The Pen, The Sword (standard:poetry, 67 words)
Author: Reid LaurenceAdded: Apr 27 2010Views/Reads: 1580/0Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
Ever wonder about the strength of the pen versus the sword? I have many times...

If the pen is mightier 

Then why is blood the ink of choice? 

And why the fallen 

Have no voice? 

There are no words 

Or lack of them 

To fill the ranks 

Of empty men 

You must take stock of them 

And then 

Recall the day 

Remember when 

The pen was mightier 

But then 

The sword seems still 

Embrace our will 

And in the end 

Prevailing still
