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!


31. 31st Jan: Hope Keeps Us Alive

Date: Saturday 31st January 2015

Style: Free Verse

Title: Hope Keeps Us Alive


Hope is a cruel mistress

Teasing us with her fantasies

Egging us on with her dreams

She always wants exactly what we want


It is hope that keeps us alive

Clutching to its coattails like a child

Grinding on through another hard day

Soaring away on the bus with our eyes closed


If I could just win the lottery

If I could just get on a reality show

If I could just write a book

If I could just... achieve my dreams


Oh, how I hold on to hope

As my life is not as a want it to be

Because without hope there is no future

Yes, it is hope that keeps us alive
