This is a poem describing of a powerful weapon which one should be proud to possess.

© All copyrights reserved to Kenisha Liyanage.

Weapon can be any object,
Maybe used to protect yourself,
Or maybe to hurt someone
Due to blundered decisions.

Can a weapon be used for good?
A soldier may say for destruction,
Will it be the same for common people?
But for writers it's a no.

I know what is going in your mind,
Your wondering why I said that,
Weapon has it's own variety,
And writers' weapon is the pen.

The carve their thoughts in a paper,
By the use of a powerful weapon,
A pen show miracle wonders,
And express everything in one's mind.

A pen can bring good to the society,
A pen can change thoughts of individuals,
A pen can cause peace and damage,
Isn't a pen dangerous as well?

Just imagine how much a writer can do,
They write many things using one single pen,
Innovations are produced in the field of literature,
Everyday new thing can be born.

My dear friend the weapon I love,
Is non other than the pen I use to write,
It jots down everything in my mind,
While my river of thoughts and imaginations flow.

I am proud to possess a weapon like that,
A weapon that helps and keeps my heart pumped,
Are you proud to possess such weapon?
Tell it out loud if you are.

It is truly amazing to possess the ability to use words in this way, huh? We can allow people to feel the highest of highs and lowest of lows and WE control it, like a pied piper, so to speak... Wonderful work, this one.
