To be honest at the start of this project i was thinking to myself
“why the hell are we doing poetry this isn’t what iv signed up for”
But now this small project has past and i have had my feedback and creative criticism i am quite happen with the out come of my poetic yes piece, i chose do my poem on somali pirates. A subject which the image we have from the media is shrouding our opinions on what and why they do piracy in somalia, the media never got into the full story behind there reasons, they make them out to be completely evil and they do piracy frivolously as fun.
But that is far from the truth as i found out once i delved into my deep research I done on the subject which i thoroughly enjoyed SURPRISINGLY, After showing my poetic eyes poem to the group and watching the others I was happy that know body else chose a subject even close to mine, which is what i was aiming for.
When making my poem i wanted to make the group aware that the pirates do have morales behind there piracy and to give the somalians view on the matter and let the group decide how the feel about them, this was criticised though. Ken believes i should display my opinion on the matter rather than leave it open for the viewer.
Looking back at the project know the things i would do differently is not change my voice on the piece, i did this to add to the somber, eery tone of the poem. Although this was the wrong decision and I would keep my voice original and just practice how i would say the poem.
