Why Is Poetry Important To Help You Cope With Life – Motivate Amaze Be GREAT

When you release your emotions onto a blank page and then admire from afar, you get a sense of perspective. You are able to reflect back on circumstances and situations that led to what inspired you.

I know that for me, I started writing poetry that reflected the dismal and dreary mood I stayed stuck in this negative whirlwind. I wrote such painful emotions in several journals. Here’s an example of some of the earlier poems I wrote:

Dark Days

Gloom becomes my companion
Days filled with feeling darkness
Depression is my veil
Creeping up inside are my moments
Where shadows overcome and prevail
Days occurring more often
More obscure
They have become the tests that have left me with visible scars
My wounds run deep
It is too painful to handle
I welcome sleep
