‘My first time’ ‘I learned’ ‘Be creative’
‘I looked at it and it reminds me of being creative, recording, knowledge, plans, and a connection to where I’m from.’
‘Where’ ‘Grew’ ‘Journal’
I chose these words because of what they tell about me. I traveled a lot, learned many things and improved on them. The journal is only full of class notes and drawings, but its the first that I mean to keep with me because not only is so I have my notes to look at if I forget something, but it keeps the ideas, plans and reminds me of what I want to keep doing in post secondary and beyond, which is being yourself and keep learning. Journals are used to keep a documentary of what someone is, where they traveled, experienced and learned.
From my understanding, poetry is more powerful when their is clear meaning to it. Showing symbols and using words that would make people have a relation, or using symbols to compare what the writer is telling about. Overall, powerful poetry will make an impression on readers and often inspire them on what they like doing.
Doing this exercise had me think that explaining what you know or how you feel doesn’t always have to be done with a written paragraph or essay because a proper written paragraph is the formal way to explain a topic and its made to have readers understand the point made immediately.
