Does anyone read, listen or write poetry? There was a thread about this but it was years ago and didn't addess the same things.
Who's your favourite poet. As in a previous thread, mine is Shane Koyczan who was in the Canadian Winter Olympics opening ceremony.
His most famous poem is To This Day
But my favourite poems are the ones about his grandad. They remind me so much of my grandad (not biological, he adopted my dad.. but still my grandad) who people would have said was a very angry man and didn't seem to show any affection to anyone. But if you looked at his actions you would see how much he cared. I've only seen my dad cry 3 times outside of deaths. 1 was when I bought him a guitar and the next two were during these two poems. Not because they are sad but because they reminded him of his dad so much and how much he really cared.
His descriptions of a child's room in the dark is amazing as well.
