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!


49. 18th Feb: The Victim

Date: Wednesday 18th February 2015

Style: Rhyming Couplets

Title: The Victim

Victim mentality, the world is against you

Despite any firm evidence this is the case

You keep on believing your learnt behaviour

Ignoring the truth, shouting in its face

You've been hurt, or you hurt somebody yourself

You didn't feel it was your fault

Seeking sympathy for your drama

It's "poor me, poor me," by default

Victims can become victimisers

As the bullied can become bullies too

Hurting those who try to help them

Frustrating what they thought they knew

Your self pity is addictive

It absolves you of all responsibility

You're avoiding taking the blame

The victim should accept their capability

His fault

Her fault

Their fault

Not me

His fault

Her fault

Their fault

Poor me

Not me, not me, poor me
