Day 6: If it doesn’t serve you

“I’d like to challenge you to write a variation of an acrostic poem. But rather than spelling out a word with the first letters of each line, I’d like you to write a poem that reproduces a phrase with the first words of each line. Perhaps you could write a poem in which the first words of each line, read together, reproduce a treasured line of poetry? You could even try using a newspaper headline or something from a magazine article. Whatever you choose, I hope you enjoy this prompt”

If your heart beats fast
It means you’re alive, it
Doesn’t make you unique to 
Serve yourself blackened thoughts
You can rise up high as skyscraping trees
Wash them away like dirt for
It won’t be long before it’s
All stardust and dreams

Away we go
