"With This Pen" is a poem about why I write.

With this pen, I give you me.

The real me you will never see.

The me you will never hear.

The me you will never be.

With this pen I give you my happiness, my pain, my shame, and my blame.

With this pen, I write.

My knowledge and understanding of life as I know it.

My mind and my spirit I give you with this pen.

I write every word and thought I refused to speak.

With this pen, I give you my life.

I write how I fight. 

I fight this hate, I fight this pain, I fight this happiness, I fight this joy, I fight for my own life.

I fight off tears and smiles.

But most of all I fight silence.

With this pen, I give you me.

The me you will never see.

The me you will never hear.

The me you will never be.

loved it! and I think this relates to most writers and the reason why we write is because we do want to be seen but in a deeper way that unless you read our work you will never truly understand. we long to be seen and mostly understood
