Poem: Drop the Pen

Drop your pen beyond the justice
Drop your Idea beside the system,
Pen may be the power of justice;
While system covers the pen in the darkness!

Today I stand with myself only,
I cannot stand with my brother with sister even with my country.

I cannot because I have fear
I cannot!
Then I drop the pen
I drop my Idea.

When scene comes to mind,
Across the feel of scenario!
I am totally sightless,
I am totally in the nightfall!

Then again I tight up my pen,
Tight up my idea with the fearless eyes!
Then again I tight up my pen in my hand
Tight up my idea with the fearless sights!
