Prose

Write With No Rules 

Those that tell you

There are "rules" to writing 

Have no clue

What they are talking about

And

It is highly likely 

That if someone

Often a PhD professor or "teacher"

Says so

They have never picked 

Up a pen

Of their own

On their own

And placed it on the glorious 

White blank canvas

Before them

That sacred space 

Where rules

Simply

Do

Not

Exist 

Unless

That is

One is in the business 

Of making a list

Of what to do and not to do

With this one and only 

Life they were given 

To live 

And

Build

And

Play

And

Create

But of course

There are rules 

To writing 

And these one must learn to break 

So that they

Can make 

Great art

That will last 

For ages after

One puts pen to paper

~ Write With No Rules ~
