Alone Time

“The Random Word Generator is a tool to help you create a list of random words.”


Sometimes I have difficulties with thinking of things to write about. I want to remain constant with my writing skills. I have been somewhat busy with my new job lately, so I knew that I had to get on here and write at least a poem…or something!

Unfortunately, I had writer’s block. When that occurs, I like to use the Random Word Generator to write a small descriptive piece or poem. My goal is to try to get the words out as quickly and effectively as possible. In other words, I want it to sound good but also as a fun exercise for me, I also want to try to get myself to think fast. This one took about five to ten minutes to produce…enjoy my marvelous fans!

Here are my 10 words: stream, build, sit (I used past tense on this one), lovely, strike, discreet, judge, separate, alike, smash



Alone Time

She sat beside the lovely stream.
She enjoyed the idea
That she could be herself.
It was discreet and separate
From the people
Who always tried to judge her.
They never wanted to see
How much alike they really were.
Instead, they chose to strike her
When she was down–
Smash her hopes and dreams.
They seemed opposed
To helping her build
Her confidence.
She felt alone–
But there,
She felt vibrant,
And at peace.

        I love playing with words and rhymes to kind of churn out the emotions in my heart that being a loner I wasn’t able to express so yea I love poetry as well coz it gives me a platform / outlet to express myself
