So, i thought I’d post up a poem i wrote. It’s an old one, I wrote it about a year back for a competition, but for some reason I didn’t enter it in the end :P
Did I tell you I was once obsessed with poetry? Not obsessed, just really intrigued by it. I still am, kinda. But I’m so busy all the time with random stuff, I haven’t written one in a very long time. I’m always telling myself to start picking up the habit of writing poetry again, but being the slight procrastinator I am, it hasn’t happened yet. Yet.
Anyway, thought i’d post this poem up here cause it’s one of my favorites :) I think it’s beautiful :) What do you think? Please comment on it!
Btw, I know I make such original titles :P
The Storm by JodetteP
Occasionally, just once in a while,
A storm will brew.
With its red and purple and gray and black
And with its clouds that aren’t just a few.
But as the skies turns blue once again
I see a beautiful rainbow form.
My mind it clears, my troubles it drains.
And then suddenly, I turn calm.
As lightning strikes and thunder roars.
I’m reminded of the experiences I’ve had.
They fight hard, like in a war.
And the ending is always as sad.
But as the sun comes out from hiding,
so does my smile.
And these worries, disappear.
After a while.
