Introduction
These poems are all written based off of my, Miciah’s, opinions. I have a distinct perspective on religion, therefore I chose to write a poem describing hate and love and how I thing religion is a dumb idea. My poem is titled “Hate and Love”, based off of the poem “Fire and Ice” by Robert Frost. In it I concur to what religion claims, symbolically saying that religion is wrong and not serious.

I used the three unrhymed lines of five, seven and five syllables found in the haiku “After Basho” by Carolyn Kizer. “Once Called Home” is a meaningful poem that I related with my really years about my life before and during fostercare before I got adopted. This poem that I wrote is based off of “Tyger” by William Blake. I chose this poem as the model for...
