What would you say if someone asked you why poetry is important?
I just simply tell them that poetry makes me fell good inside after I read it.
Poetry is as important as speech, it is a form of communication. Poetry is more importantly an art form just as music and lyrical writing are. It is a form of art just as important as sculpture, and painting.
Poetry is about deep penetration into the psyche of someone be it human, animals, plants or other living beings. It is also a way of appreciating other things of the world with admiration and love. Poetry is to see people or things and pick up something normal or extraordinary present in them and present it in a way as to raise our feelings to emphthise with them or to find a way to instil sanity into them if they are afflicted with anything evil. Poetry is also important in other areas of our enterprises because a poetic heart is habitual of looking at something or someone with admiration and it will naturally seek happiness in those enterprises also and perform the assigned work with a vibrant creativity. Poetry is always uplifting and does not know any discrimination and sees all people or things with an equal eye so as to extract the essence of everything. All this I would want to say if encountered by someone with the question you put up.
I would direct them to my latest hub that I wrote for April Poetry Month:
Poetry is important to me because it allows me to express my inner thoughts, feelings and emotions.
Poetry is important because it can allow the human spirit to soar above the mundane and the everyday. In short it is freedom, a ride on the imagination into worlds waiting to be discovered and explored. As humans we communicate and understand mostly through language, we survive and thrive as biological creatures through the power of speech (and symbol, gesture and sign). Poetry is feeling metamorphosed into selected language and shaped on page and from mouth to convey the deepest, the most profound of feelings. It can take you into the darkest and lightest niches of life; you go with it, hoping to grasp the poet's meaning, or simply bathe in the texture and flow of syllable and sentence. In the end literal meaning or technical admiration isn't the final destination - the emotions have to be involved finally.
Every art form is important. Sets us apart from animals.
Poetry is about self expression and it is through self expression that people are able to de-stress, get out what they are trying to say as well as in another form show who they are. Poetry for some is apart of maintaining their mental well-being.

Have you or would you pose a question on Hubpages because someone asked you to?I was reading a hub the other day and thought that it was odd that someone made the comment for someone to pose a certain question so that they can write a hub about it. This not only sounds like poor etiquette, but also...

Someone from an online dating site wants to put one of my hubs on her website. She said she would credit me fully, but wants to publish the entire article on her site. I'd be fine with a link to my hub, but I'm a little hesitant about letting someone copy my work. Any advice? Words of wisdom?
