Pen of Life

The story of my life is written in pen
when i make a mistake that is when

I wish I could go back and change
erase a little, rearrange 

pencils are my favorite to use
because then you can’t abuse 

the power that comes with words
for many miles they can be herd

some people help along the way
some of them can even sway

my opinions and my views
all of them know how to use

words to make people bend
even put war to an end

words come in handy you see
that is why i wish to be

able to use a pen instead
that way when i end up dead

not only will i have won some bets
but i will have no regrets
