Pen In My Hand

To write with a pen in my hand
Means to speak what I can not say.
To create words line after line
Means to drive this hunger away.

line break

To starve for so long
Means words are valued more.
To plead for approval
Of my own mind gets me sore.

line break

To write with a pen in my hand
Means happiness dispersed for now.
To use this outlet as a friend
Brings a small joy to my brow.

Me
