I've spent too many years sitting in the back of a classroom.
We see thousands of chalkboard faces in the evening haze of rush hour traffic. The nicest days of the year always happen when our Teachers give us detention. We can't be trusted to punish ourselves. Grab a stick of chalk and begin.
100 times- I will not cheat on my husband.
100 times- I will not miss my nephew's soccer game so I can drink alone.
100 times- I will not leave smaller tips for the older, less attractive waitresses.
100 times- I will finally get the courage to kiss her tonight.
100 times- I will tell him it is over if he hits me again.

100 times- I will notice the sky today.
100 times- I will invite the widow in 5A to Christmas Dinner.
100 times- I will call my sister.
100 times- I will learn the difference between what is worth fighting for and what isn't.

This piece spoke to me. It yelled at me. It hit my heart like a bullet. It has so much emotion, so much kindness, so much love. That even though it is really simple. . . It brings out everything in my heart. You hit the nail on the head with this. You are a fantastic writer. Love it.
The only thing I could say so you can take something away from this is just; never lose sight of what you have done here. How you connected to an audience through emotional and verbal production. This what poetry is.
Very original, and yes what if there where no erasers? You could not erase life's mistakes or promises you made. it has melodic rhythm and really gets you in the heart. those are great promises for anyone to make and actually follow through with them and not erase any single line of promise. mixing class room life with the real world makes a absolutely great mixture which is true teacher teach things to you that are important to you in life. i gave you five stars on every thing because this is the best piece of literature have ever read on deviant art out of my 2 years of experience!
