The Writer Diaries - Micropoetry, November 2016

Well, I certainly wrote more this month than I did last month.

I have no idea whether any of these are any good - but here you go anyway; enjoy! (Or not. Whatever.)

4th November

Princesses are flawless
Pale, weak, & soft
Born to be brides
Princesses don't kiss princesses;
Girls need to be princesses -

7th November

- because your hearts are sweet, aren't they? -
remember that people are people
Who love & live & hope & wish
Just like you

13th November

Fight for hope.
Fight for people.
You'll make mistakes,
Get up & do things better.
Treat people like people.
Love with your whole heart

14th November

People are fallible
They can be selfish
They can be short-sighted
They can be ignorant
The best ones try to do better
Even if they fail

16th November

We told you
That the fire
Was burning
You laughed
And stuck your hand in the flame
Told us to do the same.
Unlike you, we felt the pain

24th November

I see your face
In the weirdest of places
And it never seems
To be good news

24th November

I put my heart
Into it all
& how I tried
To make it count
But you can't please all of the people
All of the time
No matter how you try

  1. I absolutely loveee your micro poetry! We're actually learning how to write it in writers craft at the moment, and I find it so difficult!

    1. Thank youuuu! XD

      Twitter is the ultimate way to keep it short, you literally have no room for excess words! The only real advice I can give is either a) practice a lot, b) develop an annoying habit of having random phrases whirring around your brain, or c) both!

  2. It's great that you were able to write a bit more than usual! I especially like the first one a lot, where you question whether girls really need to be princesses and all :) I think a lot of people can relate to that one.


Comments? I love comments! Talk to me nerdlets!
