我拿起笔,也是在为自己寻找继续生存的理由和力量,拯救我即将枯萎的心。而提笔的那一刻,才知道语言的无用,文字的无力。它们似乎永远无法叙述出一个人内心的爱与乐,苦与仇。

try

To find a reason and the strength for myself to continue my life, I took up the pen to retrieval my fading heart. But I didn't know the uselessness of the language and the weakness of words until I held my pen. It seemed to me that they never could depict the love and happiness, the bitterness and hate in a person's inner heart.

my try:-)

I  write to find myself a reason and give myself a strength to live on, to save my twilight soul.
But only when  I hold a pen do I feel the powerlessness of language, the strengthlessness of words,
It seems impossible to define love, joy, misery and hate with them.

I think "write for" is better. "write to" is often followed by "someone". Thanks for your idea;-)

I grabbed my pen, as if grabbing the straw that could lend me the strength and reasons needed to live on, the straw that could rescue my withering soul. Yet not until the moment I grabbed my pen, did I come to the realization that language is so wan, and words so pale, that they always seem to fall short in expressing the joy and sorrow, love and hate of a human.
If winter comes, can spring be frozen ahead?

I come up with a phrase "feebleness of words". I think it would be better than the one I used before.
