The Power of Poetry

Why write poetry? Simple answer. It’s powerful.

Why is poetry powerful? Because it allows us to express ourselves in a unique way. Poetry often allows us to delve into our subconscious and write about deeply personal things without being direct.

That’s a gift. That means we can write about those things that we might find too personal, dark, or embarrassing without worrying what others will think. It’s art. It’s poetry. It may or may not represent reality but it nearly always represents truth.

Next time you find yourself struggling with some kind of emotional turmoil, I encourage you to write about it in the form of a poem and discover the power of poetry. – dse
