Writing a poem isn't
going to change the world
no matter how happy
that would make me
if it were true
one cannot alter the
course of human history
with a handful of words
no, writing a poem
or a song
or a book
isn't going to change
even though I wish it could
words aren't nearly
as powerful as we like
to think they are
a couple of lines
won't have the effect
we mean them to
we can't stun a
room into silence
no matter how cool
that would be
if simple marks
on a page could do that
no, writing a poem isn't
going to change the world
