National Poetry Day 2017
Most days I write a poem to slip inside my son’s lunchbox. Last night we talked about how today was National Poetry Day and so he asked for an extra long one. It’s still bite-sized but I thought I’d share it here. Add your own National Poetry Day poems in the comments below.
I can’t set you free from rules
or unlock every future,
there are things you can’t do
and some things you shouldn’t,
but I can clear the way for you –
at least a little – and not hold you back
when you choose to run.
You can support my writing by heading over to Unbound and pledging for Badtime Stories – a project I’m all fired up about.
