The Power Of Poetry By Elise Brooke

Updated: Mar 17

Poetry is so important because it helps us understand and appreciate the world around us. Poetry’s strength lies in its ability to shed a sideways light on the world, so the truth sneaks up on you. Poetry teaches us how to live.

Poetry triggers our emotions, strengthening our brains, and gives us space for self–reflection. Our brains process poetry similar to music.

Poetry can affect all generations and make people consider anything from love to loss. It can inspire… a poet speaks to the reader intimately and exclusively, giving an insight into their inner minds, their loves, and hates.

Poetry is the highest form of literature. It influences us because it shows different shades of human beings. It is one of the most ancient arts and also the product of human imagination.

It is for these reasons “The NZDream” blog has put together a “Poetry Corner.” The NZDream blog is all about finding healing and the healing journey through writing. We want to give poets of all ages and kinds a space to publish their works free of charge and be read by many, and a place to connect and read other poet's works.


So if you are a poet and enjoy poetry, please join us in “The Poetry Corner.” Https://www.mynzdreamblog.com




My Last Love


You are my last love

After you, I will never love again

As there is no after you

You and I are all there ever will be

In my heart, I knew you existed

I searched for your physical presence

But you were already with me

In my future you are all I see

As long as my heart beats you are always here

When our hearts stop

We will still be together

You are part of my soul

The part that makes me whole

The soul never dies

You have always been there and so have I
