I'd like to see you write a poem.
Because it's oh so easy, right?

Well.

Here are the rules-


No Break Up poems.

Nothing about pretty butterflies


Or flowers



or Trees




Or nature in general.

No angsty 'I hate you!' poems

Or "my life sucks and here's why" poems





Don't tell me your life story.
I assure you, I don't care about your melancholy childhood or your family skeltons.

Life.
Death.
We'll have none of those overdone topics.

They're kind of like the dream topic. With it's overdramatics and whatnot.


And don't waste my time

.
Love poems are deifinitely out of the question.
(Highly overrated, and hardly ever well written)

Those are the rules.







Now.
I'd like to see you write a poem.

Because it's oh so easy.

.........Right?


The author's comments:
People who say writing poetry is easy annoy me.
I figure why not take away the main topics and make them think before they write a bunch of garbage about a rose, or how scarred they are because their boyfriend/girlfriend left them.

Seriously.
We think before we write.
Why can't they?

Haha.

True.

In certain circumstance.

After all, there are exceptions to EVERY rule.

And there is ALWAYS artistic license.

:)

Good poem.
