An Unlikely Weapon

I am a writer not a fighter
Cliché this may sound
But words can be a lighter
To the smoldering concerns around
A well-placed letter, word, or phrase
Brings light to an issue out of the haze
Ink and pen is a weapon which know no match
So many different meanings to words can be attached
A sword can cut and guns can kill
But all will settle and peace, return it will
Words however remain through the years
Four score, I have a dream, and only fear is left to fear
