Poetry and the need

If we could all see the need.
The world may not need to bleed.
With all the war in the world
The neighboring world is the underworld.
Swirling with death and despair
The only thing i can compare.

The need for words not war
Is far more
Necessary than guns and blood
Why is the need to feel like a stud
Greater than the need for peace and ending hunger
When i was younger

I read o captain my captain
And i began to feel the need for action not caption
The action of poem writing can be just as strong
As a weapon of any kind there is no wrong
Way to write poetry as there is in diplomacy
But hopefully
With poetry we could put an end
To all the problems that we can never mend
With war.

This poem is about: 
Our world
