The Pencil

The pencil maker took the pencil aside, just before putting it into the box.  “There are five things you need to know before I send you out into the world,” he said. “Always remember these five things, and you’ll be a great pencil.

“One: You are capable of many great things, but only if you allow yourself to be held in someone’s hand.

Two:   You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, but you’ll need it to become a better pencil.

Three: You have the ability to correct the mistakes you make.

 “Four: The most important part of you will always be what’s inside.

And Five: On every surface where you are used, regardless of its condition, you must leave your mark.”

The pencil understood and promised to remember.
