Treasure Island

Mary Jesusa Villegas

Quiet Daydream

My sister hates boys
I do too
But I'm in love
in my quiet daydream

My mother hates herself
I do too
But we're wonderful
in my quiet daydream

My grandma hates talking about the past
I do too
But we've already moved on
in my quiet daydream

My cousin hates studies
I do too
But we're both brilliant
in my quiet daydream

I hate my age
I hate doing nothing
But my To Do List is long
in my quiet daydream

I hate ideas
I hate thinking too
But I am a writer
in my quiet daydream

I hate 'zero'
I hate inadequacy
But I'm greatly blessed
in my quiet daydream

I hate religionism
But I don't hate God
I'm a tank full of love
in my quiet daydream

They hate the darkness
I do too
They have the light
just inside their pockets
But we're all staying in
A quiet daydream

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.
