Writing 201: Day 3 – Skin, Prose Poetry, Internal Rhyme

Alright everyone, welcome back to Day 3 of the Writing 201 class. The subject is “skin”, the style is “prose poetry”, and the added bones I guess? is “internal rhyme”. Let’s get on with it, shall we?

Are you comfortable with the skin you’re in?

Do you know it’s lines like I know mine?

Do you have freckles or scars?

Is it home to you, no matter what you do?

Are you ok with how it fits and all the odd bits?

You only get one.

It tells the story of everything you’ve ever done,

all your adventures and time in the sun.

Be kind to your skin, it knows where you’ve been.

That’s all for tonight folks. How do you feel about ¬†your skin?
