Poetmother In Rags At The Doors Of Ikea


My daughter lives in there.
There's no way I could stay:
Look at what I'm wearing,
Even though I gave my daughter.

You see all my sin.
No way could I fit in.
But still,
I have given daughter,

So stand aside!
I will not be denied
A little look inside
What I've given daughter.

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
