Hurts A Free Verse Poem

Updated on April 6, 2017

Growing Up Hurts

Growing up hurts,

deep down in guts;

or so it seem.

Growing older hurts

when everything familiar

becomes uncomfortable, again.

Learning life's lessons hurts,

straight to your soul;

some may not get past

the simple breathless pain

of a broken heart.

And when some small unspoken

dream dies, as a realization

your love is not going

to be as easy or as soft

as you thought it should be.

Everything in conscious living gives either

pleasure or pain.

My love hurts, but it is a pain that is

worth living through, rather than

try to live without.

Why Free Verse

Free Verse is the most liberated of all poetry form in that it does not use consistent meter patterns, rhyme, or any other musical pattern, although as some poets will explain Free Verse is not totally free; it is only free from the strict demands of the metered line. Free verse still displays elements of Form. Although, it tends to follow the rhythm of natural speech, and thought patterns.
