at times i wonder, whether poetry is spontaneous expression of feelings or we should follow the classical structural forms for writing more effectively. free verse is more in vogue these days.i have expressed tis in my poem Poems and POETRY.
I hope this will help get you out of your dilemma:
POESY'S PARENTS (A Tanka)
CONTENT can't conceive
Poetry all by itself,
Being a maiden.
She should therefore marry FORM
To beget POEM offspring.
