Dream for the Future:
For everyone to be accepting of others
The Voice Inside One’s Head
is the tiny voice inside one’s head
That cries to be let out
But does not leave when told to.
A dog that cannot make up its mind.
Poems are found everywhere,
In the dirty brown snail climbing up a tall tree.
Or in the fluffy white cloud seen yesterday that was not there today.
Maybe poems are behind the creaky closet door that refuses to open
Or inside the soft lush flowers that open in the beginning of May.
Covered by doubt,
and are shut away
Open the door and let words flow
Or keep the poem hidden from view.
Put thoughts inside a chest and throw away
