I love how he points out that writing poetry can automatically "reengage" you into your own life. He's right that it doesn't happen in the classroom a lot. I think that this self reflection on where you come from is unbelievably important. My family comes from the South, but I live in the Midwest. Where I come from (in terms of heritage or in terms of where I've lived) makes me different in both the Midwest and the South, respectively. This differentiation is what makes my story different from the very beginning.
