Second assignment from Writing 201: Poetry
Day 2: Gift, Acrostic (optional), Simile
Life as a Gift
Here comes a man who fight
But keep seeing the seamy side of his life
As noisy as a bee
When he murmured about how bad is his destiny
Yesterday when he was as happy as Larry
He became the life and soul of the party
But now tribulation visits his home
His losses hope and feel alone
Then he questioned the love of God
Blind from his distress and he got mad
This destitute man doesn’t understand what life is
That in good and in bad, Life is still a gift!
Hey guys, my second assignment for Writing 102: Poetry. I hope I’ve done more senses than my first one. 😀

Day 1: Justice for a Chick
Terms introduced by Writing 102: Poetry.
Check Poetry Foundation for more poetic terms.
- Acrostic – A poem in which the first letter of each line spells out a word, name, or phrase when read vertically. See Lewis Carroll’s “A Boat beneath a Sunny Sky.”
- Simile – A comparison (see Metaphor) made with “as,” “like,” or “than.” In “A Red, Red Rose,”
- Haiku– A traditional Japanese form, now popular around the world. Normally (but not necessarily) composed of three lines of verse containing five, seven, and five syllables, respectively.
- Alliteration– The repetition of initial stressed, consonant sounds in a series of words within a phrase or verse line. Alliteration need not reuse all initial consonants; “pizza” and “place” alliterate. Example: “We saw the sea sound sing, we heard the salt sheet tell,” from Dylan Thomas’s “Lie Still, Sleep Becalmed.” Browse poems with alliteration.

Thank you for your precious time. See you tomorrow. Goodnight!
“Good night” and “good morning”
Are worth to say
“Thank you God for this wonderful day”
And “Thank you God for another day.” 🙂
