"And though she be but little, she is fierce."- Shakespeare

Today was just a really bad day

Everything seemed to get in my way

Everything brought back memories

Of a family like we used to be



So I kinda had a little attitude

She asked if I had a good day at school

I lied

Always do


Really felt like cursing

Instead reverted to crying

Felt like I was dying

Can't say I wasn't trying

I was


Instead of doing what I used to do

I tried something new

Got out my black eraser and


Every memory, all my fears

My thousand tears

And the reason why

Til all that was left was residue


Got out my sparkly #2 pencil

Sharpened it til the point was knife-like

Sharpened it til eraser was left

Then I erased the pain

And mixed the residue with the shavings



Finally, my heart felt better

Seemed some pieces were put together

Then as a last touch, I

Pulled off the glitter tube top

Showered glitter everywhere

In my ears, in my hair

It mixed beautifully with the pencil shavings and

Eraser residue

And then I cried
