I found this difficult to write. I had the time but no inspiration and I’m not sure if I even understood what the form and device I used. Anyways! I gave it what I had.
Day 7: Neighbourhood. Ballad. Assonance.
The challenge: write about a neighbourhood, your neighbourhood or a place of community as a poetic ballad and when you can also using assonance. Well, here’s what I’ve got!
This poem has been inspired by many years of going to the same churches I went to as a child until I was a preteen. When I was a child I loved going to church for I had the chance to see my friends and spend time with them, sing songs and have fun. Preteens, I be grudgingly went, teens I went with a blank stare. Now however, my views had changed as it is reflected above. As humans we need community whether we acknowledge it or not. We are meant for relationships and we are made to be relational.
