100 WC Week #18

The Key That Unlocks


Why am I so confused?

The answer should be easy,

but it’s not.

Should I leave my home

because of the freezing cold,

or stay and bear it?


Look at this key on the ground!

Just dropped by someone!

I have always heard how

keys can unlock doors.

Maybe I need to open one door

and close another.


What’s behind this door

in the garden?

The key unlocks it.

The flowers are dying,

because of the cold.

I need to stay and help

the flowers and more.

I can fulfill my dream here

I don’t need to leave.

  1. Hello Zoe,
    When I first looked at your 100WC entry I found it unusual but I realized it is free verse poetry without a strict meter or rhyme scheme. It made it very interesting to read. Well done.

    1. Hi Mr. Mannell,
      I’m glad you liked my poem for the 100 Word Challenge from last week! I wrote it as a free verse poem because we are reading poems in class, and my teacher challenged us to write our entries as a poem. I thought it would be creative and fun to write my entry this way, so I challenged myself to do it.

  2. Hi Zoe,
    I really enjoyed your entry this week. I think it was a great idea to challenge yourself to write in a new format.
    Well done.

    1. Hi Ms. Brennock,

      I’m glad you enjoyed my entry from this week! My teacher actually suggested that we write our entry as a poem, because we are reading poems in class. I’m glad I challenged myself and I hope to write more poems in the future!
