I always hated writing sonnets and haikus.

I never understood why we used rhyme schemes.

Not because i hated the forms, but because to me art is free form. The creator determines the shape the creation takes. It’s the same reason I hated writing essays in high school. I had (and have) so much to say, but they have been trying to squeeze my writing into a mold since i could spell my name.
