The Pen

I am priviliged to have a contribution from a poet new to me called Cathy Miller- I hope you enjoy her poem.

The Pen
She has thoughts and feelings
that flow from the tip of her pen
to the core of our soul.
Awaking thoughts
we wish to
ignore.

She cries out
feelings of
pain
onto the
stain
of her page.

The strength she shows by expression
will forever course through the beat of our hearts.
To ignore would
throw our world deeper apart.

Her knuckles white.
Tears of red
Her truth will be said.
Words that inspire the masses.

When everything fades,
words remain.
Pain
flowing into
the sea of humanity.
