Through the eyes of a White Crayon

Hi friends ….Today while cleaning drawers I found single, unused white crayon in empty box  so thought of writing down its emotions on pape. Hope you like it.

Disclaimer- I am not sad or emotional writer, love happy stories, happy endings 😊.  I like all colours including white.

Through the eyes of a White Crayon

I am unique,divine & proud of my purity,
My 11 friends  who were my reflection but having different identity,
Spreading colour was only our purpose
Excited in that confined box no idea about outside world


One day door of our destiny opened by tiny fingers
My friends were picked one by one
Outside giggles made me more anxious
I left alone, waiting for my turn


My friends returned but not my reflections,
They were broken,  peeled & thrashed
But all happy as their purpose was served
Days passed I stood alone, sad & untouched


After many days I was suddenly picked up,
Saw my friends imprints on
papers,walls & minds
Horrified when I was thrown out of window,
took my last breath & left permanent mark on the road.

  2. My white crayon is the only one out of my newest box… removed this weekend so that my boyfriend could use it for truck work. Sometimes, white crayons get to have all the fun! Just not often. This post made me smile. Thanks for checking out my blog and inspiring me to find yours. All the best!

  3. Very creative one. 👍White crayon isn’t useless always. A tip. Draw something using white crayon and paint the paper with blue ink. The white drawing stands out. 😀
    Good post and keep up the work. 😊

  7. True! I am sure this poem brought back memories of childhood not just for me, but for everyone who read it. 🙂 It made me smile to remember the days I used to make effort to use that untouched white crayon. It always disturbed me how that was the least used crayon.
