A Thousand Words


With my pencil full of lead,
sharp at its head.

The line I draw that's a bore,
but soon it'll be something more.

Then I'll draw a circle and maybe some curves,
I hope to add more detail because that's what the picture deserves.

I add one good eye and one eye which i wish wasn't there,
So cover that eye with the character's hair.

Now all I need is a nose and some lips,
Maybe a smile that shift.

So know all there is a smiling character on a piece of paper,
There's also a smiling face on the drawer.
