I would like to define first what I personally call 'Fluid Poetic Asseveration' in the discouse of modern day poetry. Fluid Poetic Asseveration is the descriptive diction that explain the changing and relative nature of modern day poetry. Poetry is not inherently primordial in its lexical synthesis. Personally I define a poem as a set of words that reflects an expression of the internal understanding of the external in a manner that the poet understands and chooses. The concept of 'orthodox poetry' should not be applicable in modern day vehemently beacause poetry can nolonger be witnessed as an art of the elderly trying to distort and hide meaning. Poetry is a tradition which cannot be traced to a particular specificity. The relative manifestation of poetry wipes away the notions of phrases like 'A poem must be like this'.
A poem consist of what the poet desires. The imperfection of a poem rests within a thought of a man trying to express what he feels in a man prescribed by another man. This brings me to the concept of 'fluidity' where poems should not be judged because there exist nothing like 'True Poems'. Whats can make a poem wrong is the judgement of the poet himself or herself. Poems should be open to comments of gramma and spellings not thought, its blatant for one to judge another's thoughts because the former cannot read the mind of the latter. I therefore bring the argument that poets should not be belittled by overzealous scholars whose ego and megalomania pushes them to view others as immature in poetry. As far as I know, A six year old baby can be a poet, poems are not about rhymes and those funny prescribed formats. I do appreciate the use of such as very helpful in not making one's diction a poem but making a poem interesting. Africa has its own historical notions that reflect poetry, so does America, Europe and all other parts of the globe. I greatly dishonour poets who think what they write is synonymous to 'true poems'.
I therefore bring an argument of the distinction between primordial poetry and socially constructed poems. Primordial poetry posits the inert nature of poetry as an expression of cognitive conciousness. I buy the notion that poetry is socially constructed. The environment around us has a direct and indirect impact on the nature of the poems we write or say. This disqualifies the ideology of classifying poems with words like complex; fine; simple. Poems only change their nature of expression and no one should judge. However comments and ratings do not measure the perfection of your poem, but rather the reception.
In summary, writing a good poem is not about meeting the standards of another man, regardless of the fact that he sold millions of copies, unless you are trying to make your poetry an enterprenual model rather than a lexicial model. The perfect of your poetry should be measured by your personal development of your personal goals in poetry. However it is of high importance to read the works of others and borrow styles you desire.

To love is a choice,
To leave is a choice,
Its your voice,
Make a wise choice
