Peaceful Words in Harsh Times

I can write about singing.
I can write about life.
The words fall together
and I am content.
But more important things
go on in life than this.

I go out on a hill with pen in hand.
To experience the wonders of this world.
I have to know. I have to see.
I have lived a tame life.
Violence hapoens in here
but not seen by me.

I can’t write about guns
and violence and hatred.
I don’t have the words
in my head to write them down.
Important things need to be discussed.
Words can touch the hearts of others.
But not by me.
I write about singing and writing and living.
Peaceful words in harsh times we live in.
Are my words of value?
