The Pencil of Life


They say the pen is stronger than the sword,
But I prefer a pencil with a great eraser.

I fight with my mind with the mighty led,
But I am bound to make mistake on my quest.

Using rubber to fix the errors of life,
Wiping away the misdeeds by restoring any screw-ups.

Relying on logic and reason to form intelligent conclusions,
Writing with caution, even though I can eliminate my flaws.

Always be prepared with a pencil instead of a pen,
Because ink leaves a permanent mark that’s hard to repair.

    Have used lots of erasers, write out and liquid paper in my time. I wish I had learned logic and reason earlier. Have been too trusting. Thanks for sharing.
