So i have to write a poem modeled off a poem by Langston Hughes. This poem is about mental illness in the world…the problem continues to grow and the stigma continues…people just want to forget about it, shove it in the corner and although that may work for now it will continue to grow until it cant be ignored.
I suck at writing poems so sorry if it sucks i just thought i would post it.
In The Corner
Shoved in the corner.
Out of sight they say.
Swept into the corner of society –
Like a dust bunny being swept under a couch.
But the tides will turn
The dust bunny will continue to grow
Bigger and bigger –
Until it’s impossible to ignore
And then things will change
They’ll wish it was done long ago.
That they had thrown it in the garbage-
Instead of pushing it away
Nothing belongs in the corner.
