Benefits of Poetry

Poetry is purposeful for several reasons. 1) It calms the spirit because when you put your thoughts in front of you, you find out how you are really feeling. And if there is a problem, and you didn't find out until you wrote your poem, you can target what is bothering you and fix it. 2) It's a good way to meet new people. Joining a poetry club or a poetry slam can give you more fun and you still get to write poetry, and having that strong suit in common makes your friendship stronger. 3) It's a fantastic way to learn the ways of writing. If you really decide that you want to learn the writing life-style, poetry is the way to go! Poetry is good for your spirit, and it's an excellent way to learn how to write in general. Poetry is so great, I don't see why everyone doesn't practice it!
