Poetry gives ordinary language the power to move people. Actor Paul Engle aptly said, “Poetry is boneless with ideas, edgy and emotionally charged, all held together by the delicate, hard skin of the words.” Poetry allows a poet to share their stories in the most beautiful and exuberant way and embrace you with the emotions felt by the poet. The world is a better place with poetry in it. Come to think of it, poetry and acting are similar in more ways than you might imagine. The key point of both activities? Speak out. Both arts are a gateway to emotional catharsis.
