What Happens If We Were All Made Of Paper

Updated on August 13, 2013

Life Wouldn't Be So Easy

First every time I see the scissors I would run the other way

I would be light as a feather and blow in the breeze

My family and friends could of come from the tallest trees

Water would not be my friend

As it can easily turn my day

Into one that makes it easy for me to fall apart

I would be a kids best friend

They could draw on me at anytime

Paint me to give me color

Make me fancy and different

Shade me with a pencil or highlight my best assets

Once and awhile bring the eraser out to change me even more

Easy on the white out it makes me so pale

Bring me whereever you go

Traveling so much easier

The world population problem solved

You can stack us in piles or throw us in the air like leaves

One thing I would love the best

Is that all books would be saved

Because they would give us some much comfort and joy

Who knows what each page may hold

Maybe it was Roger or a Carmela

Little Tommy or Gail

A family reunion or a party

A crowd of strangers who have lost their way

Each day would be a surprise and I would have to be extra careful where I lay

      Michael-Milec Today if I was made of paper I would be a paper plane tossed up in the air and see how far I would fly. Thank you so much for reading and sharing such useful comments.

      Hi Michael, are you in a fiction? Thank God that He isn't of paper, because He has created "us" -man- in His image and original purpose was to dominate the world under His jurisdiction. . . and His final gift to mankind has just open that possibility a g a i n , to everyone who will b . l . e . e .

      Voted funny & interesting.

      Hope that this won't ruin your day.

      P.S. ( what does it mean when people say " I love you?" this might be applicable here .) I do.

      What novel idea? I think it might be fun to be made of paper! I especially would like to be a classic book. I would be so treasured and loved. I would be handled with TLC by millions and millions of readers....maybe a fairy tale....oops! I'm gettin carried away. Voted up, interesting and shared
