What are some inspiring topics for poetry? Topic: How to write a good slam poem
July 19, 2019 / By Danielle
Question: For my English class, we have to write a Slam poem (or basically just a poem about 2 minutes long that you recite out loud in competition). I'm pretty good at rhyming and coming up with stanzas, but I just can't think of a non - cliche, motivational topic. Please don't answer if you don't have specific suggestions, and i don't want to write my poem on incredibly over-used topics like love, sadness, happiness, etc.

How about something like promoting finishing your education or helping out those less fortunate. They sound a little corny but at least they're something different:)

A view of the world from a bug's perspective is nice and specific. "Nature" is too broad; you'd have to narrow that down a bit to get a good poem topic. Water skiing and baking are both activities that you could describe with a lot of vivid sense images -- descriptions of things that a person can see, hear, touch, taste and smell. Images like that are often the keys to a good poem.

My suggestion comes specially from thoughts, mythology, nature, fantasy, little ones, track... fairly some random stuff basically. My general kind is... relatively i do no longer probably have a general, i like all of them! the matters are many times the comparable as my suggestion.

There are lots of things you could do... determination/bravery/strength... world problems and awareness? Pick an issue you feel strongly about... you could write about self awareness and improvement, trying to grow as a person by recognizing your strengths and weaknesses

I come up with 3 things a week I want to work on. I talk to a coach every Monday morning & she finds out how I did the past week. I might revise my goal or just have her hold me accountable for what I said I would do. When I met my coach I had trouble getting out of bed. I have a son that died & I was sick & a mess. Now I love love & look forward to all the things I want to do. I am living my dream life now. I have learned no matter what happiness is a choice & it is your choice no one can make it for you or take it away from you. I now do work I love & make more money than I did before I go on this inspirational journey. I am into positvie thinking I have read many books about the subject. Sometimes when I am typing I have a CD (book on tape) & I listen & ride a stationary bike. I really had a hard time at the begining cause I would set a goal & do nothing so it took alot of persistance. I ended up getting on medication for diabetes. So as I did things, things go better but it was a slower process in the begining. I now focus on what I want & only look at what I don't want as a way to show me what I don't want but I keep my eye on the prize.
