Read Amelia Earhart’s poem,”Courage” and write about a character who is courageous enough to do the unthinkable or impossible amidst a sea of cynics and pessimists.
In his poem, Fire-Caught, American poet Langston Hughes writes, about two moths circling flame; one with the power to avoid the temptation of the fire and the other eventually consumed by it. Fire is such a powerful and deadly force, but so is temptation. Resisting the lure of something so gratifying and yet so wicked is often too hard to do. Write about temptation!
