hi I'm Angelica. I'm in 9th grade an having trouble writing a poem about identity. My English teacher is having my hole class write three poems for my finals and I really need a good grade on it. do you have any way to start a poem or at least help me start one its due tomorrow ?
the instructions for my poetry assignment
one poem about Identity.
one poem must describe a scene. be descriptive and use at least three of the five senses( smell, taste, touch, sight, and sound)
one will be anything you want, so long as it is appropriate.
style: of the above three poem's
one must have a regular rhythm and rhyme scheme.
one must be in free verse.
one will be in style of your own choosing.
The poem about scene will probably be the easiest. You just need to pick a moment from your past that you remember vividly (or you can just make one up, whichever is easiest) Personally i find that i get better graded on the poems i right when they are particularly depressing. You can get a good grade on a happier poem but its easier to get a reaction from something sad
to start pick, pick the setting. the easiest way i start a poem is by using 3 single word lines
she sat heartbroken and depressed
not knowing what to make of her life"
i just made that up on the spot
just build on the three words you started with and you'll have a beautiful poem in no time.
