Poem Problems

I need to try
to write a poem
that follows rules.

I don't know what
all the rules are
except a few.

I know rhythms;
I don't know rhymes;
I don't know types.

I've heard of some
like haiku or
sonnets, ballads.

But I am not
good with strict rules;
I like to flow.

No matter how
hard I try, I
can't fit in molds.

I liked this poem, it was kind of interesting that it was a poem about how you didn't know how to follow the rules of writing a poem. I thought it was unique and pretty good. :)
