Why is poetry important to you?

I think poetry is important because it enriches our inner beings. And for me personally I cannot imagine living without reading poetry, or living without writing poetry, and so for me poetry is as important as oxygen and water. I cannot find any concrete utilitarian value for poetry, I cannot say and I think no-one can say that it will cure cancer or pay your bills, but it provides something that cannot be measured.
