Pick and emotion, make it the title of your poem, and then, write your poem. Possible titles might include: happy, sad, angry.
I look for distractions in life
to tear me away from all strife–
murders, homeless, shrinking wildlife.
Cuts like a knife, cuts like a knife
Will there be no peace in my time?
I am fearful of who may climb
to power, then turn on a dime.
Like soured wine, like soured wine
We would all love to feel secure,
get out of this endless detour
where villains think us, impure.
I hope we endure, I hope we endure
