A sixteen line poem I must write.
It’s for English class so I won’t fight.

I’m not good at rhyming.
I guess I just have to keep trying.

What should it be on, though?
That, I really don’t know.

Whatever I choose I must have passion,
Could it possibly be the latest fashion?

There’s no way that’s true.
How should I think this through?

Should I take a break?
And grab a piece of cake?

No, if I did I might never come back.
I’d never give this poem another whack.

Wait a minute I’m already done.
Now I’ll go and have some fun.

The author's comments:
This poem was for my 8th grade english class. My teacher and dad said it was good which confuses me since I'm not a poet. I want to know what other people think about it, so here it is.

Cute, I love how you wrote poetry while at the same time denying that you could do it. Great job! (Thanks for your comment!)

Like Silver Dawn said, it's very cute. I think you ought to explore poetry some more. I mean, poetry, I think, is just a fancy name for spilling anything out onto a piece of paper. Granted, I have a very liberal sense of what is art and poetry. Anything you write, i'd be happy to read, my friend.
