Song of Myself

by: Paige Duren

 

Rejoice today and everyday

Rejoice in the fact that we are alive

Rejoice when looking back at the progress made

Rejoice in the deep valleys and on the high peaks

Everyday rejoice

 

Celebrate over accomplishments

Celebrate the new and the old

Celebrate love and kindness

Celebrate the faithfulness of God

Everyday celebrate

 

Appreciate friends and family

Appreciate individuality

Appreciate laughter and happiness

Appreciate the good in others

Everyday appreciate

*In the style of Walt Whitman’s Song of Myself. *

Paige, I really like the style of this poem. It’s a unique way of interpreting the “Song of Myself” and organizing it in your own way. It has a cool voice to the poem and I like the message and how you’re appreciating everything in life simply because it’s there.

I liked how simple this was and yet, you still managed to get your voice through the piece. I liked the alliteration that you used, it added to the poem and made it a bit more unique I think.
