Isn\'t the world of poetry interesting in 2021. Whereas I disagree with you i respect that i am probably in the minority and that your preferences are dominant in our expression.
I find that seeking a rhyme is a practice which limits my expression because there will simply be fewer words available to use with which to convey my message/intent. However, I do occasionally succumb and post a rhyming piece. Composing a five line limerick is of course good fun.

L. B. Mek said:

if Poetry only had one stream
to feed
its depthless Sea
it would have crusted
into those annals
of the obsolete
a long - long time ago
so yes, lets us rhyme
in that tradition
we inherit, when we ink
each word of poetic merit
but let us also, read
with open mind\'s
to Art\'s
never-ending reinvention
of possibility\'s: evergreen generation...

Hi bLq: You pose a problem for me; I claim to attempt to ‘embrace the discipline of rhyme rhythm and uniform line lengths (note no mention of ‘metre’)’ so I’m committed.
Mostly, I think (others to judge) I manage it. But it ain’t easy, takes a lot of metaphorical sweat and isn’t always totally successful. But I do try because I’m committed and feel that my poems which aspire to utilise traditional forms should be judged on that basis. Why? Because hammering out the meaning within parameters clarifies the thought process and leads to greater clarity. How well do you think you did with yours?
BTW this isn’t an invitation to heap praise or condemnation on me or you personally

My mother used to say, \"never let the sun go down on your worries and troubles, you must resolve them before dark.\" Where she\'s from, she believes today perpetuates your tomorrow.. this was a very deep master piece 🌹

L. B. Mek said:

wonderfully worded message of introspection\'s true value,
what we carry within:
no one can ever, price-tag
without our submission, ergo
if we but hold true
to our own self-belief of worth
they can only barter-for
never, may they - take
by force...
an empowering read, thanks for sharing

Those scars may be there but you know you have moved on and are getting better every moment of your life.

A bit of a story as thanks for the poem. although you may not really care I\'ll still share anyway.
I haven\'t been the best of people either, there was a time in my life where all I did was stay inside because I felt like I didn\'t belong outside with everyone else. When I was 15 I developed a skin condition known as \"Pigmented purpuric dermatosis\". Basically, I\'ve got red and purple blotches covering my entire body excluding my face. I believe they serve as a reminder that I haven\'t been the best a human can be. They keep me in check, at least to me they do. But I go outside now, and I have friends. I\'m in a better place, and I hope that some day you look back on your misgivings and laugh at them. Best regards! I really enjoyed the poem.

Hmmm it\'s definitely an inner fight not to hit the vengence trail sometimes. But i guess if one has to succumb then one has to relish it.... till regret sets in.

This one is amazing.
The flow, the pauses and jagged edges of self doubt.

Maybe start commenting on poems/ make friends and your talents will be seen?

I am not a poet
Leisa Niamh said:

Your poem reads well and I enjoyed reading it. I love rhythm and rhyme in poetry and don\'t always understand some of the more complicated stuff. I too am constantly judging my own work and never think its good enough to be shared with others. I do not consider myself clever enough to be a Poet as such but I do like having a go. Keep sharing.

Points of View
Gary Edward Geraci said:

The poem confronts the sticky issue of “toleration”. We aren’t having true dialogue until we can “hear out” the arguments of those we disagree with. Those whom claim to be the most tolerant are usually the ones to try to completely shut down a point of view they disagree with. Sounds a lot like totalitarianism...Good job!
