What Does the Pen Prefer to Write?

What Does the Pen Prefer to Write?

Written by Nishat Aftabi


What should a pen write,

victory or defeat?

What should a pen write,

folly or wisdom?

What should a pen write,

love or hatred?

What should a pen write,

happiness or sadness?

What should a pen write,

peace or war? 

What should a pen write,

black or white?

Should the pen focus on the nays,

While defying the positives?

If there’s nothing to criticise? 

Let the pen decide,

What it prefers to write!
