Portioning Off Yourself

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

Do you ever feel like you have to portion off parts of your personality for different parts of your life? I often feel this way. Different people in my life get different versions of me based on what I feel they need from me or what I’m willing to share with them. For example at my part-time job I make sure that I’m bringing my more extroverted qualities out. But at the same time, while I’m much more personable there I’m much stricter about the personal information I make available. Write a poem about portioning out yourself based one who you’re with or what you’re doing.

Slow And Steady

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

I’ve never been very good at the whole slow and steady thing. I know that the tortoise and the hare should have taught me that it’s the best way to get things done right in one go. But it turns out I’m not always the most patient person. So for me when a task requires a slower approach it can be a struggle for me to adjust. Do you have the same problem BTs? Write a poem about the benefits or struggles of taking things slow and steady.

A Dream Interrupted

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

DO you ever have dreams so vivid that they actually wake you up? In my experience, you either end up wanting to go back into the dream, or they keep you up to avoid dreaming again. Write a poem about the most vivid dream that you’ve had recently. Did you wish that it would keep going a little bit longer or do you wish you’d never had it? Perhaps there is a middle ground where you have mixed feeling about the dream. Whatever the case may be, what made this dream so powerful?

Not My Problem

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

Write a poem about the relief and freedom of knowing something stressful is no longer your responsibility. How good does it feel to be able to say that’s not my problem but good luck with it. How long did you have to deal with this stressor? How did you gain your freedom? Did someone else take your place? If so, did they volunteer or were they recruited?

More Difficult With Time

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

You know those times where you really should do something, but you don’t, and the longer that you put it off, the harder it gets to will yourself to do it? Write a poem about that struggle. The struggle to motivate yourself after too much time has passed. What was holding you back initially before all the time went by? What made you finally motivated enough to see the task through? Was it a relief to finally do it? Or was it a disaster because of how long you waited?

Shared Misery

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

I’m sure that you’re all familiar with the saying “misery loves company.” I want you to write a poem that gives us your interpretation on this old phrase. Do you view it in a negative light? For example, someone who is miserable will seek to make others feel the same? Or can you put a positive spin on it? For instance, when you share a burden with someone else it can bond you together. I’m sure there are more ways that you can interpret the phrase. What shared miseries will readers see in your poem?

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

Write a poem about the closest you’ve felt to death. Was it a near death experience or something that felt like one? Or were you sick physically or mentally? Or will it be more about the actual proximity between you and a dead body? However, you want to interpret the idea of being near death for this poem go for it.

Poems of Donation

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think about the word donation? Do you think about a specific time when you donated something to someone in need? Or a time when you were relying on the donations of others? Do you think about donating time, money, or objects? Write a poem about some sort of donation that has taken place in your life.

Holding Back Comment

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

Do you ever hold yourself back from saying something because you know it will only lead to trouble? This is a frequent habit of mine. Write a poem that lets loose all the comments that you’ve been holding back. Or at least the comments that you’ve been holding back for a specific situation. Let the poem be your release held back thought can be expressed without having to do any damage.
