Instincts Speak

Instincts Speak

A Lesson by wishystar

Instincts speak as loud as a microphone because when you are sure of something, when you truly believe, you are right.


Instincts Speak
Hello again, poet. Today's lesson mainly concerns instincts. Have you ever felt like you know the perfect rhyme, yet a different word is just... fitting? better? more worthy? Well, instincts speak, and a poem isn't special or original without a bit of your own creative thought mixed inside. Whether long or short, rhyming or not, poetry must have a correct rhythm. And even if whole rhymes with bowl, maybe troll is a better word for the situation (just an example). Consider the following phrase:
O'er the garden fence, under the burrow and past the hedge, there's no end to the land.
This is a very interesting piece (written by my self to use) to use for an example, but it will have to do because as of right now my mind is completely blank. Consider this one as well:
O'er the garden fence, under the burrow and past the hedge, there's no edge to the land.
Sure, it's still what we can call 'good'. But it's not as good as the other one, even though "hedge" rhymes with "edge". Again, poems do not need to rhyme. Some of the very best poems do not. But your instincts speak, and if end sounds better than edge, use end! It will show you put thought into your poem, not just rhyme. This will be the end to this lesson.
