I found writing poetry challenging due to the major style shift, with being used to writing more longer form pieces. Having to fit an idea or theme into the smaller structure of a poem was a struggle, but it taught he how to adapt to the style and appreciate the poetry format. Reading the various poems helped me understand their appeal, such as even if they are short in length, they can e very thought provoking due to the vagueness or anbiquity of what is being said.
