This poem express opposite opinions depending which way you read it. This was my first time I wrote a poem in reverse and it was a challenge. Please forgive me if this don’t make sense. I will edit this eventually.
I am a failure
and I reject the fact that
I am a savior.
I realize this may be a shock, but
me having potential of being a pastor,
is a lie.
Blessings is not guaranteed every hour
In 30 years, I will tell the youth that
I have my responsibilities straight because
The devil’s tactics
is more prominent than
praying to Jesus.
Jesus is at the top of the ladder,
but this is will not matter,
humans continue to kill each other.
Satan is unconquerable
and I do not believe that
God is almighty and powerful.
Since I don’t always make the best choice,
the best choice
was leaving God
Now re-read this poem from bottom to top(in reverse).
Poetry is my heart and soul
Being a poet is my ultimate goal
I can view things in any direction.
God blessed me with an imagination
I break down words and dissect them.
I provide lessons and deep questions.
I’m imagining my writing being published.
Life around me is poetic
I can write 2 poems in day
Hell I can write 2 poems at a time.
I just need the space.
I just need the time.
Like a crossword puzzle
the words I will find.
Like a detective digging for clues
to solve a crime.
Dig into my mind
and my pencil is a shovel
as I write.
I want to be the best poet of all time
by writing whats right
and my style is I write
how I feel.
Like wheel of fortunate
each line on paper is blank
and the words I fill
until I completely express how I feel.
Words can kill
and I can slay
but words are uplifting
and I can heal.
I can’t even explain
how I do it.
All I know is I was blessed with a talent.
With pure silence
I find the zone when I’m alone.
close my eyes
like Dorthy for wanting to go back home.
Every situation I bring to light
like a document you can’t see in the dark.
As long as the pencil point is sharp
I will write poetry
until the beat inside my heart stops.
