Rhymes

It’s easy to spend too much time

Looking for the perfect rhyme

To match my chosen rhythm

Or fit my favourite system

I used to try to force it

Occasionally outsource it

At times I just gave in

Decided I could not win

But rhymes don’t make the poem

Nor do the rhythm or the form

It’s the meaning that it holds

So I write from my heart and soul

Not caring about the rhyme

Because it’s just not worth the time
