I Need to Write a Poem


I need to write a poem
But what could I say?
Should I write about school or love?
Or how the sunset looks in May?

Or how about the shining knight
In a princess’ fairytale
A story about how he killed the beast
About how he could never fail?

Or maybe about my biggest dream
To sing upon a stage
In front of a cheering audience
Chanting out my name?

Or perhaps I should write about
My need to write a poem
I need it for Journalism soon
At least it’s not a column.
