We all start
As a rough draft
Crossings outs and eraser markings cover our skin
Our canvas
Our page
We’re not yet complete
Mistakes are made
Things changed
and pretty soon…
We are a second rough draft
better, but not yet quite perfect
not complete
but a solid start
soon we become fluent
after more cross outs
we change
we grow in length
and just when it seems we’ve got it…
a red pen changes our mistakes
everything that’s shaky
and absolutely everything we’re unsure of
Our rough draft starts again
