Poetry Challenge Day 8 – Forced Poetry Lacks Inspiration

I looked up the writing prompt this morning from the NaPoWriMo blog site to see what ideas they had. It was suggested to write a poem with the rhyming pattern A-B-A-B-A-B-C-C, so I gave it a try. I will say that I enjoy being inspired much more by the beauty or events surrounding me, than trying to follow a certain pattern. But I made it work and wrote a poem. I don’t like it. I feel like I did it because I had to.

FORCED POETRY LACKS INSPIRATION

The clock keeps ticking 1-2-3
A poem I must write today
A-B-A-B-A-B-C-C
Follow the pattern this way
A few more lines forced out of me
But there’s not much to say
If I wasn’t cramming this would be fun
This is the last line and now I’m done:)
