There aren't any real "rules" to writing poetry (lyrics), or music. They are more like guidelines. It all just depends on what you are feeling, the tone, and the message being conveyed. The reason that I prefere guidelines is because rules can/are meant to be broken. Writing is just expressing yourself, theres no wrong or right way to do that, just "guidelines" that can help you out. Some times rhyming, in a way, stiffels what can be written or expressed, which is why some people don't like it; but it all depends on your personal style or taste. I personally don't stick to any one writing style. I write without rhymes, free verse (no set rhyme or rhythem pattern), aabb, abab, abcb, ect. The hardest rhyme pattern I have done is aabb while rhyming internally. So its more like aAaAbBbB where a and b are in the middle of the line, and A and B are at the end of the line.
