I suppose free verse is the best kind,
But I prefer to flow and rhyme.
No complex themes to understand
Just something that flows from the hands.
Is it really plain to see?
Why is it not so clear to me?
I've tried and tried with all my might,
I guess I'll just give up the fight.
I just don't seem to comprehend
Why the poem has to end,
With a flowery verse for you
When the poem tells it true.
