When I compose a poem I first think about who I want it to be about. Honestly when I'm given an assignment I have to go awhile before jumping in usually. If I wait awhile I let my thoughts process in my head then go into the project and start it. My poem did not turn out the best it could have but it wasn't too bad. I think that it was kind of a challenge to get all the 5 requirements into the poem.
At First Glance You Would See A Stranger,
You May Even Find Him Attractive.
But With A Further Look You See A Man;
Someone Who Makes Mistakes Just Like You Or I Would.
He Has Huge Beautiful Brown Eyes,
So Beautiful You Would Get A Picture As If He Were A Deer In Headlights.
When He Is Really Concentrated On Something He Squints
He Squints Because Although He Needs Glasses He Refuses To Wear Them.
He Looks For Love In His Life,
He Searches So Much You Could Say It Is The Most Important Thing In His Life.
He Puts Love Above His Friends, His Family, and His Kids.
“Daddy, Why her? Why Not Us?”
I believe that Holding On is going to be a good book just by the first few pages we've read. I found it interesting that they were saying that there are a difference between hobos and bums. It stuck me as a different concept to think of them putting different views on people.
