"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams." -Eleanor Roosevelt

My pen seeps through the paper

As I press down hard

Cascading in little streams

The ink flows

The pen breaks


I reach for another

But still the ink remains

Staining my paper

The ink won’t disappear

It spreads

It covers my words with red

My words look bloody

The paper dirty with my sins
