Rebel writer

Oh how I love your expression But how I hate your rule Every time I think I've got it You make me feel a fool Creation shouldn't have these rules Or any guidelines that we follow Creation should just be natural These rules can make me wallow I understand why they are there They make our craft more neat But still creation should be natural Because these guidelines have me beat Why can't I just write my lines And just let my feelings pour Without any scrutiny Just let my soul on paper soar

You have done this perfectly. And please do share your unformatted work! Label it "free verse" and let us truly see your heart ;)

That's actually something I was already planning on. I've just got to be in the right mindset to write, I hate to say it, but most of my writings stem from anger, sadness, or frustration. Then and only then can I truly let real poetry come out.
