Poetry, probably the hardest thing to write on this Earth. Especially haikus. When you finally think you have a great haiku, you re read it, and thinks it’s horrible. So you re write it several times until your content with it. You start to write another haiku and the process continues and continues until your content with what you have created.
Like Fitz said “Poetry is never done, its abandoned.” While working on the haiku project, I learned that you can never finish poetry because a poem can be changed so many times and it can go on for a really, really long time. All the haikus I wrote I changed so many times because I was never happy with the end result with each of my haikus I wrote. I don’t think I have ever wrote a really good haiku but I do know I have wrote some “okay” haikus. Thought it is impossible to wright a perfect haiku. You can always leave a poem how it is and say “its good enough and I think its fine” but you can do even better than what you already have, and you can put more effort into it and make it better. You can do this with everything in life, you can always make you essay better, you lab report better, and how you preform in sports. Everything you do can be done much better. When writing haikus, you have to try to make the words flow and make it sound good but at the sometime it has to make some sense, which I know is hard because I have done this before and I know its hard to write a good haiku. All you have to do when writing haikus is to try.
For example, last year during my 8th grade year while I was playing on squad soccer, when we went up against the JV team we fought real hard but lost zero too four but we knew that we gave it our all and we knew that we gave up a good fight but even thought we lost, we were proud of ourselves because even the JV team admitted that we were pretty good and we out up a good fight.
In life, the only thing people ask of you is to try. When writing you have to try and make it the best it can be. During this project I learned that you can’t always write perfect poetry because there is no such thing as perfect poetry but you can try to write perfect poetry and I grantee you’ll be happy with what you end with.
