Khembottra Oum

(December 3,1985 / Dallas, Texas)

Hero of Poem


If I have truly lived a life of my poems
would that make me a better man.

I would be a hypocrite if I told you so,
for I am no hero of poem.

I live within my dreams and the dreams of poets,
my reality is dark and somber.

Each and everyday, I try and I try...
to be a hero of poem.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
