My Schoolbag - Poem by MOHAMMAD SKATI

I used to have a pretty schoolbag That contained everything that was attributed to my school's days and My whole pretty memories, A pretty schoolbag is part of any student's life Simply because he needs or she needs To put one's stuffs in it, Careless students throw schoolbags Anywhere and everywhere Simply because they refuse to be organized or to be Interested in the school's life anytime, I respected my school, I respected my whole teachers, I loved my whole classmates, and I loved everyone and everything got attributed To my school's life Simply because I loved my whole school's life, My schoolbag meant everything to me, so It was great and wonderful In what it contained from my first days Until the moments of my graduation. _________________________________________________ _____________________

    You had a fine attitude towards school, teachers, and classmates. To MyPoemList.

    Bri :)

    p.s. the ‘rules’ I learned in school, re capitalization and punctuation when writing prose, are
    NOT followed in your poem. Again you have leeway in these areas I believe due to “Poetic License”.

    Instead of “…my whole teachers” and “..my whole classmates”, I would use:
    “…all of my teachers” OR “..the whole teaching staff” AND “..my whole class” OR “…all of my classmates”.

    I’m pretty/very sure your bag didn’t mean “everything” to you, literally, but for what it was, what it carried, and what it represented to you, it MEANT A GREAT DEAL to you!

    Yes, “careless”, here, seems to imply that they “care less” than you do/did. Not all people think alike! !

    To me, “pretty” implies attractive, something not all will agree upon [one student may find one bag attractive, and another student won’t]. but ….aren’t bags generally judged more on their usefulness and physical properties, NOT including attractiveness? Hmm?

    I would use “stuff”, not “stuffs”; I don’t think I’ve ever heard “stuffs” as a noun, but as a verb, yes!

    I’m not sure of the appropriateness of using “attributed” as you have; I’m really not sure, but ‘we poets’ CAN use ‘poetic license’!
    attribute: verb
    “1. regard something as being caused by (someone or something) .”

    a nice write about your school bag I enjoyed those days. Sometimes I wish I could go back and redo that time in my life. I would even take more interest in my studies. I always wanted high grades and would not settle for less. enjoyed your thoughts (Report) Reply

    Certain things have close associations with our life. So whenever we see them they evoke memories in us! Your school bag is a reminder of your beautiful school days! So you treasure it! (Report) Reply
