Free Style Poetry
Poetry can take many shapes. I am not a poet, but sometimes I feel inspired and have to write it down. The poem does not follow any rules, it just comes out – it just is. However, many think that you have to be in a certain mood or inspired in a particular way to write a poem. I disagree. I find that when I feel a “certain inspiration” – not sure how to describe it – I tend to write just poems. They don’t follow a specific feeling, they could be as far to one another in that sense, but they do follow a theme – usually. That is the way it is for me. Other times, I could write about a love affair and next about taxes. That is why I don’t call myself a poet – I don’t follow the rules of poetry. If there would be such a thing, mine would be called “free style poetry.”

If you have never written a poem and sometimes feel the urge but think that you can’t write poetry, write it down anyway. Let the inspiration flow, don’t think about it, write free style – embrace your Muse and let it out.
