Description: this is just my thoughts about what i do, im hoping im not the only one that feels this way
MY PEN, MY SOUL -------------------------------------------
The pen will never stop
The pen just bleeds
The ink keeps flowing
Until I succed
For wicked people
My pen shines
Like a wooden cross
On a church steeple
Have people confused
Talking of bad times
And writers abused
Take time to know
Take time to care
Feel what I write
Don't make opinions
And just glare
It's my mind
I give to you
My pen, my soul
I entrust to you
This is really good! A very honest, noble poem! I think all writers can certainly relate to this one as it speaks volumes of truth! We write a lot of things about inner thoughts and feelings, some good, some bad, some reality and some fantasy. But it is an extension of our minds and our soul. It is intimate and has a purpose and should be treated that way. I really like this poem! You have done a brilliant job writing it! Take care!
This is an interesting perspective. The notion of not making opinions was a little vague. After all, writing is a persuasive form, which generally causes the reader to react and often form an opinion. Otherwise, there was a lot of common sense in your words.
that is something that both poets and MCs have in common whether they know it or not. we all use the pen as a "weapon" and we let it bleed on the page. ur not just writing, ur taking a part of yourself and putting it in the pen. then that part of u is forever preserved in the works u write. nice job cade.
I'm touched to say the least. You put it very well. We, as writer's, make ourselves so vulnerable to everyone else that reads our work. We openly explore our fears, demons, happiness, love and heartbreaks, not to mention everything in between! You worded it very well in your way.
My Pen, my soul I entrust to you
That was the best! Poetry is the world in which I myself live, it's probably why I'm still alive. It's the cheapest form of therapy I can think of and really allows you inside of a person- see how they tick. This was another great write on your part and extremely honest, as always! Great job! Candi
"My pen, my soul I entrust to you" this line was awesome. It showed your openness and vulnerability as a writer and as an individual. Dreamweaver is right as poets we put our emotions to paper for others to see, a glimpse into our mind, our psyche, our thoughts and emotions we bare open to critism. We truly are trusting ourselves to others. Kuddos on the write it was great.
the pen is the most powerful weapon on this mutha [censored] planet, and there is no doubt in my mind, that through a well placed metaphor or an oratory over polictics and poverty, we can fulfill any need, cure any illness, make peace with any land or people. ~Mr. A.K.N.
