Safe space

I want to write
a poem
because words are my
refuge
and I think
others need shelter too

but I cannot find
the magic words that
will soothe the world’s
pain or provide
beauty and peace
for everyone

maybe, though, knowing someone
feels anger and sadness
and frustration, like you,
will bring you
some small
comfort

I cannot solve
all the problems
unfortunately
but if I can help
you, that will
suffice

perhaps I’ll try
again and write
another poem
tomorrow
