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!


6. 6th Jan: Fatal Flaw?

Date: Tuesday 6th January 2015

Style: Free Verse

Title: Fatal Flaw?

Do I have a 'fatal flaw'?

Do I come from a cursed bloodline?

Perhaps it's nature or nurture?

Some sort of unintelligent design?

Like apples and oranges in a bowl

Everything I touch turns sour

Every endeavour doomed to failure

There will be no greatest hour

Alpha male and the cheerleader

Beta male finishing second

Omega the scapegoat accomplisher

Gamma invisible but accepted

Sigma the manipulative douche

Delta the unwanted

Zeta does he exist?

I think I know which one I am

Some days I really should hold up a mirror to myself less
