Poets often describe writing poetry as a searching, usually a searching for a better understanding of oneself. This all starts with one's own experiences and thinking about them. This takes some doing and time to arrive at a better understanding, but they also say that this exploration never ends. Stanley Kunitz, a well know poet, says, 'Poetry is the most difficult, the most solitary, and the most life-enhancing thing that one can do in the world.' I hope you keep on searching.
