The Pencil and The Eraser

I went into a bookshop when I heard a conversation from an office supplies section. This is a conversation of two little creation (Scary! nagsasalita sila).

Excerpt from a text messages from a friend.

PENCIL: I am really sorry.

ERASER: for what?

PENCIL: I'm sorry because you get hurt because of me. Whenever I made a mistake, you're always there to erase it. But as you make my mistakes vanish, you lose a part of yourself. You get smaller and smaller each time.

ERASER: That's true. But I don't really mind. You see, I was made to do this. I was made to help you whenever you do something wrong. Even though one day, I know I'll be gone and you'll replace me with a new one, I'm actually happy with my job. So please, stop worrying. I hate seeing you sad.

Be careful of what you are doing so you won't lose someone so important to you in the end. 


It makes sense honestly, but in my own point of view; The pencil and the eraser are a perfect match. They help each other in a way that the other will erase and eliminate the mistakes that that other does. However, if I love to draw or I am someone who is fascinated in drawing using pencil and eraser, I believe that there is a reason why the pencil needs to write and draw and sometimes commit mistakes. But those mistakes are not made just for nothing. Again, everything has a reason and purpose. Mistakes are there to make someone strong. The eraser can only erase what's needed. But in the end its the one who is holding the pencil and the eraser will decide and come up with a great and a wonderful picture.

Make sense?

  7. When I receive this text message a month ago, I realized that love is not just about getting who you want and be happy about it. However, in most cases it is about giving and sacrificing. Giving to the point that you give everything including your life just to make your beloved happy and safe.
