    Hello fellow poets!
    Lately I've been wanting to try new poetry forms to write with, but I haven't been able to really find any... I normally write free verse, and I'd like to try something out of my comfort zone. Can I have some help?It'd be highly appreciated!

    For those of you who wish to partake in rhyme, it is essential you have a scheme. Rhyme provides a lift of serendipity, but there has to be a pattern for such an emotion to occur.

    For those who wish for Rhythm, rhyme is a part; but the most important part is the metre. For those who wish to experiment, I suggest Iambic Pentameter. It is perhaps the most common form of metre in the English language. It consists of 14 lines of 10 syllables in an iambic fashion of unstressed and stressed. Try it with several poems; remmeber you are experimenting. There is no need for it to be perfect. It just has to be in the format. Then when you feel comfortable, try experimenting even more.

    I wrote this song recently and my friend wrote the music. We gave it to a friend who is with the Grand Ol' Opry and we hope it will be recorded.


    Aw! Somebody made you sad and blue.

    Aw! Someone has made a fool of you.

    Aw! Some thing he said was so unkind.

    Aw! Sometimes he played tricks with your mind.

    Aw! Somehow he got you off your track.

    Aw! Some days you know he won’t come back.

    Aw! Some way you’ll get back on your feet.

    Aw! Sometime your life will be complete.

    Though today the skies are gray and dark.

    And you feel you’ll never find your mark,

    Rise up tall and smile a great big smile.

    Laugh, the sun will shine in just awhile.

    Aw! Somewhere somebody waits for you.

    Aw! Somebody’s heart is broken too.

    Aw! Someone will come because he saw some

    Awesome things in you. You’re awesome.

    I May Not Be

    I May Not Be by Bernard Eseo

    I may not be a singer
    But I’ll sing a thousand times a day
    I may not be writer
    But I’ll write for you without any pay

    I may not be a dancer
    But my actions will express my love
    I may not be an athlete
    But I’ll play by the rules of up above

    I may not be a superhero
    But I’ll save you with a smile
    I may not be a debater
    But I’ll be there within a dial.

    I may not be your Prince Charming
    But I’ll be there to what I can
    I may not always be with you
    But I promise, I’m your number one fan

    - Hope you guys can critique on my poems and this one! Thanks! Appreciated. ;)

    Whatever you may call this, just know that this came from my heart:

    I love poemhunter.com! I thank all the people behind this website for the support they've given to me since I joined in. This encourages me in a lot of ways as I also am taking a degree in BS InfoTech, lucky enough being a gov't scholar to help my family. I am looking forward in the future about working for such wonderful website. I hope it will be as sooner as possible for I want to get my mom to the hospital to get checked up because she now suffers from an illness which really does bother me. If only I can treat her and take away the pain by myself, I wouldn't take the risk of putting my reputation low. I need someone who can help me all for the love of my family. I have my dreams in life and it includes for all the members of my family, especially my dear parents. Out of all the things in life that I could fear, the only thing that would hurt me is if I'd loose someone I love!
