It's quite simple really, write a palindrome poem; for those that don't know what a palindrome poem is, it's actually easier to display than explain perhaps, but basically it's kind of like a mirror... What I mean is quite simply you write lines straight forward then write the same lines backwards and they should make sense even read in reverse. The lines written forwards then backwards might not have the same meaning but it still makes sense reading it backwards. For example here is one I wrote as part of a little bit longer poem called "Identity Interrogation":
"Crisis identity of father
I don't know
Word against silence
I sever you
Reflecting upon self
Found conscience guilty
Reasonable madness made you
Stabbed and bleeding out
What is disorder?
Emotion puppet to thought
Minced memory and fantasy
I am delusional conspiracy
Faith or myth
Prophet false of fraudulent foresight
Miracle thirsty illness
Vision a mirage
Hallucination a haunting
Demons as angels of faces
Opposites of tugging disaffection
Disaffection tugging of opposites
Faces of angels as demons
Haunting a hallucination
Mirage a vision
Illness thirsty miracle
Foresight fraudulent of false prophet
Myth or faith
Conspiracy delusional am I
Fantasy and memory minced
Thought to puppet emotion
Disorder is what?
Out bleeding and stabbed
You made madness reasonable
Found self upon reflecting
You sever I
Silence against word
Know don't I
Father of identity crisis..."
Another example are the lyrics from the song "Redivider" by a band I love the lyrics of "Silent Planet":
"I am autonomous," You told Father
First immortal, but now fleeting
All creation reveals me about this said time, called death, cursed the reverse
All we bought was brokenness -
That shelter of illusion
You see me see You splitting myself even
There is me, forgiving nothing, manic then depressive - hopelessly sinking
Sister Moon, Brother Sun eclipsed one another, forgiving one another
Death ran away then life flooded in world
This I am: Imbalanced, beautifully so
Hands connected, perhaps...
Then dead reflections saw You
I did, didn't I?
I didn't, did I?
You saw reflections dead then
Perhaps, connected hands...
So beautifully Imbalanced: Am I this world?
In flooded life then away ran Death
Another one forgiving, another one eclipsed, Sun Brother, Moon Sister
Sinking helplessly - depressive then manic, nothing forgiving me is there even myself, splitting? You see me see You
Illusion of shelter: That brokenness was bought, "we all reverse the cursed death called time," said this about me
Reveals creation, all - fleeting, now, but immortal
First Father told you, "Autonomous am I."
(These two examples are based on the premise of bi-polar disorder and I basically mimicked there method to illustrate my own experience, though my words were perhaps a bit more abstract in regards to the subject.)
Your own contributions can be about whatever you'd like them to be as long as they follow the pattern of a palindrome poem. For more insight into what I'm talking about, here's Garrett Russell's (lead singer of silent planet) description of his bands lyrics: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9NsAZsEmY4U
