This is an exercise from a book called Juicy Writing. You had to write a poem beginning with "When I'm" and continue it to 24. It was quite fun to do, even if I can't write poetry :P I hope you enjoy it!
Old, forgotten dirt.
When I’m 14, I’ll get some dirt on my knees and write until my arms fall off.
When I’m 15, I’ll wish I was in University with a boyfriend and a degree.
When I’m 16, I’ll try poetry again.
When I’m 17, I’ll eat two peas instead of one.
When I’m 18, I’ll publish a book filled with blood, sweat and tears.
When I’m 19, I’ll learn to like coffee.
When I’m 20, I’ll laugh louder than all my friends.
When I’m 21, I’ll remember the good times (Moniack) and vow to make more of them – the bigger the better.
When I’m 22, I’ll go crazy and be the person I really am.
When I’m 23, I’ll wonder what it was like to be 13.
When I’m 24, I’ll be different, new and wise – but I’ll never wash the old, forgotten dirt off my knees.
I know it's atrociously bad but what did you think?? Little competition for everyone - post your own "When I'm" poem as a comment or on your own blog and the one I like best will win an award! It can be funny or sad...but try and make it as unique as possible!
See ya later, alligators xx :P
