I have a question for any and all who have tried to read...
I write in pen.
I write in pen to watch the contrast of the directed line of black ink to the crisp white paper; the starkness and finality of my words. I write in pen for the reason that writing with pencil is too easy. With pencil, the lead can scrape across the page, but with one misplaced comma, with one fumble of the English language, it can be deleted as easily as it was written. I write in pen for the reason that life comes with no eraser and neither should my words.
I write in pen so that my words are permanent. Like life, when something is said, something is done, it cannot be removed. Perhaps a slash can cut through a sentence worth forgetting, but never will it leave the page. I write in pen to see what I had written, what I did wrong, and rewrite a phrase that better fits what I have to say. But never will I lose the words that once defined what I had felt.
I write in pen to watch myself grow. I write in pen to watch my life through uncensored eyes. I write in pen to watch the smeared words from tears, the trembling slant of anger, and the high lines of joy. For even with a stroke through the middle, the sentence was once important.
I will forever write in pen so that my words will never fade. I will forever write in pen so that each bold stroke I make will never leave a once blank page. I will forever write in pen so that my life will be remembered as it was and not as it should be. I will forever write in pen because that is the only true medium of life.
