BECAUSE YOU LOVE HER, DESPITE

when someone tells you that you are dumb
be dumber
when someone treats you like a poor being
be poorer
when someone treats you like a flower vase
or a wall
be the flower vase or the wall

you are not dumb, you are not poor, you are a flower
and you are a stair
not just a vase or a wall

tell that someone exactly about what you are in all
smartness, agility and beauty

tell her, you just want to make her happy.
even by being what you are not.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
