Songs of My Pen ~ Age 13

So this is the first poem I wrote in Golden Book, back when I was around 13. Certainly not my first poem, but the first I put down in that special little felt-paged place. It was an introduction, if you will. So here it is…

Songs Of My Pen (age 13)
Everything that lies
On the surface of my brain
Everything that threatens
To drive me insane
Every secret, precious thing
I’ve decided to leave untold
Everyone and every thing
That on my heart
Took strong hold…
All these things become
The Songs Of My Pen.
