An Ode to My Bestfriend, The Pen
The Pen became my Bestfriend
When I found it hard to express myself aloud
It was something about the lump that formed in my throat that always made it hard to tell someone an answer I knew was right
Or to express how I was feeling whether happy or sad
To share my thoughts on anything I felt I couldn’t find the words to verbally say
Kinda like some people find an outlet through sports or dancing or singing
The Pen was always there to greet me with open arms
Allowed me to be as open and free as possible
The art of expression became a means of escape
I found that I cleave to my Bestfriend to help me think clearly and pick apart any turmoil that’s usually bubbling underneath
It’s the best way I can get you to understand the person that is me
And when I’m tongue-tied with butterflies in my stomach and no sentence in sight
I allow my mind to do the talking onto the tablet and through the Pen I write
