Words slide off the lead,
creating permanent marks;
writer's secret code.
~Lindsey O'Connell


I write in pen because pen cannot be erased;
It can be covered up, whited out, and written over
But the marks the ink leave never truly go away.
The ink stays forever.

I live to the fullest because I cannot be erased;
I will not be covered up, whited out, or written over
The pmarks I leave on the world will never truly go away.
My memory shall stay forever.

I write because I have a voice
And voices can never be covered up, whited out, or written over.
Our voices will never fade away.
They will be heard until forever ends.
