It was very hard for me to write my poem. I just couldn't seem to get my thoughts together at firs.t i was afraid that people would either laugh or deem me incompetent judging by my poetry. i wonder if the great poets of our time felt this way. Of course but they still wrote through these ugly feelings.
Reading and analyzing poetry proves to be quiet a difficult task for me. It is just hard for me to I guess form my own meaning. I feel as if I'm just not "deep" enough for lack of a better word. But i think i did a pretty good job for our poetry analysis essay. It was difficult but I just tried to break down the poetry line by line. it is so much different when i write poetry.
When I write poetry, I can be myself. yes i try to stay within the parameters of what poetry is, not wanting to just spit my feelings out on a page (Wordsworth) butI don't have to worry about anyone elses perspective except for mine. So if I had to chose, of course I would rather write 10 poems than to write 1 essay. Maybe Professor Baxter will trade me.
