Do you know what your natural style is when you write? C/C?

Upon a page a poet wandered by;
so odd he thought the words displayed this way,
as if the writer thought he must impress
by metered rhyme sung with iambic tones.

Seems not his natural comfort these words
aligned in awkward form so harsh the sound
for beats though kept without a plan will die
in harshest light of critics eyes reviewed.

We drum our words to lift the veil of thoughts
and paste these words upon a page to read.
In doing so we hope to move some minds
to think way past the obvious displayed.

Though when a form ill suits the poet’s style
the readers heads will shake… in disbelief.
Update: I am a firm believer that everyone should practice writing to form as I feel in the end it makes one a better poet if nothing more for the discipline. However, one does need to find ones own voice and style.
