Poetry is the use of spoken or written words.  It can be used for healing, recovery and personal growth in the form of poetry therapy by using your own life experiences or those of others and with some imagination.

“Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion; it is not the expression of personality, but an escape from personality.  But, of course, only those who have personality and emotions know what it means to want to escape from these things”.

~T.S Eliot

Most people know what a poem is.  Yet, it in incredible difficult to define and there are many varied definition as to what poetry is.
