FORMALITY

I've always hated form. It's like those little toy balls you used to play with as kids that had the shaped holes,
and the corresponding blocks you were supposed to put in them. Sometimes, you just really wanted the star
to go through the square hole, but it never worked. Writing poetry when I'm bound by form is somewhat the
same for me. I have an idea, an expression, and I just feel like it should be a star and not a square. But after
taking the class, I've realized that form does have some benefits, and it opens your mind and gets you thinking
in a whole different way. So, even if I never write a formal poem again in my life,
I'm the better for having taken the class.
