I am like a Paintbrush

I am like a paintbrush
Capable of creating many beautiful things,
Give me the right materials,
Then I will create you a new beginning.

I am like a pencil,
Capable of making a new world,
Through the works of imagination,
I can show you what that world can hold.



I am like a pen,
Permanent and bold,
Able to create many words or images,
That your mind can hold.

I am like a piece of modeling clay,
Capable of being molded and formed to fit your needs,
I start off as something ugly and unwanted,
Then turn into something you are proud to call your own.


I am like an eraser,
Capable of fixing my own mistakes,
With the ability to undo unwanted actions,
I am able to live my life the way I am supposed to.

I am like a box of crayons,
Full of color and variety,
Always helpful when using your imagination,
Always helping you get your pictures onto paper,



I am like a piece of paper,
Made with nothing special about me,
As I grow up I am created into something unique,
As well as something you can’t believe you helped make yourself.

Altogether I am creative,
I am who I am supposed to be,
I am who I am,
And I am pretty damn proud of what I have become.

This is AMAZING! I can't believe this didn't get published. I totally gave you five stars. I've spent the past few minutes trying to find something you could fix or work on, but it's spotless. I hope you'll check out mine! (:

This is absolutely fantastic. The descriptions and similes are so perfectly stated, and the imagery is beautiful. You are truly talented with words, don't stop writing! :)
