Fire Alive


“Love is the centre of the universe,

that might be a weakness,

that might disappear,

that hold you tied until you breath and feel alive.


Breaking the chains that hold you tied.

As hot as hell, trying to escape.

Trying to run, from your heart, to the sky.

Until you fell to your knees that had been bleeding from the start.


Spinning and turning the feelings are burning,

like fire mirrors joining together.

Nothing changed, everything’s the same,

feelings flying from heaven far away.


We are broken boys singing a serenade, that exclaims that everything is creep as a black hole where sun scapes.


We are the only one who knows that the world might stop, cause we know that we don’t own our own mind. 

I’m not trying to go to the other side; to paradise”




         In one of the first classes of November, we had a new challenge. Write a poem. How? Pato could just asked us to grab pen and paper and write, but instead, she told us to look for a picture that we took inside our cellphone’s gallery. The activity consisted on writing five nouns, five adjectives and five verbs that we could see through the picture.

        Secondly, when we found the words, we should think of different literary devices and write a sentence or words that came to our mind, of course inspired in the photo. 

        Tertiary, this was the time to start writing he poem. In which we should include all the metaphors, similes… the nouns, verbs and adjectives that we thought before. 

        Moreover, while looking for the right picture, found a caption that I took on Le Parc’s exposition. He uses mirrors and light to create shadows and different visual effects. 


         When I started writing the poem, I realized that some days ago I wrote some sentences (short poems) and were related to the idea that I wanted to transmit, so I decided to cut some phrases and combine them. The strength of this work is that readers could understand it in different manners, with different views. Besides, it also have weaknesses, that by having some many interpretations, readers can be confused of the main idea. Also, that the poem mix different knowledge and may be a little disorganized. Moreover, If I could have more time, I could improve the organisation and also could include more ideas with more deep thoughts. 


If I could connect this project with real life, I would relate the poem with our souls and feelings. How we gave ups but we stand ups, how our feelings change everyday. By writing this poem, I realized that sometimes people doesn’t show how they are feelings until they give up, and in that moment we transformed our feeling to fire. 


When we finish writing the poem, we join together with a classmate and give feedback using the following chart. It was really useful to follow how to give feedback, because if not, It would be more complicated and difficult to analyze each aspect of the classmate’s poem.
