Life as a Gift

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. 😀

Checkout my daily poem:

Day 1: Justice for a Chick

Terms introduced by Writing 102: Poetry.

Check Poetry Foundation for more poetic terms.

  1. 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.”
  2. Simile – A comparison (see Metaphor) made with “as,” “like,” or “than.” In “A Red, Red Rose,”
  3. 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.
  4. 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.” 🙂



I am a simple girl who lives on a peaceful island in the Philippines. I am the passionate author of “The Tunnel of Thoughts” and my newly created blog "Miscellaneousjean". I simply love writing, just like you.
