Favorite Quote:
Knowing is not enough; we must apply.
Willing is not enough; we must do.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

"Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you're right"
- Henry Ford

A metaphor
An analogy
A simile
An allusion
And an alliteration for good measure
Checked off the list
There I have poetry.
I have a master piece that commands respect
Thanks so dearly for creating this assignment
I am sure that my poetry will vastly improve
If not for you I would be hopelessly confused
Baffled by the principles of literature
Had it not been for this assignment I would have been lost
Somewhere between the metaphor and analogy I would have taken the wrong turn
Was I to go left?
Why is it that of so many paths I was to choose just this one?
Why am I confined to this box, trapped inside like a mime?
Poetry isn’t a list of literate principles or any grouping of words
Poetry is more than that
I will not be confined
I will not be trapped in this box
I will break free
I will create a masterpiece!
