Dedication

I dedicate these poems to my family and friends


What is poetry and how can it be used to communicate freedom? Poetry is a literary work where people can express there feelings and ideas by using distinctive style and rhythm and rhyme. Poetry can be used to communicate freedom because you can express your feelings of how you feel about freedom. In every poem there is a message being expressed. Poetry uses imagery, so the reader receives a message that is powerful. For example in two of my poems I use the image of a bowl in different ways. In one poem the bowl is a prison and in the other the bowl is freedom. Poetry is a great way for people to understand big ideas, difficult concepts like freedoms.


Wild, Young and Free Trees Potted tree Bounded with loneliness Afraid Forest trees Free with happiness Touching the turquoise skies


Statement on Intent In my poem “Wild, young and free trees” I am trying to say that some people don’t have very many opportunities in life and if you have one you should take it. At first I called this poem potted tree because that was my draft poem and then I decided to call it Wild, young trees. I changed the name of my poem because I thought that potted tree was a little too plain and wild, young trees sounded more like a name of a poem to me. I am also trying to say that people that have boundaries are not free and people without boundaries are free. In my poem Wild, you trees I use the literary devises contrast, imagery and comparison. I think that these three devises deliver my message effectively because some people are visual learners and if I use imagery then people who are visual learners can imagine this in their heads or even could make a nice drawing with what they imagine. I think that the devise comparison is also a good devise to have in a poem because then it is easy to see the poem and how other things can be compared to that object. I also think that the device contrast is a good devise to include in a poem because it makes the poem contrast with everything else. I used the literary devises in my poem to make my poem more interesting for the reader. For imagery I used imagery so that the reader could see and imagine what I was trying to say, so that the reader can see what I am saying in my poem. I used Comparison because comparing two things is good to use in a poem because then you can actually see what it is on a scale. I used contrast to make the poem fit with the topic freedom. I know that my message is delivered effectively because I had some other people like my friends read it and they said that it is obvious that the topics of my poems were related to freedom. I also think that my message of freedom is delivered effectively because I use things in my poem that not many people would compare their things too. I put myself on a scale out of 1-10 and I put myself on 7. I put myself on 7 because I don’t think that my poems are perfect, I think that my poems are good. In my poem Wild, young and free trees I am trying to say that some people don’t have very many opportunities in life and if you have one you should take it.

I really like this poem that I have written.


Once a fish He live in a bowl This fish loved to swish In his bowl This fish was not a happy fish Because he had no freedom He was stuck in this bowl This fish was named James

His bowl was prison He was so unlucky He truly wanted to be free Free like a flowing stream Then the family That owned James Moved away Missing James The family set James free After that day James Felt free forever Finally free

Statement on Intent In my poem “James the goldfish” I am trying to say that if you are captured and kept or put in a cage then you should not worry about it even if it is for a long time you will still be free, eventually. I developed my idea by just thinking of what it would be like if I lived in a bowl and I don’t think I would like it very much. There would not be very much to do but swish around and swim in circles. I would much rather live in a big lake or river with other fish. I once had a goldfish and I never thought about how it felt in this small bowl. Now I have actually thought about how it would be to live in someone else’s shoes. In my poem I use the literary devises imagery, metaphors and onomatopoeias. I used imagery so that the readers can receive the message of the poem more easily. I think that mostly every poem has imagery in it and so that can deliver the message effectively. I think that having popular literary devises will and can deliver my message effectively. I used onomatopoeia so that it would make my poem sound like and poem and not a story. Onomatopoeias can deliver the message effectively because it sounds more fun and fascinating to read. In my poem James the goldfish I used the onomatopoeia in the end. I wrote “felt free forever, finally free”. I used the literary devises to help me make my poem better by putting then in my poem. For imagery I used it so that the reader can see what my message is I used imagery throughout my whole my poem. I used metaphors in my poem; I used the metaphors so that my poem would be more original and not sound so much like a story. I used the metaphor in the middle of my poem. I used two metaphors, one “his bowl was prison” and two “free like a flowing stream”. I used onomatopoeia in my poem. In my poem I had one onomatopoeia this was at the end of my poem. I think that having a onomatopoeia in my poem is a good thing because I think that it makes my poem more fun and more fun to read. I know that my message is delivered effectively because I have had someone in my family read this and they helped me edit this poem. At first my family said that they did not really understand the poem but they got it in the end. They got my message of the poem but they thought at first the poem was too much like a story. In the end I fixed up my poem and it looked and turned in to a poem and not a story. I think that my message that I have expressed in this poem is very important because the message is that if you are in captivity you will eventually be free, no matter how long it takes.


There was once a bag of Doritos sitting in a store Waiting for someone to buy Their flavor, the newest of new As costumers came and went Continued on and on and on Until one day a brave person took me home A new place and a new shelf Free like a bag of opened chips waiting to be opened so that I could breath again waiting , waiting and waiting suddenly out of the blue grabbed off the shelf Torn open finally, could breath again Free of the bag and in a big bowl Site


Statement on Intent In my poem “just sitting on the self” I am saying that no matter how long it takes you will always be free. It is kind of like you are the shop owner and you are waiting for someone to buy your foods that you sell. So you and the bag of chips feel the same way. I used imagery and some similes. I used these devices to deliver my message more effectively. I think if a poem with just imagery would not deliver a message very effectively so I added a simile. I think that my message was delivered effectively because of the powerfulness that was used in the poem. I used the literary devises in my poem so that I could have a more readable poem. I used my literary devise simile so that I could make my poem more interesting and fun to read. I used the simile towards the end of my poem. In my poem I said “free like a bag of opened chips”. I used imagery in my poem too. I personally can imagine a bag of chips just sitting on the shelf waiting for someone to buy them. I know that right now in a mini mart there is a bag of chips just waiting to be taken off the shelf and brought home. I know that my message is delivered effectively because I have had someone else read my poem. I asked my family to read my poem and they got the message crystal clear. I think that my message that I put in my poem is that if you are stuck somewhere and feel captured and not free then don’t worry because you will be free soon.


Found Poem Speech: If you enter this world knowing you are loved and you leave this world knowing the same, then everything that happens in between can be dealt with. Site Poem: New Born

New born Knowing that you are loved Perish leaving Knowing that you feel the same Everything that happens When you are blooming Can be handled with Old age Knowing that you are loved Breathing you last breath leaving knowing that, you feel the same Everything that happens When you are wilting Can be dealt with


Statement on Intent In my found poem “new born” I am saying that you a born and you are loved by so many people and you feel free because of all this love. Then you are getting old and don’t feel the same but everything that happens between this can be handled with you can feel free and loved again. I use imagery; imagery is a very, very powerful device to use in poetry. I think that imagery can make a difference in a poem, a big one. I think this because your imagination is much bigger than what you say. So if you can imagine something like this then it is truly amazing. I used imagery throughout my whole poem. I used it in all the stanzas. I think that people can imagine things so much that their imagination can take then anywhere they want to go. I think that I used this literary devise imagery well in my found poem. I think that imagery means imagining things that is in a speech or a poem. Something where you can see a picture that does not have a picture already. For example in a chapter book there are usually no images and by reading the book you can come up will a lot of images in your mind that can match the text. I know that my message in my found poem is delivered effectively because the speech is about freedom and I can trust myself and that text that my message is delivered effectively. I think that this message is important because it is important that people know what’s happening in this world. If people don’t know then they can’t help find solutions for our world. Our world needs to be peaceful and full of freedom.


Haiku # 1

My little hard life Closed, Alone, filled with dark fear I am suffering


Haiku # 2 Free Big open space Sunshine, bright, green brand new day Finally Freedom


Statement on Intent for Haiku 2 In my haiku I am trying to say that there is a big wide open space and there is sunshine and happiness, green and a brand new day, and then finally freedom. So I am trying to say that it is a happy and bright new day so there will automatically be freedom because most people would want to be in a bright green field with sunshine and it is a new day. I used imagery in my haiku. My message is pretty clear in this poem because this poem is short and easy. It kind of says the message right in the poem so you don’t really have to think about what the message is. I think that my message is that if it is a brand new day then it could change your life form being captured to being free. New days can mean the start of something new, change, good change. I used imagery to show what I am picturing, I picture someone that is a slave being released and brought to this brand new day and bright green grassy field with sunshine. I always thought of slaves seeing this dark world and there is not light or really any colour in their world of darkness. I know that my message has been delivered to the readers effectively because I had a vote on which haiku I should use and most people choose the second haiku and that is the one that I am writing about now. I think that my message in this haiku is important because then you can see the comparison. My two haikus are comparisons to each other.
