The writer can not die

Many have tried to stop
The writer to stop kissing
His papers with his pen,
But the request, often times,
Runs contrary to what
The writer desires to do.

He lives because he releases
All the urges, joys and pains
With a torch that bears
A light on the society.
Upon which his deep
Recesses content flows.

Imprison the writer
And place him in the
Darkest part of the
Restriction, it will not kill
The revolution,
He gradually turns.

The prison confines,
His experiences tint it
And make it a haven.
Kill the writer but the
Memory of him can not be killed.

It will write beyond
The imaginations
Of the killers.
In fervency, for a long time
Readers remain.

The writer can not die,
Not in the physical realm,
May be, but in the realms
Of the hearts and minds
Of all men.

Pronounce the sentence

Pronounce the sentence.
Hearts will be bruised,
Ears will be pierced,
Living may be in torment;
All in spread cloth impression
Of benefits and injury.

Pronounce the sentence
When grief is not on board,
Without mischief in future’s hand,
With non able to rob off the smile
Peaceful hearts can beam.

Pronounce the sentence
Over all rights to claim, there is,
That love will not suffer bereft
And obedience not indebted.
Strong to build over contentious tussle
Always in hover with life over death.
