    Write whats on your mind! It will just come to you! Remember it doesn't always have to rhyme.

    My first poem was about someone that I never got along with, and I just wrote my feelings about them, and what they do and it turned into a poem! I've been writing ever since.

    Write a poem on love . Best of luck .

  • Do you think anything might personal serve as your souce? Do you want to rhyme, or write free verse? VERY BAD example of rhyme:

    Roses are red; Violets are blue

    I think you love me, And I love you, too.

    I prefer free verse....but that's just my style. Any style you like is great, and if you like it, it will be great.
