Free Verse Poetry

I’ve always found it difficult to

write in straight lines
cut a straight edge, and
speak straightforwardly
Why I’m so crooked and wavy
and bent all over the place
even my hair refuses
to grow straight

I reckon it’s because
life is rarely lived
along one long and unwavering line
or walked in only one direction

and I prefer it that way

so please stop trying to straighten me out
