Time for -cues music-

PROJECT POETRY

my LA Honors class is doing a "reality show" where our poems get voted on by the other LA Honors class until there is one winner. So for each round, I figured I'd post my poems.

Round 1: Write a Short Poem, 50 words or less.
Conflicted

Itís either one way,
or
the other.

Have Some Fun
or
Study Hard?

different sources
give contrasting advice.

Just Be Yourself
or
Why Canít You be like Everybody Else?

back and forth;
there are choices to make.

Just Relax
or
Get Involved?

What should I do?
Iím simply
Conflicted

Did not get eliminated!! Judges had nothing but praise for above poem ! Woot !

Round 2: Metaphor Poem:


Guilt

Guilt is a hulking wolf,
who blends in with the brush.
A menacing figure he may be,
but every move is hushed.

His golden gaze on your back,
is a silent weight on your soul.
And for you to repent your sins,
is this monsterís only goal.

This creature follows you everywhere
to nightmares, thoughts and dreams,
And when you finally right your wrong
His amber eyes will gleam.

Back into the foliage he disappears,
To be hidden by the ferns,
Once your actions again turn dire,
the beast will then return

Hey guys ! I won this roundddd ! Yayy my poem goes up on the language arts board, i get immunity for round 3, and i get entered into a contest for 100 bucks and publication !

Round 3: Retelling of a fairytale/myth/nursery rhyme
I have immunity for this round, so I wrote this in literally 5 minutes. Not bad though !

Jack and Jill went up the hill,
and there they met their match,
in the form of three large boys
who began to kick and scratch.

The two young children ran towards home,
A fate that never came,
as Jack was tripped and so was Jill
and the two were never the same

Those boys had hurled out insults
and among those were the threats:
ďNever tell of our doings here,
Or youíll wish weíd never met!Ē

The two at last came home
and were asked what caused their pain
Jack lied about his clumsy fall
and that secret would remain

So as the story of the well was spread
No one would know of the deed:
Of the bullies who hurt the two young kids,
Thus the rhyme will always mislead.

Not my best, but it doesnt matter! Passed round 3, obviouslyy.

Round 4: Take the view of an unanimate object ! We wrote down random objects then picked out of a hat. I picked "stove"

The Stove

I hold your lifeline in a ring of blue flame,
But Iím destined only to smell and see.
Never shall I taste the mythical food:
itís longing at its best, woe is me.

No one ever understands how hard it is,
For the food is placed inches from my face.
My fiery fingers fondly brush the pot,
longing to hold food in my embrace

The soup so salty, and sauce so thick,
so close, and yet so far.
No one sees how itís tantalizing me,
and how blessed those with tongues really are

You turn up the fire even further,
the desire burning hot in my chest,
But no, before the food bubbles over,
you have taken my only request.

It seems so unfair you get to enjoy,
something so trivial to thee,
but for a poor stove that is constantly teased:
itís longing at its best, woe is me.

I ACTUALLY WON THIS ROUND!!! And you know what that means?!?! I'm automattically in the final !! WOOT WOOT. Cause no matter how I do next round, I can't be voted out. So I'll have to make it to the final ! Sooo excited. Plus I'm the only one in my class to have won 2/4 rounds !!! I mean, theres like 16 kids, so thats pretty good ! Now onward to...

Round 5: Shakespearan sonnet. Use his sonnet's rhymescheme to write this poem.

Curiously Paranoid

Hushed whispers seem always to echo,
Never quite reaching my ears.
What they are saying Iíll never know,
But I envision my worst fears.
Mouths moving too quickly for me to read,
A scrawled note causing giggles and stares
A snippet of information is all I need,
As my curiosityís too great to bear.
Waiting patiently for them to turn away
To do a quick hunt through their pack.
Every rule and moral I will disobey
To gain my confidence back.
I locate the notes, and what will I finally expose?
Nothing that is remarkable, but finally, now I know.
