The Pen and the Sword

Battles
fought,
the pen
and the sword,
supramacy
the prize,
the winner
takes it all,

mighty words
written,
on gentle
paper scrolls,
or blood drawn
to end,
the enemy’s
onslaught,

both feared
for the depth,
of their
potential strike,
for either
can slice a heart,
a relationship
or a mind,

both often
justified,
by the logic
of survival,
the question
of supramacy,
however mostly
left unresolved,

till a drop
of water falls,
the words melt
and the paper
succumbs,
the red stains
washed,
and the sword
rusts,

what eventually
rules both,
is the gentle
teardrop
that falls,
from
sorrowed
grieving eyes,

or the one
that sometimes
falls,
gently
but purposefully,
from the
witnessing
heavens above.
