Planted here,
     you grow amidst,
     this urban landscape
     you're forced to exist

Oh how sad I am for you,
     sad that you'll never know
     the world outside,
     this bustling, busy metro

Because you're planted here,
     you're forced to inhale
     the toxic fumes and worse—
     someone even pees on you!

And yet, you're still here
     doing nothing but growing
     in an island between two roads
     growing strong in your humble abode
Day 7- Take a walk until you find a tree you identify with, then write a poem using the tree as a metaphor for yourself or your life.

Nothing ventured,
        nothing gained           
        fear preceded,             
        fear prevailed              

Failure prevented,
        failure evaded
        life unmoving,
        life not worth living
Day 6- Write a poem of any length incorporating every word from your latest Facebook status.

Facebook Status: "Nothing ventured, nothing gained"

When you squeeze too hard
and add me to your drink, be warned
for your eyes, will more than blink!
My eyes! They buuuuurn!

Young women, don't get **annoyed
by young men like Josh or Lloyd

You claim that you were led astray
here now, this is what I say!

When you first exchanged a kiss
you consented, he touch your lips

When each article was undone
his touch, you did not condone

Stumbling into this situation
remember, you made this decision!

Don't claim that you're vindicated
when in as much, you're also convicted!
~Don't do the crime if you can't do the time~

Day 3- Find the nearest book (of any kind). Turn to page 8. Use the first ten full words on the page in a poem. You may use them in any order, anywhere in the poem.

The Book: "I Kissed Dating Goodbye" by Joshua Harris

The Words: Decision, Kiss, Stumble, Article, Annoyed, Young, Women, Led, Astray, and Josh

how it must have felt
I can only imagine...

   It hurts to not know
My first ever haiku!

Knock knock!
   are you still there?
   tell me, did you
   *
remember to care?

Everyone's out
  
embracing life
   now get out of bed
   aren't you
missing** yourself?
to the people I know who are fighting these silent battles

Day 1 - Write a poem where each line starts with a letter from your first name (an acrostic). It can be about anything, but it should not be about you or your name.

He loved till his heart burst!
and all that remained—was a stubborn splinter

Planted too deep, it left him no choice
he endures the hurt,
as it reminds him of *her
Concept borrowed from As Told By Ginger's, "Splinter In my Heart" :)

Day 2- Who was the last person you texted? Write a five line poem to that person.
