I will be judging based on the clarity and content of the poem.
If there is a form, I will see how it manages to express the emotion within the form and rhyme.
Punctuation and grammar will also be taken into account.
However, if you have expressed the given emotion in a exceptionally novel way, it may be chosen as the best.
