Pencils

Hailey DeJesus

Pens are the worst
When you make a mistake
You’re stuck with it
You can try to cover it up
But everyone can tell it’s there
You can scribble it out
But everyone can still tell it’s there
And when you forget that pen in your pocket
And you will
It will explode in the washing machine
And a cause a disaster with all your clothes
And everyone will know

But pencils
You can write your life’s story with them
Cause when the tip breaks
And it will
You just have to find the courage
To sharpen it again
And keep going
When you make a mistake
And you will
You can just turn it over
And use the eraser
And no one will know it was there
