Write a poem from the point of view of a character struggling to make a decision. Try to keep a set number of syllabus to each line. Here are some sample dilemmas to get you started:
- A man discovers that his fiancé is a murderer. Should he confront her about it? Help him cover it up?
- A teenager’s parents have stipulated the specific college that he/she must attend. He/She must decide whether or not to listen.
- An older, wiser character must decide whether to give advice to a young family member about a similar situation they experienced or to let the youngster work through it alone.
