Why Poetry Should Be a Vital Part of Our Lives? 5 Ways Poetry Can Benefit One with Its Magnificent Healing Powers

Poetry is the only most expressive yet creative way when it comes to comprehending and appreciating the beauty of life and everything that comes with it. Poetry’s strength lies in its immaculate ability to shed a sideways light on the world, so the truth sneaks up on you and unravels all the hidden beauty. It not only teaches us how to live but also bestows us with the art of embracing and expressing the intricacies of emotions that often remain concealed otherwise. Poetry is a mystical form of expression; the more we explore the well of our imagination, the faster it fills again. 

Having known the countless advantages that poetry offers to us and being a flag-waving advocate of its creativity, the book “Universe of Poems,” written by Scott Rusinko, is a rhythmic creation of sovereign beauty that features all the benefits and colors of life in the most soothing way. This beautiful collection of poems about various emotions ranging from happiness, guilt, regret, sorrow, and love is a guaranteed gateway to feeling and confessing the suppressed sentiments, being the safest place to expose the most vulnerable emotions in such a melodious way. The book consolidates all such beautiful facets of life in such a harmonious way that speaks volumes about the countless benefits and power a poem has on our health. Below are the 5 ways poetry can do wonders and benefit people in the most astonishing ways. 

1. Works As a Therapy – The Most Soothing One

Poetry, if we let it and embrace it, can offer us a way to empathize with one another. In its immediacy, poetry is a counselor helping us to understand one another. Leading us away from hate to love, from violence to mercy and pity, from helplessness to hope, from bleakness to utter brightness in life. 

2. Brings People Together on The Same Page

Poetry acts as a bridge. An immediate path to improve oneself and make a difference in the world. Creating a society where people work together to build each other up instead of tearing each other apart. Realizing that we’re not so different from one another. Poetry acts as a comforting and warm hug, consoling us that we aren’t the only ones going through things like this. 

3. Heals Emotional Pain 

Grief is one of the most painful emotions we experience, but at the same time, such dark and deep pain also becomes the source of some of the world’s most inspirational poetry. When we experience a profound loss, poetry blesses us with a platform to say the unsaid, turns heavy silences into a meaningful voice, puts our feelings into words, and unravels the hidden in a highly cathartic way.

4. Creates Self-Awareness 

Most of us don’t have the time or desire to just sit and aimlessly ponder the meaning of our lives or what makes us deeply happy. Writing poetry gives us a constructive way to do that. Not only does it help people explore and gain insight, but it also enables them to show “inner reflection” when they’re done experiencing their emotions and get spiritually awakened.

5. Broadens World View 

Those who are passionate about poetry have a chance to widen their world views. They can draw inspiration from what is happening today and turn them into important poems. This will make the writer understand a particular issue better by seeing it from different perspectives. A person who has expansive world views can grow to become more empathetic and tolerant.

Hence, in a nutshell, poetry has the power to heal the incurable and quenches the thirst of our soul with its mystical rhythm, impactful words, and truly magnificent harmony.
