    Personally, I think that freeform is the best style for self-expression because there is no formula and it is open for anybody. That doesn't mean that no discipline is required. I like all forms but I think beginners can gain confidence by starting with freeform writing until they find their feet. Just a thought.

      I agree a 100% with it

      You know, it's funny - but even though I agree with you, my experience was different. When I was growing up I had trouble writing freeform verse even though I wanted to very, very much. I found mysel ... more

    Order! Order!

    What the hell is going on on this forum? ? It's supposed to be a discussion about free form poetry. I feel like I've just walked into a class room where the teacher hasn't shown up.

    Ali, stop telling us to read the Photo poem. Enough is enough.

    Jerry, every time I read one of your comments you crack me up. You have the best sense of humour.

    The rest of you should read some more poetry.

    Kind regards

      Dear Morgan, You are so right! May God bless you for having the courage to witness in poetry. Keep writing Christian poetry, but also try to read as much of it as possible. That will help strength ... more

    He is mine
    gives me everything like:
    a helping hand
    a shoulder to pout on
    a person who you can talk to
    a person who never leaves you behind
    a person who you can look up to
    That is why we should praise him
    for dieing on the cross for us
    for giveing his life away for us to live
    all we need to do is thank him

    i love this poem because it relates to all the girls


    he is so cute
    i wish he wouldnt look at me
    his hair is so fine
    it glares in my eye
    his teeth are as pretty as me
    i wish he would take a 2nd look
    i try not to stare
    but i cant i wish he felt the way about me
    hopefully we will come together
    i wish this wish for once will come true

    i hope you'll like it

    here is some freeform
    i live in a box
    and call it a life
    wander around wondering who i will see or what is going to happens but it all seems the same to me
    i wake up day after day with love in my heart
    and are my intentions
    and go to bed completely dissapointed
    i look forward to poptarts and poker
    and a deck with no jokers

    its funny that you can 'rate' the poems on here
    actually makes me kinda giggle because i dont know about the rest of you but i dont really care the rating my poems get
    they are my thoughs. can you put a grade on a thought?
    just seems like grading a blank sheet because half the time when people read it they dont really grasp it
    at least not to the length that the writer would.
    i consider my best work a poem called tour through insanity
    give it a 1 :)

    Silent birds conquer skies,
    The army of clouds passive,
    Rays of sun enlighten the show,
    A yellow rose pierces through earth,
    Delivered to armies of grass,
    Still free-
    Wind and water make both bow,
    But they manage to rise again
    And trying to reach the light,
    But desperate-
    The flower grows becoming beauty,
    Proudly grows above the grass,
    Green, seeing everywhere around,
    One million yellow roses just like her
