If a picture paints a thousand words
Then where does that leave me A pen for a brush and ink as my paint And the words are what you all see
If the pen is mightier than the sword
Then a warrior I must be With a cutting remark and sarcasm bold A shield of prose for we
And if the shield wall buckles
Our hearts start sinking I’ll find some words And we’ll all start singing
Our hearts will soar
High above the crowd The Lion’s Roar So deafeningly loud
And when all is won and said & done
A history I will write Of how the English Lions Regained their lands, that night! Honest poems on Imagination Empathetic poems about Words Dynamic poems on Writing
