Poetry used to feel unattainable to me. There was something about it that I thought I would never truly understand. Well, I still don’t understand most poetry out there. But what I’ve learned is that poetry can be the most effective tool for expressing a feeling or describing a moment—even more so than a full book. I never promised my poetry would be good, but I promise it is meaningful (even if only to me). Hopefully you will find some meaning in it, or at the very least be encouraged to write your own.
