        Rhyme is the last thing you should be concerned about. Poetry is all about metaphor and rhyme was abandoned more than 80 years ago

    Spell correctly, and don't write a poem like you're phone texting.

      I believe a 'pommie' is a slang term used to describe a Brit. smile

    If you can't write you can't
    but to write poetry, try researching rhyme and meter
    sometimes good poems come natural
    esp when you're sad, mad, or just lost a loved one or lover.
    write down your feelings, let them flow
    and then tweak it to make it rhyme or look/sound better.

    Read it alound and see what it sounds like.
