Pencil

Just an ordinary pencil

Gripped on a child’s hand.

It’s lead writes elegantly

With pride and honor to be part of the work.

Just an ordinary pencil

Gripped on an adult’s hand.

The lead quickly dashes through the paper

As it quickly scribbles below the signature.

Just an ordinary pencil

Hiding in a pencilcase

Hiding in the dark

Which can’t be seen…

Just an ordinary pencil

Floats on top of a desk.

It’s lonely , it’s just there..

It’s waiting to be used.
