A Poem… Free Verse Generation

Free Verse Generation

Does a Poem need to Rhyme?

For my heart to be so tamed would be such a crime

Limiting my artistic expression

There must exist some form of exception

Free Verse allows me to Unleash my Soul

To extend my words out of the Realm of Control

To my ears a Rhyme sounds a bit silly

But make no mistake, it certainly isn’t easy

A generation raised on Dr. Suess and Where the Sidewalk Ends

To untie rhyming with childhood humor is not so easy to get out of our heads

Perhaps I should try and Rhyme from time to time

To pay homage to the original poetic Paradigm

A rhyme feels like it should go on Forever

But alas I have found the right words to conclude our endeavor
