Why poetry can hold the peace message?

Why poetry? To quote Voltaire, ”Poetry is the music of the soul.” We grow up with poems. They’re in our nursery rhymes, our music, our holy books, our history, our prayers, our hearts. Whether we write, recite, perform, or sing a poem, when we share poems with another, we connect to that deeper place inside. We touch the place that knows compassion and forgiveness, the place that values love and respect — building blocks of humanity and peace.
