I Write Poetry

While world players position
their pawns for battle,
I write poetry.

While a desperate mother steals
her children to safer borders,
I write poetry.

While young women are bartered
their dignity for dollars,
I write poetry.

While I pray for peace and purpose,
mine out the voice I've been given,
I write poetry.

To shine light into dark places,
distill hope in the hurt,
I write poetry.
