"DEAR BLANK CHALLENGE" PLEASE PLEASE READ THIS AND REPOST TRY TO KEEP IT GOING: HELLOPOETRY "DEAR BLANK" CHALLENGE SECRET SANTA POEMS EXCEPT NOT SECRET AND NOT SANTA RANDOM ACT/POEM OF KINDNESS STRANGER POETRY APPRECIATION
I thought it might be nice to do like a secret santa thingy on hellopoetry only not secret and not santa… what I mean is, find a random stranger you literally have never met and do NOT know at all whose poetry you like and spend actual time genuinely reading their work, picking out your favorite lines and responding to them, pondering them, etc. Write something positive to them and post it as a poem with their name in the title. The “DEAR BLANK” challenge only you put their name instead of “blank”. I think we could all use a little recognition that we exist and are worth something since everyone seems a little depressed on here (including myself) which is fine, it’s a great outlet but it would be nice for people to just spontaneously find that a random stranger spent time in their life just to recognize you and care about your poetry. To write a kind poem/letter to them responding to lines in their poetry. If you need an example I just posted DEAR IMALRIGHT which was exactly what I meant. Check out imalright's poetry btw it is amazing.
I plan on doing for more than one person and I'd love for you to do the same. Spread a little kindness, we could all use a little.
Also message me if you are going to do the challenge and message the stranger you do the DEAR BLANK challenge for so they know to look for and read your poem.
I just thought that Imalright who was a perfect stranger to me seemed like a wonderful poet and a wonderful person based on her poetry so I chose her.
You do that too if you accept the DEAR BLANK challenge.
INCLUDE DEARBLANKCHALLENGE AS A HASHTAG IF YOU DO THE CHALLENGE SO EVERYONE CAN FIND THEM
please repost this over and over so we can get as many people involved as possible and try and make a difference in a couple people's lives because I just want to make everyone feel loved but I'm just one girl, I can't do it alone. Please help me with this and join me in the DEAR BLANK challenge. Take time out of your day to properly appreciate someone's poetry who you do not know.
PLEASE REPOST LET'S GET EVERYONE INVOLVED!!! ;D
DEAR BLANK CHALLENGE
Don't allow yourself to feel "dumb" or "stupid" based on your inability to achieve something you care little about.

Why did you change?
You were great the way you were
I loved your bubbly laugh
And the way you
Flipped your hair
Why did you change?
We used to joke and laugh together
And you comforted me when I was depressed and gloomy
But now you're as cold was the wind on a wintry day
Never looking back or thinking about me
Why did you change?
This happened to my friend
We used to be BFF's
And then she moved to the popular side and was very mean to me
We haven't talked since
When you smiled
When you walked
When you talked
I followed in your footsteps
When you were gone
Now that the traces
Of your footfalls
Have washed away
What should I do?
If I wore prettier clothes
Would you like me?
If I wore makeup
And wore fancy clothes
Would you accept me?
Would you only have me if I was pretty?
Did what was inside matter?
Did you have to change me?
So I could be perfect?
This is a poem about being yourself
Tell me if u like it!
Falling down, getting a F instead of an A
A drop in your average, the difference between average and excellent
Intelligence, that you didn't have
Loathing that you feel at yourself for making mistakes
U feel as if the pressure of trying it do good is weighing you down
Remorse, that you couldn't be as good as your friends
Excellence, what you strive to have next time
This an acronym poem for failure
It is not that good
The slam of the door
The blood on the walls
Something was taken
