Hoping not to bore you...
"Outside The Poets Box" by Diana L Crawford

I like to write in rhyme sometimes
but love free verse far more.
I look for words that do express
A thought or feeling true.

When asked to write a poem on faith, 
I write about a stage instead 
and list each part of humankind
that fits each aspect of a play.

When asked to write one light and sweet,
I choose to write and leave a hole 
to demonstrate a simple word 
so it won’t appear to bore.

When asked to write on topics chosen, 
I try to search my soul inside 
to find a view unlike another
and write outside the poet’s box.
