Inside The Red Circle

i was playing with papers
then you handed me a pencil
i scribbled for years
then you told me
my name could be spelled out
with just few letters
so you bought me uniforms
and five more pencils
you didn’t tell me there were 26 letters
and i had to remember each one
i got real lost between b and d
there i learned about mistakes
which always got circled in red inks
i took two steps back
and feared the colour red
and the mistakes inside
but you handed me an eraser
and taught me mistakes can be corrected
and never to be ashamed of the
things i had not learned yet
since then i have learned to spell
a little more than my name
and most of the things i know
i learned them inside the red circle
