John Marsden Writing Topic #313

Write a poem in which every line begins with the word ‘now’.**

Day One

Now is the time,

Now is the day,

Now or never,

Now is right.

Now is the New Year,

Now is Day One,

Now is the start of the new you.

Now it’s your turn,

Now you say, “my name is Kirsty, and I’m an alcoholic.”

Now you can change.

This poem is the prequel to my short story, Resolutions, which can be read here.
