Poetry allows people to express themselves through written and spoken word when they otherwise may not be able to. A person who would normally have difficulty telling someone how they feel about a situation they're dealing with or a problem they have may feel more comfortable putting those feelings into poetic form. It also allows us to be transported into the thoughts and experiences of others by reading their poetry. Poetry can be insightful, meaningful, humorous and inspirational.
