Remember Kenji Goto ? – The journalist who was killed by ISIS.That incident really shook the world particularly those into writing profession .
So , do we writers write to please others? Are we slaves? No ! We aren’t. We are free to express ourselves as loudly as we can . This is what the world needs to know especially those who defame writers and even kill them for their writings.
…I am free to write
I write not to appease or pacify
My words do revere and glorify
Men,regions , affairs I write about
Like leaves they rustle , or like Satan shout.
I don’t gild my words or sugarcoat
The truth in all forms I do quote
Deceive not thy eyes with beauty elusive
For I show you filth ~ vile and abusive !
Read thou ! The words that I write
Behold the world from mine eyes
See the petty and the pretty side
Read the feelings that in my heart resides
They kill me for what I say
But in no way leads me to dismay
I worship my pen and am not coward
Sooth! My pen is mightier than their sword.
