Pencil - Poem by Jasmine Black

The tool that lets me express myself
When I need it most
The tool that allows me to breathe
When it feels like I am drowning
The tool that helps me keep my sanity
When I feel like I'm losing it
The tool I would be lost without

    Good train of thought, well articulated, nicely encapsulated and insightfully penned with conviction. A lovely depiction of the therapeutic effects of writing, a beautiful tribute to the pencil. Thanks for sharing Jasmine. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply

    This is your best poem so far. I prefer to use a pen myself (see my poem O HOMEM DA CANETA [PEN MAN]) , but pencils are great tools and have the advantage of being able to be erased. When I make a mistake with my pen, I just cross it out and continue. I have tried erasable pens but never yet found one I liked.
    Keep writing, Jasmine.
