I honestly think people are like poetry. You can read them and take them at face value or you could slowly uncover and unravel their personal stories by close reading. It may seem like i’m just a big busybody – but with everything we read, I think it is important to place them in context of the writer or poet’s life. To draw parallels from the persona’s voice and find out more about them. Likewise, we should make the effort to get to know the people around us, friends and family. To understand them better. We all deserve to be understood.
