Discovering poetry when he was a boy saved Lemn Sissay's life. Writing about his feelings and what happened to him in foster care, using his poems in big, bold ways, led him to a distinguished career and a life of helping people to find that same love of words. He talks to Dan Bendrups about why poetry should be everywhere.
