I read in order to connect.

I read poetry because I feel the need to read and soak up everything. I also like fiction and non-fiction books, have a passion for signs, and will read the back of a cereal packet or shampoo bottle if nothing else is available.

Also... what better way to improve as a writer than by surrounding oneself by better writers?

And to appreciate other people's art and different perspectives.

It inspires me to write my own poems. I like to write poems on various social topics that can reveal the complex problems of humanity. On the page https://edubirdie.com/examples/gender-equality/ I recently read quite interesting and useful information about gender equality and the struggle for it in the past.

I read poems so that I won't feel alone. It is one of my favourite hobbies to read poems. In past, I don't have time to write assignments until I found the https://write-my-essay.online website through which I have hired an essay writer to complete my essay assignments. Now, I am all free to read poems.

Sometimes poetry can be the only one who understands our deepest and darkest emotions.

I read poetry to hone the metaphorical associations that fuel our daily micro epiphanic moments.

And chief among all those moments is laughter.

I'm in it for the comedy.

An important question.

Forever searching for new techniques to communicate things that are difficult to convey in prose.

Because finding a few perfect lines - just the right words - in just the right moment, feeds the heart, soul and mind all at once. It creates a similar sort of bliss to being in love imo.

Poems help me think on a bigger scale. It's a way to understand myself and make sense of the world. They affect almost the same way as online games. But even in this case, you need a mentor or assistant. For me, it was this platform: https://skycoach.gg/
