A single pen could make a library, setting every book apart.
It can fill a museum, creating inky works of art.
One pen may right the most important letter, to a lover far away.
A pen signed in our countryโ€™s will, forever here to stay.
Ink inscribed the worldโ€™s religions, from the devil and the divine.
Preserved our childrenโ€™s fairytales, some cruel and some kind
Still calculating answers to the unknown, we can only hope to be right
And sketched plans for the planes that helped us take flight
A pen wrote this poem, this poet now shares with you
Who hands you a pen, so what will you do?
