The procedure I went through to create my I Remember poem was quite simple. I wanted my poem to reflect my childhood. I wrote down some of my most memorable childhood memories. I found that a lot of them when together. I started to try different ways to combine them together. I wanted to play with structure and sound in this poem. During the process of creating my poem, I did not feel confident about my writing. I felt that I kept revising and revising my work. I thought this was going to be an easy poem to write, but I found it to be the most difficult for me so far. Even though I had a rough time writing my poem, I still enjoyed trying a different style of writing. I learned that it’s hard to write when I place so many restrictions on my writing. I feel that using simple and descriptive lines makes my poem playful. I wanted this poem to be a fun read and I feel that in the end I did accomplish that.
