Good for about everything in life, actually. I guess since I have a degree in communication, I put a bit more emphasis on it in life. Makes sense that someone like me would value communication more than, say, an engineer or mathematician.
Even I, however, have a hard time getting my message across sometimes, especially when I feel uncertain how that will be received on the other end. Sometimes, I come out and make a blatant comment that says what I’m thinking. It’s a good thing I’m usually in the car blatantly telling off some idiot driver. Other times, I’m a bit more nervous about saying something. Like when I’m trying to get a message through to a colleague who’s just not getting it. How do you diplomatically tell someone he/she is a moron? And then, of course, there’s the big one: trying to talk to men. Ugh. That’s an animal in itself. There comes a point, however, when it’s time to either say what you feel and accept the consequences, or walk away without saying anything. That’s a crime in my opinion.
So I fall back on verse. When I’m in a particularly talkative mood, or when there’s a complex message I want to send, I find it’s easier to get that across in a poem.

There’s a song out there for just about any mood, and most everyone can identify with music.
Such as a good song to hit the road with. Maybe idiot drivers won’t upset me so much with this one:
