The Pencil

by Allyssa Magpantay
(Qatar)

I jumped with triumph as the zipper opened
I know that these events only happen often
Joy started when she picked me up

I giggled very timidly like a mouse
She scribbled on the pale paper,
I felt like I was a horrible bully hurting it

Suddenly, my fine tip cracked in half
I was picked up away from the surface
And brought to that dreadful place.....
The killer sharpener!

The torture started when it started
To take off my wooden coat
I saw my skin turn into strips
I wished for it to stop

Finally, my sorrow ended
She strangled my delicate rubber
And put me back to my comfortable shelter
