National Poetry Month Day 21-Golden Shovel

Today’s poem takes lines from a poem I love using the words in order as the last word of each sentence. This form is called a Golden Shovel. The poem I borrowed from is a Nikki Giovanni poem linked -> Ego Tripping (there may be a reason why)

You Think 

You think I’m discouraged but I’m
too good at being myself, so
move back, watch yourself and these hip(s)!
I’m grand, spectacular even.
I’m moving in my
success and,yes,errors
too. You are
not ready! I come correct!

The bold words are the end lines/borrowed words from the poem I chose. Woo-hoo day 21!
