With a Pencil in My Hand

Creativity and ImaginationPoetry
Artwork by: Sean Velez

With a pencil in my hand, I can do anything

I can be anywhere, anyone, or anything

With a pencil in my hand, I can fly high in the clouds,

Or dive in the deepest depths of the ocean

With a pencil in my hand, I could live in a wolf’s den

Or an eagle’s nest

I could swing through the jungle on a vine,

Or slide down a glacier on my stomach

With a pencil in my hand, I could

Become the 1st woman president or

Invent something someone never thought of

With a pencil in my hand, I could

Create the future or change the past

But, I wouldn’t

That would spoil the surprise

With a pencil in my hand, I can write

Anytime, anywhere

I can make my wishes come true
