4 Poems Everybody Can (and Should) Read
I know National Poetry Month just ended, but I'm a big believer that we all should read poetry often. Many people feel like poetry is unapproachable or not easily understood, but I'd argue just the opposite is true-- poetry is an honest expression of thoughts and feelings, and I think all of us can find ourselves in poetry if we create space to sit with the words and let them speak to us.
That might sound a little funky to you if you've never tried it, but I'd encourage you to find a quiet space, to settle down, and to read these words out loud to yourself. It might feel uncomfortable, but you'll experience so much more of the fullness and beauty of the words when you hear them out loud.
