I find poetry can help us release our supressed feelings in an artistic way. Sometimes our innermost thoughts and feelings can come to light through a poem. This can help us decompress, relax and reflect on ones own conscience. 
Writing poems will give sound to our inner voice. 
We can learn a lot from ‘The Psalms’ in the Bible. A collection of stories, hymns, poems and praises full of emotion, worship and praise to our Almighty God.
Here you can find a collection of my very own poetry and also a collection of poems by people just like you who send them in for publishing.
