Pencil

I was once defined.
Pristine. But I am worn down.
Soon I will just break.

Amazing, amazing poem!!!!! I totally get it!!! Personally, I love extended metaphors of all sorts, so great job with that!!!! It's simple and delicate, but it has a lot of deep meaning!

You can write poetry about pencils.  That's awesome!

Thanks for the comment! :) I thought it would be interesting. It's a comparison between a person and a pencil, really. The person is so frustrated and worn out that they are about to "break." :)
