[The Young Poet] should stay the hell out of writing classes and find out what's happening around the corner. And bad luck fo the young poet would be a rich father, an early marriage, an early success or the ability to do anything very well.

The ink sinks into the pages
A beautiful flow of black

It covers the pages...

But what shall come next?
A story? a portrait? NO.

A poem, with clarity
Equivalent to the Universe

An incredible sensation arises
When the connection of pen meets paper

Through words knowledge is known
But through this ink, it will always be


The author's comments:
I have a book I write poetry in. The pages are as I call them, "old timey" also known as parchment paper, which means I write on them with a quill pen. Anyway, I was using this quill pen for the first time and the ink would spill out and create splotches all over my paper. That was when this poem hit me.

Thats really cool to write with that kind of pen, and its very detailed the way you wrote the poem.

" Through words knowledge is known"
