As I See – An ABC Poem (A)

As I see that I’m

Becoming someone,

Creating something,

Daring to do more,

Easing my sorrows,

Facing my mistakes,

Gaining confidence,

Hoping once again;

I see who I am.

An ABC Poem

Definition

Poetry in which every word / line begins with a successive letter of the alphabet.

OR

A poem that has 5 lines that create a mood, picture, or feeling. Lines 1 through 4 are made up of words, phrases or clauses – and the first word of each line is in alphabetical order from the first word. Line 5 is one sentence, beginning with any letter.

Note: ABC as a form has been used to describe anything from an Abecedarian poem (above), to an Acrostic poem, and other things. ABC typically has been used as a catch-all for sequential alphabet poems that may not necessarily use the entire alphabet like an Abecedarian poem. So, in reality, “ABC” is just an acrostic poem using successive letters of the alphabet per line or stanza.

Example

A better cat doesn’t exist, four gentle hearts insist. Juggling kittens, leaping, mewing, now overturning pillows–quietly rush, sustain terror–understand: Vitality will explode yawning zzz’s!

by LaVerna B. Johnson

OR

Although things are not perfect
Because of trial or pain
Continue in thanksgiving
Do not begin to blame
Even when the times are hard
Fierce winds are bound to blow
