Give me room to think!
I cannot help I am too big
For my mind is a mountain
The summit obscured by
Drifting clouds of ignorance
Day 2 of Writing 201’s Poetry course: gift, acrostic, simile.
Rhyming is hard when your a non-native in English. So I stick with what I can do and practice in poetic form and device. Not too sure about the device though. Is ‘My mind is a mountain’ strong enough?
I chose to write about the hardship of being a gifted learner, something my eldest son has to deal with. So the title and the acrostic are in contradiction with another.

Hey Irene! For a non-native English speaker, your poem is smashing! Loved it 🙂 English is my second language too, and you know what – Google is my best friend – just type “words rhyming with…” 😀
Such a brilliant poem. It was easy to read, it flowed, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Thank you for the compliment, I’m really happy you liked the flow of it.
