POWER AND PEN

Muscles can make one strong from outside

but the quality of one’s strength

is better judged from one’s writing,

originating from inner core.


Give one a pen instead of pistol to test one’s strength...


A weak guy can write a beautiful poem,

which will provide strength to many.

While a body builder will keep the paper blank

making one’s followers ever disheartened.

Good one. The strength is in one's written words.

Kathy Henderson from Pa on May 04, 2021:

I love this; however, some bodybuilders may use the pen eloquently. I suppose anybody that uses force over the power of words should take a breath. If only the hearts of man could genuinely be softened and reveal what ignites their truth. Therein lies true strength.

Thank you for igniting our thoughts with your poetry.

Good point! The pen is mightier than the sword etc.
