What will I do if my pen is taken away?
What will I do if I lose my parchment?
Will I remain the same if my inspiration deserts me?
Will my sanity be the same if I can’t do that which I cherish most?
How will my head handle everything my eyes sees?
How will my mind cope with the burden of everything my ear hears?
Take my wealth not my will
Depart with my jewels not my pen
Steal my diamond not my parchment
To lose my will is to lose my sanity
To lose my pen is to lose my voice
To lose my parchment is to erase my existence.
