Writing My Destiny



The pens I’ve saved,
From very many years;
Now write my words-
Of my smile n my tears.

The ink of my destiny,
Was resting till now
As if in waiting-
To support my silent vow.

Perhaps I had known:
So saving through years,
Maybe It’s Their Gratitude;
That their Ink is Now My tears.

    So glad you repeated your 55 below the graphic. I was afraid my old eyes weren’t going to be able to finish it as it was.

    I probably looked like a dog while reading this. At the end, I caught myself tilting my head. lol. That last line is so sad, though.

      Thanks Auddie!
      Well If I say- the last line meant I pouring my heart out- maybe it won’t sound that sad. But the fact remains that I am giving all out that was in me- all that was not so pleasant.

    From nothing, a writer’s pen fashions magic—a mystical connection, from mind and heart through pen. Ink endures over time, possibly to be shared with a stranger in another century; where reader and writer come alive together for a space…as the words dance between them.
