Poetry 365 Challenge: A Poem A Day - 2015

I started this on Inkvite, then Wattpad, now I'm trying out Movellas!

There is no real prize as such, just the adventure of expression, and bettering ourselves as writers.

I'm no poetry expert but used to enjoy writing poems in school. So thought this could be fun and a good way of improving writing skills.

There are no major rules, you can write in any style of poetry you like, as long and short as you like.

I will set set various topics or themes, but again, you can follow your own path if they don't appeal to you.

For example, I think the first poem we write should be on the theme of "New Year's Resolutions" posted on 1st Jan 2015.

I will post the current theme at the top of this page regularly.

Hope you guys like this idea please leave comments letting me know if you support it.

Please share on social media and with your followers if you feel so inclined.

I'm going to use the tag 365 in this so we can find each other's work.

Note: my poems are only semi-biographical!

80. 21st Mar: The Small Prayer

Date: Saturday 21st March 2015
Style: Free Verse
Title: The Small Prayer

I wish to share with you a small prayer
Something I say and do every day
Before I leave the house
To help me on my way

Dear Jesus
Let's do it
Let's make a good day
We can do it

Keep me safe from evil
Keep me safe from sin
Push the devil out
And let Jesus' love shine in

Then I cross myself three times
With the right hand not the left
For these are my beliefs and faith
Hoping to avoid ending up bereft

When I come home I cross myself again
Forgetting tear I may have shed
Whilst looking at a picture of Jesus
Then I say these words in my head

Thank you Jesus
Thank you for a good day
I'm grateful for all the good things in my life
Bless my friends and family
And those less fortunate than myself
These are my small prayers
