I must admit that when I started my blog, I discovered that writing poetry came very naturally to me but there was a hitch!
I cannot rhyme for the life of me or stick to the rules of certain poetic forms, in fact, I even don’t know the names of these forms, except haiku or acrostic poems.
What is a meter of a poem? I haven’t the slightest clue, nor do I know different literary devices or literary techniques.
I love to write out my thoughts in poetic form because I feel using fewer words, I can say what I want to say much more effectively, at least I hope so.
So I do call myself a poet ( of a beginner level) even though none of my poems rhyme, though some of them I feel have a certain rhythm to them!
You tell me am I justified in adopting this label or not?
