Have any tips on poetry?
I'm studying poetry. I need to write facts down.

"Facts"? . . . poetry goes far beyond mere facts, not that it dispenses with them. This conundrum is inherent in poetry's basic impetus to investigate language, the limits of language, what it can and cannot do and how to express emotions as well as abstractions as well as "the plain truth"through language. And if all that is even possible.
OK, here's a tip: find a book of poetry and read it from beginning to end.

Some poets like to have the end rhyme phonetically, others focus on the story.
Either way make sure it has flow and your ideas aren't going in all directions.
