A pen is a sword that has a shield of paper and an armor of words


My shadow
Along the hard sidewalk
Of life
And its troubles
I can touch the sidewalk
Pretend that it's my reflection
Happy
Laughing
Striking
But I am not
And neither is it
It is dark
My tears
Splattered onto it
Like unfit paint on a canvas
Ruins the image
But without it
My life
The painting
would never be the same
