Break free

by Chris Sorrenti

Of the confinements of verse for a change
Break free
It’s been on your bucket list for years
So do it
Break free

Every piece of writing has some sort of value
It can’t all be Picasso or van Gogh
It’s good to get off red rose speedway for a while
Nostalgia anecdote and essay
Already part of your DNA

So break free
Continue to write the history
That has to be told
Of your own life
And how it affects the world

Break free

...unless writing verse is itself a breaking free into a world of words, into the parts of the mind that are near-shackles or rutted dried-up mud roads... On the other hand, your invitation is itself freeing and a blessed invitation. Writing should be liberating and if it is not, I don't think it is satisfying or fulfilling. The use of script in your poem is visual confirmation of its truth. Thanks Chris.
