Freedom to Verse

71a83a70-33b2-4e9c-89be-b9a98cf8220e

I am free,
My verse is free!
I verse –
whatever
whenever
however.

I versify –
my joys,
hurts,
thoughts,
and my angst.
I versify my dreams.
I versify my soul.

I turn to verse when,
and if I want.
And I verse away from meter…
away from rhyme.
For to verse is a freedom!
It can neither be chained…
nor boxed.
It can’t be buried in the grave of standards.

 

About HARDPEN

Teacher-Writer Hardpen is my nom de plume. My real name is Massuline Antonio Dupaya Ligaya. Many times I was asked the question, "Why do you write?" I don't write for rewards nor adulation. When I write poems, stories or essays, seeing them completed gives me immense joy and satisfaction. The happiness and sense of fulfillment I feel when completing my works are my rewards. When I teach, I don't work but I play. The classroom is my playground, the students are my playmates, and the subject is our toy. Proud to be me! Proud to be a FILIPINO! TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
