Best Poem of Khembottra Oum

24 Hour Donut Shop

Your doors are always open to me,
A place where I find solace and peace,
This is the only place where I wanna be.

By myself and its 3 in the morning.
The donut maker doesn't want to talk.
Its quiet and my heart is not very far.

I look outside the glass window,
Streetlight people with no place to go.
We're the same, searching for a real home.

The world is beautiful at this time,
The pain in my eyes may never stop,
But I always find hope in this 24 hour donut shop.
