I am your dream. 
I am your nightmare.
I am your sanity.
I am your insanity.
I am you.
I am your happiness.
I am your sadness.
I am your love.
I am your hate
I am you.
I am your fear.
I am your courage.
I am your hope.
I am your despair.
I am you.
I am your body.
I am your soul.
I am your life.
I am your death.
I am you.
*As a part of NaPoWriMo. #25
*The prompt by NaPoWriMo today was: Anaphora is a literary term for the practice of repeating certain words or phrases at the beginning of multiple clauses or, in the case of a poem, multiple lines. The phrase “A time to,” as used in the third Chapter of Ecclesiastes, is a good example of anaphora. But you don’t have to be the Old Testament (or a Byrds song) to use anaphora. Allen Ginsberg used it in Howl, for example. Thispost by Rebecca Hazelton on the Poetry Foundation’s blog gives other great examples of anaphora in action, from Martin Luther King Jr’s “I Have a Dream” speech to Homer Simpson. So today, I challenge you to write a poem that uses anaphora. Find a phrase, and stick with it — learn how far it can go.” 
*Also, do visit my friends who are participating in the challenge. You won’t be disappointed.
