Let your Pen Dance

Writing is another form of living and that writing poems is another way of expressing your thoughts. I came down here when some of my peers (college classmates) keep talking of how to make a poem of their own. Really? It's a project and about to be submitted next week after our teacher announced. Well, it's a bit of a rush to write and you're about to revise it all over again. Until deadline is here, knocking at your door for your work - not yet done!

It's a cliche for all students, if not all, then maybe others. They need to begin writing the day it was said - but poems came out from inspirations - intense and passionate. That said, poems can be written from a short period of time but with care and will.

Now, let's begin writing your poem.

1. Prepare Materials

Pen and a piece of paper are all a poem needs. But please do take note, if you want to write a successful poem, you need to prepare more of these materials for changes.

2. Begin Writing

Once you prepare your materials, begin writing for what you want to write about. Inspiration is there, anywhere. Maybe it hides down your bed, inside the cabinet or outside your room or you don't really know where it is. Just, write anything first. Don't mind about distractions. Your goal is to write FIRST.

3. Read

After writing your rough draft (yes, it's a rough draft only), begin to read it. You can read it aloud if you have confidence of gaining praise at first or the worst; on the other hand, you want to read it alone, in silence and later read it after you're done of revising.

4. Rewrite

How about the first draft, second and so on...? It's better to rewrite what you wrote and check for something that isn't working or worth reading. Choose writing style (rhyming, free-verse, run-on, etc. Yes, here's where you will think what style of your poem will be.

5. Write the First Draft and so on

After choosing what style of writing, write for the first draft.

  • Note: You don't have to make it perfect. Again, your goal is to make it worth reading.

6. Revise

Your poem will meet your satisfactions if you yourself know how to make it worth reading. Check for grammar, punctuation, and spelling. After checking those, leave it alone for a moment (for two to three days).

7. Share and Start Again (if necessary)

Your work's ready to share. Share it to your family, friends or even a close professional one who can give judgments to your poem. If some of them don't like your work, don't ever think about them. They can give judgments but yours will set the final one. And if you're tired revising, think for a moment and have a passion in writing. Sooner or later, your pen will write on its own.
