Fortunately I had a wonderful professor who helped me "translate" those non-ryhming, confusing lines of so called "poetry". It turned out to be a great class.
Poetry has been written all throughout the years
Sad sagas full of drama, laden with strife and tears.
The proper way to write, the proper words to say,
I never could quite figure out, why they wrote that way.
Using words so grand, no one understood,
Portraying wars so humble, between the evil and the good.
But I never really cared for the complex or abstract,
Halfway through the poem, in confusion and despair,
I got the strangest urge, to pull out all my hair.
Why not keep things simple? Why not make them rhyme?
Must things be so difficult in poetry all the time?
Yes, simplicity is so beautiful to me.
Simple lines that tell the truth is what poetry should be!
