May You Never Lay Down Your Mighty Pen, a poem

mighty

 

We learned to write
Across our shattered souls
The pen – bold
Its healing balms kissed our lips
And our heart’s songs were sung
We were made whole
We had sewn our own wounds
And our souls slept in silence
There is nothing like the sound of your own voice
There is nothing like the sound of your own tears
And when you hear them, you heal.
Put down the pen?  Nay!
But raise it high to the heavens
And spill the contents of your beating heart
For nothing fans the flames of introspection
Like the lilted tongue of the poet
Or the flouncing rhyme of verse
May it heal you
May it make you whole
May you never lay down your mighty pen.

Dear poet, dear writer, dear artist… may your pen never sleep.

  5. I feel left out. I only write on the computer. But “Never let your fingers out of home row” doesn’t have the same ring to it. and “Never give up on your quest for carpel tunnel syndrome” doesn’t seem to work either.

      Oh wow – you made me laugh 🙂 I would be left out too because I write all of my poetry these days on the computer. It was more of trying to inspire other writers to write, no matter the implement. The pen just has such a poetic trill to it 🙂 You are definitely not left out. Release your words to the wind, no matter the implement…

      Don’t ever let that get you down 🙂 I also write solely on the computer – where would I be without it? I still remember those days of crumpled pages because they weren’t quite perfect. On the computer is a lot less messy. I have to agree, those probably wouldn’t good replacements. You had me laughing!
