Losing Your Mind (ages 16-21)
I would just like to let everyone know that the sun hasn’t been out for FIVE DAYS. To make it worse, it has been raining non-stop for four and a half of those five days. Due to this odd weather (caused by a hurricane, apparently), I am irritable, sleepy and for all practical purposes, depressed. I cannot stand dark gloomy weather for more than two days in a row. So, everyone around me suffers because I don’t want to talk to or deal with anyone, I don’t want to do anything and I certainly don’t want to go outside.
Does the weather affect your moods? If so, describe what you usually go through when the weather is bad for a long period of time. As a contrast, describe how you feel when the weather is great. Use these notes to construct your poem.
