Why Free Verse? A Sincere Question

February 25, 2012

What is the worth
of a free verse poem?
Is it not just
a snippet
of thought?
A snippet alone
Is it unworthy of extension
or is it more beautiful on its own?
Structured like lyrics of a song
and unbound by the rules of grammar
So is the value of
a free form poem
in that it is merely a free
Formed thought?
Or does it have value at all?

The author's comments:
I've always wondered why people free verse their poetry when essays seem to have more insight and structured or rhyming poetry seems to be more beautiful.
