Be Restored My Broken Pen - Poem by Obed dela Cruz

Seasons have passed and I wrote many things.
I’ve expressed and narrated my stories.
I never wasted my papers and ink.
Looking at my pages, you can prove it.

Now as I was trying to write something
The pen that that I’m using broke suddenly
Tears and words could not explain the moment
Now I shout, “Be restored my broken pen”.

O my pen, why have you done this to me?
Please let me write again wonderful things.
My hands became so confused when you broke.
I’m like an artist with nothing to stroke.

The ink and the next pages are ready.
Be revived and don’t keep me on waiting.
There are many things that should be written.
There are things the world should know and possess.

Be repaired and be the way you should be.
Fulfill your purpose and your destiny.
Now I cry, “Be restored my broken pen”.
With the ink, give the papers good contents.

    Dela:
    First may I thank you for your comments on my poems. This one I too have read. The title intrigued me and I was not disappointed. Writers block, perhaps?

    The pen can be restored by the heart strong enough to bring out the words lost. A wonderful piece. (Report)Reply

    When writing is deep in your soul,
    nothing will stop that, not a broken
    pen, nothing. Great message, Obed.

    Hugs,
    Marilyn

    Your pen may be broken Obed, but the heart of the poet will continue to bring the words even if written in the sand. Keep going brother poet, a very fine work of art by a young poet. Your friend Lynn (Report)Reply

    Poets sometimes face periods when they feel they don't have the same power to create. Sometimes it's exactly those moments that represent an even more abundant poetic inspiration in disguise! (Report)Reply

    a nice relatonship with Pen/ Restore your Pen Obed! ! !

    let your Pen writes more than rever,
    let it writes about yesterday, now,
    tomorrow and forever...
    let it writes about Memories,
    Truth, Love and Peace
    that Pen is the well of Ink
    restore it and think, think
    about the life and its color Black or Pink...

    ThanksForSharing /

    Hi Obed,
    It seems to us that the pen you were using meant a lot to you.
    It was a true symbol of so many stories you had already shared with the world. Besides, you suddenly shed tears because you thought 'that pen' was due to accompany your future thoughts, letting you disclose further secrets, we think.
    Good luck to you!
