Pen, My Supreme soulmate



 O Supreme Pen! ‘You are mightier than the sword’

With the power to make or mar life next to the Lord.

A true source of comfort and support to the bard,

You afford me peace which is the greatest reward.


When tears drench my bleak eyes like a pool

I pour out my emotions holding you as a tool.

Then my heavy heart becomes light and cool

With the verve to trounce the world and rule.


Once I sit with you I gain the wisdom of a sage

And my thoughts roam free without any verge.

Had I not picked you at my worst falling stage

My life would have been just an empty page.


You touch my imagination like a magician’s wand

Giving shape to all those my intellect shall demand

You are so humble that I can hold you in my hand

And acquire the power to create an imaginary land.


Be it a moment of grief or an occasion of mirth,

You are the soulmate whom I rely on this earth.

Had you not shown me new visions to move forth

By now I would have left with no trace of my birth.

The pen is a powerful tool for writing. And writing has power. Let me give you a famous sonnet by Quevedo, a famous Spanish poet, in this sonnet the poet writes something that goes beyond death itself. Such is the power of the word. Congratulations on your poem.


Perhaps whatever final shadow that
the shining day may bring could close my eyes,
and this my soul may well be set aflight
by time responding to its longing sighs;

but it will not, there on the farther shore
its memory leave behind, where once it burned:
my flame the icy current yet can swim,
and so severe a law can surely spurn.

Soul by no less than a god confined,
veins that such a blazing fire have fueled,
marrow to its glorious flames consigned:

the body will abandon, not its woes;
will soon be ash, but ash that is aware;
dust will be, but dust whose love still grows.
