Why Poetry Matters: Day of Silence Poem - Due Monday

For Monday's HWK - Click Here:   Why Poetry Matters: Day of Silence Poem - Due Monday

After Friday's class - see previous post.

I would like you to respond in verse.

WRITE a thoughtful POEM that incorporates words, thoughts, ideas from the videos from FRIDAY (or below).

You've also made a list of 100 fears and desires..
Perhaps, revisit those lists,
and see if there is any creative catalyst to a poem. 

BE SURE to POST your POEM to YOUR (individual) BLOG -

and PRINT a HARD COPY for Monday.

Consider the following titles - free to create your own: 

"Get over it"

"Kids Can Be Cruel"

"They were wrong."

"The Underdog"

"Stop it"

"This is who I am"

"My Closet"

"Be Real"


"I love Nathan Lane"

"Be Authentic"

"Never Apologize"

"Your Story"

"Bust a Door Open"

What do you think would be a good title for a poem after hearing these videos?

Share title ideas:

If you haven't seen these TED Talks yet...

And you need a little courage to share your poem.

Watch these this weekend. We all have a story or a poem to share.
