"A good writer does not write as people write, but as he writes."
Charles Montesquieu (1689 - 1755)

Welcome to The Writing of Michael Abelardo de la Pena.  Here you will find my
thoughts and emotions put into words.  I hope my writing leaves
you remembering my name.
 
I must write or go insane...

"A great poet is the most precious jewel of a nation."
Ludwig van Beethoven (1770 - 1827) German composer
 
"A musician must make music, an artist must paint, a poet must write, if he is to be ultimately at peace with himself. What a man can be, he must be."
Abraham Maslow (1908 - 1970) US psychologist, philosopher
 
"A poem. . . begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. . . . It finds the thought and the thought finds the words. "
Robert Frost (1874 - 1963) US poet
 
"A poet looks at the world as a man looks at a woman."
Wallace Stevens (1879 - 1955) US poet, author

FOR WHAT ITS WORTH

Blank page,

Speak to me

And help me to create

Something to last

Into perpetuity:

Thats all I want,

Just a little of me to be

Immortal

To last in the minds

Of those that care for such things.

If someone reads this

And says

"I understand"

Then I guess I haven't wasted my time.

"Why do writers write?  Because it isn't there."
