Malaysians students are introduced to poetry when they enter high-school. The poems throughout the syllabus are indeed really interesting and pretty simple, however, many struggle with poetry analysis.

Poems are basically stories, cut-down stories that requires a person to think and imagine it through to understand the poem and what the author was trying to convey to its readers. At first glimpse, one can find poems are all jumbled up texts that make no sense, but hold your horses, mate, for some, they can understand a poem on the first try, but for others, a couple more tries would do the trick. In poetry, it is important that you do not forget the bits you have read in a poem, always keep the whole piece in your mind when analysing it, so that you can link what the author is trying to convey.
