The Plight of the Black Pen

2014/01/24 Writing Practice

It's laying on the desk, next to several other pens. The only difference is it's color. Black and Silver pick up more of the light from the room than the other pens do. Maybe this is why he is more aware of his plight then they are. They lay there, simple, content to do nothing. Some are prettier, but less functional than he is. But they all lay, unchosen, for now. Is Black the only pen that chooses to ponder his fate, his plight, his meaning in this life?

Each pen is different, but this pen feels more different. He lays there. Incapable of moving until The Author chooses him for his craft. He was not chosen today. He will remain until he is either chosen, or discarded. The pen has no choice but to wait, and find out his fate. To see if The Author will use him today.

 Allas, The Author gets up to leave, off to work for the day. The pen was not chosen this day... but there is hope, tomorrow may be different. The pen will keep being who the pen is. Because one day, he just knows it, the pen will fulfill his destiny!
