Is the Pen Mightier than the Sword?

I Am Mightier Than the Sword

The pen writes the words that shape the minds.
Written words that teach children all over the world.
Children learn to build the future.
The sword kills and attacks.
It rips apart families and destroys loved ones.
It’s the cause of family’s grief and sadness.
The sword is a tool of death- it destroys.
The pen creates and makes what we know and what others know.
The pen shapes the future.
