Poem: ‘Famous Stories’

Okay, so, I wasn’t sure about this one, but thought I’d post it anyway.

I do not actually know all the technical terms for describing poetry or verses and so forgive me if this sounds a bit dense, but the part I’m specifically not sure about is the word ‘theories’ and how it works alongside ‘stories’.

Anyway, here it is ๐Ÿ™‚

Twists, turns,

And hard-won gloriesโ€ฆ

Rewarded triumphs,

And allegoriesโ€ฆ

Proven myths,

And shattered theoriesโ€ฆ

Thus are wrought

Our famous stories.

Thanks for stopping by and constructive/polite comments always welcome.

  1. I really like the slightly oxymoronic quality of “proven myths”, and the way it then contrasts with “shattered stories.” ๐Ÿ™‚

    As for the stories/theories part, the rhyme is not a full one, but that doesn’t matter – it doesn’t always have to be. ๐Ÿ™‚ Especially since Glories/allegories is not a full rhyme either ๐Ÿ™‚ A lot of famous poets use half rhymes. The actual content/meaning of the poem is more important, in my opinion ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. That’s true, it doesn’t always have to be. I need to get out of that mindset – when I write poems, I either entirely don’t rhyme them or I feel they HAVE to rhyme ‘properly’ haha…thank you ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚
