No single poem

No single poem,
says all that needs to be said,
expresses all people feel and know,
encapsulates everyone’s experiences,
yet still we write,
we scribble and type,
smashing letters together and
trusting our inadequate words
will,
in ways we do not understand
nor ever could predict
will
touch,
move,
inspire,
and somehow lead to other words,
shaped in other poems
that describe other realities.
