Theme for series of poem

The theme can stand alone on motivation, or you can make a theme which starts from motivation poems, and then it moves to some painful moments with tons of tear and then a sunrise of romance or hope.

Theme is necessary if you want to engage your readers and don’t forget there are humans, who still believe in flat earth myth. Ok, let us move with our topic and discuss poem outline.

Time to write

It’s recommended by NASA scientist to recheck all scenarios before taking off. Once you are ready; it is time to write and do not hesitate to write, which you think might not be appropriate.

Fill pages, rectify them, recheck them, add more words, remove lines, add new lines and once everything is complete. Read it a couple of times, and if you feel some change is required, then do it. As your life will be on display through those mixtures of words.


Take up your poem and publish it on your social media, before that do let me know about how mars look like in my comment section.
