I read and write my own poetry. My reasoning why I enjoy it is because it's an art-form where I can express myself.
A great example is from the movie 'Dead Poets Society'
We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.

I enjoy poetry, but I prefer to write it.
I like to read poetry because EMOTIONS. Like poems can be the most beautiful things in my opinion. I have started to cry because of poems before, just cause I could relate, they evoked a feeling of sadness, nostalgia, remorse, guilt.
