I am fortunate
to be unfortunately saddled
with the daunting but dire duty
of the pen.
I know it has been said,
that the pen can slay sword
and terrible ways.
Yet I wonder why we cannot use both.
Be doer and Writer. Spill blood and Ink.
Warring on Two Fronts.
I’ll name it, “The War of Two Fronts”.
You would have to fight on at least one to stop me.
Blade and Tip. Tongue and Cheek.
Words and Action.
In truth, both are weak
unless there is Soul that Thinks
or Hand that Wields.
So mighty or not, Pen and Sword
is no stronger than Stick
unless its motive is meek and bold, sleek and brash,
and of wisdom that all will understand
