Steps

  1. 1
    Writing about oneself or ourselves can be very cathartic.
    It allows us to examine our consciousness and subconsciousness and to help us to express them. We also represent a very rich source of material, and perhaps, ourselves are the thing we know most about. Writing about ourselves can help us to get to know ourselves even better.

    It is worth noting that all art is partially autobiographical.
    In our art, we include elements from ourselves and our world because that is what we know best. Here are some elements to consider when writing a poem about yourself.

    Who you are:
    Try to define your personality and character. What are your positives and negatives? What do you wish you could improve on in the future? What would you like to learn to let go?

    Physicality:
    Describe yourself physically. What are your physical attributes? What are your physical flaws? Do you have any unique physical features, like one strange bendy leg, or a very long toe? Use similes to compare yourself to other elements.

    Fears and Desires, Hopes and Dreams:
    What are you afraid of, what makes you nervous, makes you hesitant and gets your stomach churning? What are your worst case scenarios? What would you do if you could? What would be your perfect life, universe, moment, ice cream? How do you hope the future will be and your world within it?

    I crashed my bike into a fence.
    Sting of a grazed knee, flap of wings across water. Now my bike has grown with me. Bigger wheels bigger hands. Sound of foreign tongues outside my window.

    The car became an anathema of conformity and cost.
    Sound of wheels rotating carrying me onwards.

    Here an individual personality is not being expressed.
    But rather characteristics are being subtly revealed, and with examination we can discern a large amount of information about the writer.

One of the best ways to find the inspiration to write about yourself is to pretend you are someone else observing you and see what comes to you. Yet another way is to look in the mirror and start describing to yourself what you see. Record it in a tape recorder and free associate to see what comes to mind. Some people also have success letting their imaginations flow while listening to their favorite music and pretending that they are in a movie about themselves.

How do I write a poem about my life?

My life is really hard, I was a skinny kid when I was 5, but when my mom and dad got divorced I started eating my feelings and life, so all the years of school I went through till now I'm in 8th grade and I'm still being bullied. I always tell an adult but they don't do anything about it. My mom is the only one who ever stands up for me, and I have thought about dying but I would never hurt myself because I would never leave my mom and dad, they are the only thing that really matters to me and I'm the only thing that really matters to them. What I don't understand is that why do bullies feel so low about themselves that they have to make my life and others lives miserable
