The Worst Poem Ever

Updated on November 19, 2011

That's Right...This Pic Has Nothing To Do With The Poem!

Trying Not To Write A Poem That Rhymes


Today I took some time to rest.

I thought that this would be best.

Oh shoot, I rhymed when I said I would not.

This may be hard. I guess I forgot.

There I go again—whatever—back to the point. (Look, this one does not rhyme!)

I took the day off and didn't schedule my time.

I decided not to plan but just to do what comes to mind.

The only problem is that I feel antsy and want to write.

But I told myself I'd take a break and just have an "off" night.

I wanted to play a game with my husband but he was tired and took a nap.

Now I'm sitting here, on the couch, trying not to rhyme, and feel like a sap.

Can I only write about things that are deep and profound and complex?

Can I rest without writing? Write without rest? Escape the magnetism of all this text?

If I'm not writing what I'm thinking then I'm thinking about what I'd like to be writing.

Is all of this effort to rest and do nothing worth the effort, discomfort, and the fighting?

I'd rather be writing.

And By The Way...

I recommend writing something just as poor as this to all you perfectionists out there! It helps you get it out of your system. :-)

      Well, Jenna, that wasn't so bad. :0)

      I have written a lot of field reports, essays and research papers in my day, but I have been experimenting with poems as of late.

      In fact, my first two Hubs are poems. I find that writing poems take longer than general writing, but it is more challenging and fun.

      Sometimes it is nice to talk about a serious subject in a poetic prose, if for no other reason than just to be different and try something new.

      Be well, my friend, and thanks for being here.

      @ Sunshine625: Haha! Thanks. I tend to be so serious, deep, and profound, that silliness is a necessity to keep me balanced and sane. :-) Thanks for the comment!

      @lord de cross: Thanks! It was so silly, I posted it just for fun but I guess some people have gotten a laugh out of it which is good! The pic--bad--I know. That was the point. :-)

      Hey, not too bad to get this crowd coming for that catchy Title. We as writers have our ups and downs...and here we are. You did good dear. I suggest to change the pic. Just a suggestion(jk)!

      If this is your worst poem ever I can't wait to read more of your poems. Awesome, made me laugh. I can't help but rhyme in poetry or being deep and complex. Its just the way I flow. Thanks so much for sharing.

      @ Clara kish: Haha! Thanks for the comment. Maybe the next contest for Hub pages could be "The Worst Poem Ever" contest and then we'd have a good chance at winning with entries like this one. :-)

      @Victoria Lynn: Thanks for the vote up! My profile doesn't show the silly part of me as much, does it? I'm pretty much a creature of extremes--I can go from super deep to super silly in a moment. It keeps life interesting. Thanks for the follow!

      Hahaha no doubt that talking to you is like talking to myself... This is so awesome. To find a blessed writer like you and that I can relate to you so easily. It's joyful... :-)

      Thanks Jinny! Although I must warn you--this is the "lightest" Hub I've written so far. I tend to go deep--but try to keep it simple at the same time. :)

      When Writing is in our Blood, "Seek-n-Find" we just have to do it...it's like breathing. We Write and Write both day and night...even if it's only to please one's self. I liked your Poem, light and airy...and now look forward to following your Hubs, and Thanks for the Follow as well.

      LOL Violet Sun...here's an idea for a new genre...ok, an old genre...deep, complex, narratives that rhyme! Let's get pieces like The Odyssey going again but this time it will be non-fiction. :-)

      This made me chuckle. LOL. I could resonate with a few of the things you wrote, such as "Can I only write about things that are deep and profound and complex?" Now if only I could rhyme!

      :-) Thanks jenbouka! A great invention would be a device we can hook up to our brain and it just captures in print every thought. Then again--wait--that would be even more of a random mess. Never mind.

      This is funny and true, especially for me. The things I think about I should write about but it gets lost in translation and I end up with a really random gesture of literature. I found your poem quite witty.

      Some days all I want to do is rhyme. Most of my stuff is pretty bad, too! I need to stay in the kitchen and leave poems to the pros in Hubland.
