Reflection of the pen, pencil, paper and ink.

Posted on September 18, 2016 at 8:25 AM

From the Book:  AGAINST ALL ODDS" by Armando Valladares.  

They've taken everthing away from me

pens

pencils

ink

because they don't want 

me to write

and they've sunk me here

in this cell

but they aren't going to drown me

that way.

They've taken everything away from me

-or almost everything-

I still have my smile

the proud sense that I'm a free man

and an eternally flowering garden

in my soul.

They've taken everything away from me

pens

pencils

but I still have life's ink

-my own blood-

and I'm still writing poems with that.
