Can a Poem Stop the War?

Can a poem stop the bombing?
Can a poem help us see
How much we have in common?
Can a poem set us free?

Can a poem change our thinking?
Can a poem help us find
The peace that we are missing?
Can a poem change a mind?

Can a poem stop the bleeding?
Can a poem stop the war?
Can a poem ask the question
What are we fighting for?
