I'm writing this in pencil, Because that's the way it should be, Faint and easily erasable, Knowing that it will never last forever, That's the way life should be. Then as we write our history down, We can take back, We can rub off, All our mistakes, All the wrong turns we make. But we need these mistakes, To make us who we are, To make me a better me, To make you a wiser you, To really live and learn. I thus so pick up a pen, you must so pick up a chisel, As I write mine down on parchment, You etch yours out in stone, And we never again live our lives in pencil.
