Dear 2020

Alex Sullivan

Take away the sword, States can be saved without it

You cannot take the swords power without the will of the pen 

For the pen conducts symphonies and writes the fates of many

It sends man to the moon and sends men into battle

The pen holds the voices of musicians, writers, politicians alike

For, to the pen they are all the same hand.

The pen is the story teller. For history is written by the victors 

But without the pen they cannot be alive in minds

For the pen is mightier than the sword


Truths and lies alike

For those who pass

And for those who carry our future on their backs

Their names spoken 

For those who mourned 

The morning rose 

For the pen is mightier than the sword


For the souls who spoke out against the tyranny

For evils vanquished by ex- enemies 

For crimes yet to be punished

For the fires of passion must burn brighter

For the mind is our guiding light

May we face future foes

With hand in hand, heart in heart

For the pen is mightier than the sword.
