Freestyle Poetry

6 Jun

By Nesher Ehrman

A favorite hobby of mine is to write freestyle poetry. It sounds weird, which is good, because that’s what it is, but it can also sometimes come out surprisingly good. The idea is to just write sentences as fast as you think of them, with the only caveat being – it has to rhyme. That’s all. Once you’re done, you look back and read what you’ve written. It’s like a look at your subconscious, letting your forebrain take a rest while you run on automatic. It can be very interesting.

Writing out some lines while you’re staring at the screen,

If you don’t think what you write then it might come out obscene

The words just flow, they come right out, and go just as they may

And some ideas will dissappear, while others here to stay

A word which has no meaning is seldom understood

But who was the first who said a piece of tree was wood?

There must have been a person who moved on from grunts and squeals

Just as the first caveman turned “rolling” into wheels

Inventions may come naturally, or for them you have to strive

But that is what it means when we say we are alive

You see? Like I said, pretty weird, but at the same time, it can also be kind of interesting. If you’re feeling adventurous, try writing some of your own freestyle poetry in the comments.

    I like to write on golf, a game so dear to me,
    But often its been said before, in another’s commentary.
    So I try to be more thoughtful, and write unique content,
    I pour myself a coffee, but this doesn’t pay the rent.
    So I sit straight up and read my notes, there must be something new,
    But the mind stays blank, I sit alone, for hours and hours to stew!
