You have chosen to compose a poem outside one of the ready templates provided by the distinct poetic genres. This provides you with a greater deal of freedom; at the same time, you accept the fact that your work may not take place in the same public venues that are available to poems belonging to one of the esteemed poetic genres. You must now choose whether you will attempt to compose in the more formally challenging three-part line or the less challenging two-part line. This may be a question of your poetic capability:
What do folks think of you as a poet, and how do you estimate your own skills?
I’m a respected poet and people listen to what I say.
People’s expectations vary; I’m doing this for myself.
