Free Verse

Free verse gained popularity in the 19th century as a departure from traditional poetic forms. Rejecting strict meters and rhyme schemes, free verse offers poets boundless freedom to play with words and express their emotions unhampered by convention. This form celebrates individual expression and allows for experimentation, resulting in unique pieces that break away from established patterns. As such, this collection of free verse poems offers a wide array of voices, each with its own cadence and storytelling style, exploring diverse themes from personal musings to societal critiques.
