For Older Students - Sometimes Writers Feel Lost

Crying Peace Sign
by Amy LV

Students - Sometimes writers feel lost, as if suddenly a cozy place has become frightening.  Life can be confusing, both the small worlds we live in and the big world we all share.  

At such where-do-I-turn-what-do-I-do-now times, writing can be a friend in the darkness, a small candle warming your small corner of this planet we share.  We can ask questions with our words, and we can try to offer hope.  We can remind ourselves that yes, love is all that matters, and from this loving place may we live.

The "we" in this poem refers to all of us.  What can we do as a world to help keep each other safe?

The world holds much beauty.
Sing to someone.
Read a story to someone.
Make a kindness promise you can keep.

My love to you.

  1. Amy,
    Your words speak such truth. What do we tell the babies sleeping beneath our weeping moon?


  2. Great poem, with a question we're all struggling to find the answer for.
