How Everyone Writes

I write with this pencil and I erase with this pencil.
All my mistakes can disappear with this simple eraser.
Moment after moment, day after day
I write on and erase my errors.

But one day,
I awake to my biggest mistake
and I immediately turn to the eraser on my pencil…
Only to find that I hear the sound of metal screeching on my paper.

My biggest mistake would not erase
and my white paper life became stained.

I lost my energy and will along with the power to erase my errors and
to write freely.

My blank paper became gray
And there was nothing I could do to erase these wasted marks that dulled my precious consciousness.
