Pen is mightier than the sword

Pen is mightier than the sword
Writing what I think, before I say it!

A journal or diary
a black mead notebook
remember those?
Crying, as you scribe your mind on collegiate line
Jotting your hurt on paper
and your paper collecting tear stains
the hidden secrets before poetry was known
what about the receipts all over the place
you can't throw those scraps of written feelings away
see when paper wasn't available
... that tissue, gum wrapper, hand or on forearm
was your only mind writing storage place

curled up in small places
writings are from dark places
some scribes will shine in front of the bright lights
most may fall as the last call, through last writes(rights)
hands will always shake nervously to
heart will race in irregular beats through
every hard write cuts like samurai knife
yes the end is in releases
in pieces, it will save a life

close your eyes with me
lets go back when learning eyes and ears
only knew of a few voices to idol
where poetry was movement and expression
not words battling towards a title
So where in history will your title hold a historical title- books
where are these idols in title
when new notebooks and muttering voices
are looking for a guided model
they are seeing you
they are hearing you
and through their mouth
you be hearing you
Somehow we  lost our selves in lack of creativity
now each performer is a see through preview
of you
just now performing your style in front of you
bring it back to life
lift every voice back into your own style
be like you and no one else
writing does save
speaking volumes in your own voice helps

calling all Originality!!!!!!

  1. Very Enlightening!!! T.W. and inspirational as well bruh. Getting back to the essence of what we do is important in all phases of our inner being. This life can have you up & down and at the same time you lose sight of your vision. We all go through different transformations at certain periods. But essentially if you stay true to who you are & have a concrete foundation, you usually can find your way back.

    Great piece brotha, I enjoyed reading it..Keep Inspiring!!!

    1love!, Peace & Blessings!!!
