Write a poem that answers the following questions, or at least entertains the questions if no answers are forthcoming. You can be strict with yourself and answer them in the order asked, but that is not necessary. This can be a very short poem--just the answers--or you can ruminate and use stanzas or even sections.
What is something you did that you still feel guilt or shame about?
How do you know when you feel joy?
Where in the world is a place you have visited (or lived) that you would never want to return to?
When you think about the last time you felt truly alone, what were the circumstances and how did you feel?
Who do you think you are becoming going forward?
