News at 7

Take a news paper and write down the first seven words from the first article on the first page. Now take those 7 words and write a 7 line poem that uses all 7 words in it.


Hope, hate, fear and love,
all wrapped up in you.
No good answers.
No way to know.

Things that cannot
be repaired
cannot heal,
but I can’t stay the same.

I am not who you want me to be.
That person has died.
Don’t ask me to return
to that sad and broken doll.
