1. Ask the group to discuss the tone of the poem and who they think it is written for.

2. Ask everyone to each write down three words to describe themselves. Then discuss their choice of words in pairs or in small groups.

3. Ask everyone to write their own poem with their three words as the title. In this poem they are the authority on defining themselves.
