Poets who make it through day three are the most likely to make it through the entire month. So get writing!
For today's prompt, write a misguided poem. The poem could be about a misguided person. Or it could be narrated by a misguided person. Or reveal a bad idea. Or well, whichever misguided direction you want to take it.
Remember: These prompts are springboards to creativity. Use them to expand your possibilities, not limit them.

Here’s my attempt at a Misguided Poem:
“It Made Sense at the Time”
looking up at the clouds
on my back
in the cold
feeling pain throughout my body
I'm pretty sure
ice skating is not
what I should be doing
with my life.
