5 minute poem

We are put on our honor
To write a poem in 5 minutes.
We can’t take time to proof it
If we really want to win it.
This is a heavy order,
AndI I’ll try my very best,
But I always got so nervous
When I had to take a test.
I am eying clock before me
And I’’m doing very good
But if I make mistakes I cannot
Repair them as I should.
Since I have grown older
It takes longer just t get

    I could sure get the whole "process" of your writing while seeing this one with your notes!! I called mine a five min. poem but actually I was surprised I did it in just 3 minutes but had to take two min. to edit!!!

    lol. You did well, Joyce. I'd never chance a challenge like this, as I take forever to come up with a decent piece. Good luck in the contest, my friend. Licia :-)

    I like this challenge. Joyce, i write with this idea. I give myself a limit to write whats on my mind. Sometimes I come up with awesome things in 5 minutes. A wonderful poem, under 5 minutes... LINDA
