Prompt 10: For this prompt, you’ll come up with a poem about an object that describes you. First, choose an object. Next, list down the reasons you think the object you chose represents you. From your list of reasons, which one is the most powerful? Which one conveys the strongest image of you? Once you’ve chosen your main image, list down things that support this main image. Build your poem from there.
My object:A rubber band Why it represents me: Quite Resilient Strong Supporting helpful Main Image: Resilient
Supporting themes:Can get through anything Just takes things with stride Survivor Been through a lot but keeps going Like a rubber band
Rubber MeA band made of rubber stretches and reshapes, To whatever it is needed to be today. A band to hold back your hair, Or to roll a paper and keep it there. Most of the time I feel the same, Pulled and tugged in life’s hectic game I wear many different kinds of hats, Mother, baker, fixer, and sometimes dad. Whatever I am needed, I can reshape, I bend and stretch, but do not break.
