I could
annotate it for credit on the final. And then I needed to say what it was about,
so I just said it criticized the typical teenager's fear to ask and answer
questions. I also tried to use a ton of allusions and irony. But yeah, here's
the poem.

How does the swimmer know how to drown?
Where can the rainbow's beginning be found?
Does God truly grieve for every last sin?
Who gave the Joker a reason to grin?
What do black holes gain from lost time?
Where is the corridor of reason and rhyme?
Why did curiosity kill that poor cat?
Am I truly sitting where Jesus once sat?
Where does the butterfly shelter from rain?
What is a dog with no human to tame?
Is a ladybug judged by it's scattered black spots?
If you consider no questions, you'll answer no thoughts.
My name is Sydney. :]

I'm one part gentle and two parts random.
