Are you asking for comment ?. If so, then you can use comment tag in your system.xml file.

<field id="display_text" translate="label" type="text" sortOrder="1" showInDefault="1" showInWebsite="0" showInStore="0">
    <label>Display Text</label>
    <comment>This text will display on the frontend.</comment>

<field id="FieldID" translate="label" type="text" sortOrder="70" showInDefault="1" showInWebsite="1" showInStore="1">
<label>Field label</label>
<comment>You can add your text block as a comment</comment>
