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!

40. 9th Feb: Writer's Block

Date: Monday 9th February 2015

Style: Free Verse

Title: Writer's Block

There's a block of iron in from of me

One hundred feet high

As long as the wall of China

It clouds my mind and vision

It bares down on me

I cannot get passed it to the promised land

No ideas, and when then come

I can't seem to commit to them

A paralysing monolith

Worried about matching past success

Fear of failure holding me back

One day, one day I'll overcome myself
