Jessica Eibeck’s “The Power of Art” is a poem about the emotional effect of art on us. In the poem, she mentions someone who is dealing with the ordeals of her life that all of us have been through. However, is was the way she dealer with it that caught my attention. She releases that emotional tension and stress through her heart. The poem quotes, “When she let her art take over, it seemed all her pain and regret flew away.”

I can really relate to what Jessica expresses in this poem. I also find that writing about my current situation helps put everything into perspective. The problem I face no longer seems as big and terrifying and on paper, looks like something I can actually deal with. On paper, my life is no longer “over.” What seeme like a mountain, actually turned out to be a mole hole. Writing, as states in the poem, lets my “anxieties rush away, like a sandcastle destroyed by a wave.”
