Pencil: I'm sorry.
Eraser: For what? You didn't do
anything wrong.
Pencil: I'm sorry, you get hurt
because of me. Whenever I
made a mistake, you're always
there to erase it. But as you
make my mistakes vanish, you
lose a part of yourself and get
smaller and smaller each time.
Eraser: That's true, but I don't
really mind. You see, I was made
to do this, I was made to help
you whenever you do
something wrong, even though
one day I know I'll be gone. I'm
actually happy with my job. So
please, stop worrying I hate
seeing you sad.
Our parents are like the eraser,
whereas we children are the
pencil. They're always there for
their children, cleaning up their
mistakes. Sometimes along the
way, they get hurt and become
smaller (older and eventually
pass on).
Take care of your Parents, treat
them with kindness and most
especially love them.
