The Pen - A Poem

This is one of my favorite poems because, well, I'm a writer. I believe I wrote the poem in college when taking a bunch of English theory classes. The big question "Is the author dead?" really made me think about the power of the pen and the creation of words that I immediately disown when I put them to paper.


What do you think?



The Pen

With a mind―

My mind.

(I gave it away,

didn’t you know?

It’s called suicide.)

I gave myself up

Before paper and pen.

Paper became the oppressed;

Pen became the ruler―

The tyrant.

And I became the deceased.


The pen wrote.

It moved.

Willingly,

I gave it my life.


Would the story

Be of a knight
