The eraser may seem the most forgotten tool in a student’s pencil case, although it is the thing that is used the most. The eraser erases typos, and mistakes. And Just like how the eraser comes attached to the end of a pencil, it is also attached to human’s brain. What human never makes mistakes? No one, we all do, we all fall in the intriguing manipulative paths of the devil, but an eraser teaches us that there is always a way back, that there is always a chance for redemption. The eraser is that U-turn that appears in the road to tell you that you can go back and start from the beginning, that you have another chance and take care not to waste it. Mistakes and Redemption are like 2 beacons; each alluring a specific side in our souls. Sometimes, we go in this way and sometimes we go in that, but it’s not bad nor is it wrong. Making mistakes is what makes us humans and seeking redemption and forgiveness is what makes us alive. They both continue each other, just like a pencil and an eraser; if there wasn’t pencil writing and making mistakes, the eraser would be useless, and if there wasn’t an eraser, the pencil would then become afraid to write anything, which makes it also useless. If a certain person knew that he/she can’t erase their mistakes, they would never try anything which will make them living dead, and if God didn’t give the human a way back, he would have created a flawless humanity. It is totally approved and accepted for us to make mistakes and try to use our erasers to wipe them off; it is actually recommended to go on with life and don’t trap ourselves in the past and never let it define the present and the future. On the other hand, an eraser doesn’t teach us only that, but it also teaches us that whenever it is used, it gets dirtier and smaller. Our mistakes are just like that, they define us, and we should know that we have a few shots in erasing them before our erasers end. So, just as much as we need to use the flexible erasers to wipe off our mistakes, we should bear in mind that it won’t last forever and that we should take care and know that every mistake counts, because it doesn’t just hold us back but it also takes much of our effort and lives to forget and erase.
On Balance, a pencil is just like a human being, it writes down his story; his life, his passions, achievements, success and mistakes. And an eraser is just like the human passion and instinct that seeks forgiveness and erasing the mistakes he has ever made. So, be careful and picky when you write your story , make mistakes, but erase wisely and learn from them, and remember that you only have few papers to fill out so write with wisely and lively. May everyone’s papers always be colorful and full with life.
