The pen is my instrument

And life my mentor

An extraordinary journey

Questioning whatโ€™s in store

A burgeoning dream

To heal our pain

Writing about fears

Sheltering from the rain

Exorcising demons

With our blood for ink

Pulling me back

From teetering on the brink

We may heal ourselves

From the wounds of misery

The pen is mightier than the sword

and it inflicts no injury

    You write to me
    I write to you
    Your thoughts say it all
    Words do fall
    Out of a crack in the wall
    Stand on the rubble tall
    Let the dust settle
    Light up the kettle
    Have a cuppa and a chat
    Light flows back, through the crack
    Writing is our world
    Words are our pearls
