Hate Does Not

Write a poem that involves describing something in terms of what it is not, or not like. For example, if you chose a whale as the topic of your poem, you might have lines like “It does not settle down in trees at night, cooing/Nor will it fit in your hand.

 

It does not fill me up with joy, or bring peace to my mind.

It does not bring happiness of every kind.

Never has it been it difficult to find.

It does not create a long lasting hope.

It does not help me let go.

Never has it provided a sense of peace.

It does not give me release.

It does not help me, be a better me.

Never will it feel like a warm summer breeze.
