A Pen without the ink is like a silent field
And ink all alone, do words never yield
Still, what are tools without a writerís hand?
But a blank page, as a beach without its sand.

What is one to compose where no thoughts exist?
Language void of content is a lack that does persist
Imagination makes it mark when its reach is far
Passions, dreams, and ideas swirl the mind to spar

Life is a book of stories a writer needs to scribe
Expressions laced with wit is the authorís bribe
Action and adventure, thought provoking speech
All visions penned silently níer the ears to reach

Inspirationís perspiration as the night wears long
Coming to the end of words, the last notes to the song
Words outlive their authors, making stories last
To the challenge of the scribe who now is in the past

Once the Word came alive and dwelt upon the earth
This Word was a living being from His common birth
He came up from the page and walked for us to see
Though His life was shortly lived His Words live on in me.

Now I see the strength in writing on a page
The things that I know from experience with age
I write of a narrow road as others go their ways
Declaring that there is but One: O Ancient of Days

Basic theme follows the title very well, and nice grasp of grammar and spelling. I liked the thoughts you provoke within the reader.

Some editing is needed to rearrange the "visions". Reading it aloud, the lines seem scattered and piecemeal. Perhaps some smoothing out of rhythm also?

Blessings for your good thoughts.
