Poetic Survival

Afternoon all!

I came across this quote earlier today and really wanted to share it with you…

“Whenever I read a poem that moves me, I know I’m not alone in the world. I feel a connection to the person who wrote it, knowing that he or she has gone through something similar to what I’ve experienced, or felt something like what I have felt. And their poem gives me hope and courage, because I know that they survived, that their life force was strong enough to turn experience into words and shape it into meaning and then bring it toward me to share.”

Beautifully put and very well said, wouldn’t you agree?
