Finding the Adventure in Life

I live for adventure,
I want to feel the wind,
Rushing through my hair,
The feeling of excitement,
The thrill you can only get from,
Movies and books,
The thrill of roller coasters,
Without the fear or sick feeling,
In your stomach,

I want to explore and discover,
The unknown and unheard of,
To go where no human has,
Dared to go before,
I want to do the things that only happen,
In movies and books,

I want to live to the extreme,
And go beyond the boundaries,
Of all human knowledge,


Travel through time,
Like Back to the Future,
Have my own theme song,
Like all those superhero movies,

This is not reality,
And never will be,
But who cares,
Who would not want,
Life to be action packed,
And full of adventure,

Even if life is not as exciting as,
Your favorite movie or book,
You can make it that way,

All you have to do is,
Not be afraid to be yourself,
And to not be afraid to be bold,
Go ahead, do all the things,
You have always wanted to do,
But never had the courage to do,
Now is your chance, so take it,
And use it wisely.

Yeah pretty much! It depends on what the poem is for; certain publications or classes for school might require specific elements for the poem to have but otherwise no there aren't any rules. Hence the word "free" before verse for the name of the type of poem. I hope that helped. :)

I liked the possitivity in this poem. It makes a reader want to get up and live their life. Good job!
