My fear we write poems #14 a list poem

I’m not afraid of anything

I’d never;

              Jump off a bridge or

              a cliff

you can’t put me in a box

                                     with just a cord about my waist

                                     or my ankle

Jump out of a plane

                             just a pack on my back

                             pull a cord and make my safety secure

you could wrap me round

a silly go round

I’m afraid of some things

  1. I like the playfulness of this one, Pamela. Seems as though you were thinking out loud. I think the layout lends to that feel wonderfully.

  2. I feel the same way, especially about bungee jumping! Too dangerous for a brave person like me, LOL. Beautifully written!

  4. I have done many things, some that taught me lasting deep rooted lessons, others the lesson that I'll never try that again. I too like the playfulness in your poem, but then it is in play that we learn best. I like the structure of the piece that puts me in mind of a child playing hide and seek, or some other silly go-round.

  5. I was struk by the first line "I'm not afraid of amything" as compared to the ending "I'm afraid of some things." Nice writing, Pamela.

  6. You can't even get me *on* a high bridge or cliff. Well done, P!

  7. Nice, Pamela! I like the way you start with hyperbole, qualify it, then admit it's not quite right. So real!
