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!


48. 17th Feb: The Martyr

Date: Tuesday 17th February 2015

Style: Rhyming Couplets

Title: The Martyr

The Martyr puts everyone else's needs before their own

In an attempt to give their life meaning

Then fish for praise for their so called sacrifices

Their eyes crying, but beaming

They'll bemoan how their selflessness goes unnoticed

Looking and acting unhappy to get attention

Offended easily, expecting much in return

It's like they're waiting for some form of ascension

They think highly of themselves

Will moan to anyone who'll listen

Fishing for sympathy all over the shop

Deluded in their own mission

Refusing all help and assistance

"No, no, I'll just do it on my own"

Early to work, staying late as well

No life, nothing going on at home
