We are six days into the challenge now, so I thought maybe it was time to try some poetry. I started out with these lines:
Thinking of this
Thinking of that
Moving to that
Not finishing either
Then I thought maybe I would try some form of poetry I hadn’t done before. So I got online at the Poetry Foundation and decided to try Ottava rima. Here is how it turned out:
No focus- thinking of this, then of that,
So many thoughts crowding into my mind.
Starting to do this, dropping it for that
And not finishing any task, I find.
Worry over this, worry over that-
Heartaches, fears, and frustrations- all combined
Refocus- think clearly, be productive-
Stop worrying, stay calm- trust God and LIVE.
Now I am wondering if I should try to finish the original format so I can see which I like best. What do you think?
