Mmmmm, Poetry!

Because I love poetry, I wanted to dedicate a post to put a spotlight on its amazingness. Poetry is not for everyone, but honestly I can’t see the world being the same without it. It’s kind of sad that there is a stigma on poets being poor and useless, yet so many people soak up their work like sponges. Poetry is such a broad genre, there is something for everyone! Anything from Shakespeare to rap music is considered a form of poetry. You just have to find it and be willing to read new things. Here are a few links for those ‘brave’ souls wanting to dip their toes in the ocean of poetry.
