I Missed Reading Their Poems - Poem by Mary Jesusa Villegas

I missed reading their poems

These works of the great poets

Who revealed that I can do the same

I can be great too, if I become

proud of

my name.

I missed reading their poems

And I envy their works

And as I read

I plead

That I could also write my worth.

I was reading their poems

When I was empty, bare, and alone

So I’m gonna reread their poems,

rummaging through my cabinet

finding the little girl’s

little home.
