a fan favorite

(like i really have fans... no, it's just the poem i've most recently shared around my little circle and the poem most warmly received... enjoy?)

What to write on blank pages
When war rages,
When time changes,
And chaos corrupts youth
Creating curses that last?

Can numbers un-numb us,
Or pictures persuade us,
Or will we watch the world
Fade in flames?

What words could inspire,
Light to live higher,
Furnish with fire?

Will anything amplify,
Damn the darkness,
Fill the future with hope?

What can move us anymore?
