I will write

(written May 2023)

My pen is my life-blood
without it, I cannot survive.
My ink is the hand that
wipes my tears away.
It is the sun on a cloudy day.
It is my lover, my friend,
my guide.
Always by my side.
When darkness surrounds me,
it is my light.
How can I shine
without its ray of hope?
As I breathe, I will scribe
and when I die, I will write
with ash and smoke.
