        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.

    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.
