I am a Pencil

by Naomi Marko

I create worlds.
Line after line,
word after word.
Tightly gripped in hand I scratch my surface against white nothing
and slowly
I make stories.
Imagination on paper.
Filling the earth with creations from children,
ideas from bosses,
lists from mothers.
I take my job very seriously
because I am replaceable; by books with keys and screens with buttons.
So I keep working hard because I know 
I do my job so much better than they do. 
So line after line,
word after word,
I change the world
one idea at a time.
