That's definitely true as well, but I think trying (and succeeding) to sound "deep" still takes more skill than finding rhyming words.

i saw a bird in a tree
he smiled at me
then i got stung by a bee.

obviously, just because a poem rhymes does not automatically make it a good poem, just as all poems that do not rhyme are not automatically bad.

I never said that either! :P I meant a well crafted rhyming poem is much more deserving of praise then some rather random muttering of words. That kind of people, who think they are deep and profound simply because they made a poem about two lines long, really irritate me. It's reeeally easy to make stuff up if you have no kind of barriers to stick to.

I think poems that don't rhyme are harder to write because you have too many words to choose from.

I disagree. I think it makes it easier BECAUSE of the fact that you have endless possibilities! :P

I used to think I was good at poetry, but I realized later that I just had a knack for rhyming. That's the thing. Rhyming is sort of like a gimmick the poet can hide behind to make a poem sound impressive. I find writing non-rhyming poetry much harder because it has to be deeper and have a meaning without the cutesy rhyming. I also find it a little harder to get the rhythm Montezuma talked about that way.

Of course rhyming poetry can be impressive, too. I'm just generalizing through my own experience.

Yeah well, making "deep" poems can be just as much of a gimmick :P It's easy to make anything sound deep and profound. You just got to use fancy words and make it sound simple at the same time. It's really not as hard as people make it sound.

People should be able to complain about whatever they want, legally.

The BMI test isn't always accurate, anyway.

I do agree that people have the rights to their own opinion, but NOT when it concerns weight! 'Cause it's not an opinion, it's a fact. It's like hearing a rich man complaining about him being poor. You know it's not true.

And I only used the BMI test as temporary solution. Hence why I said: "people, who look stunning", as in: have a great figure!

How about getting your own facts straight BEFORE correcting others?
If you actually read the dictionary, you would know that the word "legitimate" can be defined as "reasonable", which makes sense.

Stop trying so hard to be a smart-****.

Yep, it's really tedious that they create these requirements. Maybe many people are good at dragging things out, but there also A LOT of people, who don't need that extra space. Everyone should be able to decide their length themselves. Every person has their own way of doing things and we should be able to preserve that.

As weird as it may sound to some of you girls; it can also be very annoying for us guys... But it mainly depends on the context and how you feel towards this person.

If people actually hate Nickelback because "they make **** lyrics and music" , then why the hell is no one hating Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry etc? ... It's just a stupid trend, that everybody has to get into.
