Inspirational Poems Inspiring Poetry Writing A Poem

For some reason, when kids study poetry in school, it is often presented as a lost art – a form of writing that isn’t practiced or appreciated in our modern society. That simply isn’t true. While one may not find poerty in the pages of national news magazines or newspapers as may have been the case a hundred years ago, it is still with us in three obvious ways.

In addition to the poetry that people write and share on their own websites, there are countless song lyrics written in rhyme (and sometimes with metaphors and other traditional poetic devices), recorded, and distributed every year.

Another form of poertry that is still with us and is indeed popular these days as it ever was is inspirational poetry. Besides verses one might find on greeting cards, there are still entire books of new inspirational poems being published. In fact, I was just looking at a website for a new book with modern inspirational poetry. The author wrote the book of inspirational poems to cause the readers to reflect on life and to renew the spirits of readers who are having a hard time dealing with things in their personal lives or just dealing with the many negative things that happen the world around all of us everyday. I think it’s a good idea for all of us to take a step by and put things in their proper perspective. It’s so easy to get wrapped up in the day-to-day stresses of life and forget its overall purpose.

Parents need to lead by example in this area. A good way to start would be to find meaningful writing and share it with their kids. It would be nice to start a family tradition in which the parents and the kids take turns discovering something that the other one finds important and poignant.
