An acrostic poem is one where the first letter of every line spells a word, when read in a straight line vertically. The poem should demonstrate or define that word. My poem is a one word description of myself, called “Maverick”.
Majestic. Alone. I’ll go my own way,
Avoiding leaders and followers, what they may say.
Vested now in my solitude and sweet silence,
Envy and conflict, a rare occurrence.
Reaching beyond my own limits, no one judging why,
Incorrigible, a true radical, with authority I’ll vie.
Can you understand my desire to be completely free?
Know that this solitary journey, is the real me.
