My Pastiche Poem

I am now in Literary Genre 1: Comedy and Tragedy. I was supposed to write a pastiche poem. A pastiche poem as explained by my instructor is copying the same number of words per line of a poem you had to read. We were assigned to read 'My Father's Love' by Yusef Komunyakaa. If you would like to read it here's the link My Father's Love.
I had no idea what to write at first, but after Skyping with Debra yesterday and talking about our families I chose to write about April. I'll share the paragraph I wrote to get the the idea and the poem itself. The paragraph and poem are slightly different because the paragraph had too many words. I hope everyone likes it. Please tell me what you think.

Grateful for Mom Although you never gave birth to me You always treated me like I was your own You were never afraid to tell me how it was or be there to give me advice You’d butt heads with me with no fear You’d tell me when I’d hurt my father’s feelings You taught me what I neede…

My Possible Futures.

Last week, I was approached by one of my classmates about helping them. I thought it was really cool because I've never been approached about that. Debra came to me after seeing some of my posts in a Facebook group from one of our past classes. The group is called DNW Super Club, and people post relatable and inspirational posts. We started talking and Skyped last week and really hit it off. We really hit it off and been talking since. When she talked to me about it it made my day. ^-^ Debra and I are in the same class, so it's cool we can help each other. I'm glad we can help each other and share our experiences. Debra's the best at getting all that she can out of school and sharing it with others. I'm glad to have met her. :)
Today in therapy, I was talking a bit about what I learned about women in other countries and cultures. I brought up that women in other cultures have it a shit ton harder than American women. But no matter who you are someone always has it…
