Thank you Jan for this excellent lesson. As a novice poet, I didn't really know the different meanings between the poetic terms "forced rhyme", "inexact rhyme"", and "slant rhyme". Before having access to your awesome lessons, I actually thought that "forced rhyme" was a term used to describe all poems that rhymed.
With your outstanding teaching, I now have a basic understanding of what the term "forced rhyme" really means as well as the terms "inexact rhyme" and "slant rhyme". Thank you so much for taking the time to share your writing knowledge and insights with others to help us learn and grow as writers! I sincerely appreciate it!
The following link is to the poem titled, Heart Cry, which I wrote for the India weekly challenge; however, this version includes edited revisions based on the feedback provided in the challenge.

In the poem, I have an inexact rhyme which didn't seem natural for me to do, but with your coaching provided through these lessons, I was encouraged to get out of the box I was in and go with the inexact rhyme. I'm glad I did. Again, thanks Jan for a great lesson! Have a blessed evening!
