My harp is a haven,
From everything that is not right,
My harp is lovely and it has strings,
The strings are pulled really tight,
And when I pull on them,
A song comes out piercing the quiet,
I can make loud notes and soft ones.

Occasionally, I'll get stuck,
With my fingers in the strings,
Then I'll go onto something harder like Canon in D.
Once I play Canon in D,
I go back to the previous song and play it,
With many kinks.
I really think,
That the harder the song,
That there's most likely to be nothing wrong,
But even the simplest ones,
Cause us groans.
I hate when that happens,
How I can see things that are big,
But when they're small,
They seem like Trig.

I practice my two hours,
When they say practice makes perfect,
I realize its a lie.
Feeling makes perfect.
You can't feel a song that simply isn't one.
You can feel a song that is intricate,
And familiar one.
Why can't songs be made to feel and not be without any individuality?

It's not supposed to be structured because it's not supposed to it's just supposed to be.

This is pretty good. There's nothing in particular wrong with the spelling or grammar, however the way you've structured the poem almost makes it sounds like a very young writer wrote it. The rhythym is a bit jarring and I don't think it really suits the poem. Good idea and okay execution. Keep it up!
