This form in which I am writing

Have you seen it before?

I know I haven't and I'm

The one writing it.

Others tell me teach me

Say solidly that every poem

Must have a form to follow.

It's easier this way don't

Try to argue;

This is the way it's done and

The only way for you.

In my thinking though

A poem shouldn't have

To follow what others need to hear

In the words of Eminem

I shouldn't have to rhyme these words in a rhythm

For you to know it's a rap.

If that is true

Why can't poetry be like that?
