I'm really bad at rhyming. I try it, and then I have to change the words to things I can rhyme, and then it doesn't sound right and it usually just falls apart. Any tips?

when i rhyme (which isn't very often whoops q_q) i kindof let the rhymes guide the direction of the poem, like i don't usually have a certain outline/thing that i want the poem to be about. it helps to keep an open mind, and sometimes the rhyming helps me think of wayy cooler ideas for the poem than i would have had on my own :3 just remember they don't have to be strict rhymes, like dog and fog - it's okay if they're a bit looser, especially if it helps the direction of the poem.
((but my pet peeve is when people rhyme again with like crane and it's like oh my gosh wHO THE HECK SAYS AGAIN LIKE THAT adjsfk;l))

you also have to make sure that your rhythm is correct, or otherwise the poem will sound off. reading it out loud, or even just in your mind helps. i also find it helpful when you don't stick to a rigid rhyme scheme (ex: a b b a c, etc.). i find that when i try to do that, it ends up sounding awkward. subtle rhymes woven into a free-verse are very effective, or maybe if you find a really good rhyme for the poem you can stick it in. there's really no rules.

i hope that that made sense and that i helped, but keep in mind i almost never rhyme so these guidelines may or may not be very effective ^u^
