The Writers Code - Poem by Daniel Hooks

The pen is mightier than the sword
So master the pen my son
Become one with the ink
Use it to sink, into the deep waters of imagination
Use it to weave and ensnare give light and despair
Use it, but use it with care
Remember its you that controls the pen
Not the pen which controls you
A warrior is nothing without his sword
You are nothing without a pen
Use it to duck and weave
With words to make others believe
What you say to be true
May people be inspired by what you write and do!

    Yes I liked this a lot. If only children today were allowed to use imagination, it's something thats lacking in todays society. Well written.Sincerely Ernestine Northover. (Report) Reply
