Run Away Poem

Once upon a time,
There was a girl
Who was committed
To writing a poem every day
For a month, as well as
Other writing projects,
Work projects,
Volunteer projects,
And a Halloween Vaudeville show,
And she knew she could do it
But sometimes she felt like
She was going to burn out
And feared feeling like a failure
For not completing so many
Things about which she was passionate
Because she really did feel
Strongly about being involved
In each project
But she was still trying
To get over a cold
And was often tired due to
Seasonal Affected Disorder,
So she was feeling the
Strain of being challenged,
Much like the strain
Of trying to read a poem
That is one, run-on sentence
Because it was written due to
A writing prompt that
Asked for one run on sentence
And she just chopped it up
With line breaks
And hoped that her
Next poem would be more
Worth while a read.

(This is my October 27th contribution to Poem A Day October. I used the following writing prompt: Start with a run-on sentence, then chop it into pieces. Or start with single words, and string them together.

I’m also starting a Slam Poetry course this Wednesday, lead by Missie Peters, so hopefully my poetry will improve.)
