I Have A Corner Poem by Khairul Ahsan

I Have A Corner

Rating: 4.9

I have a soft corner in my heart,
For the quiet, unobtrusive child,
Whose talent is often rated low
'Cause he is unassuming and mild.

I have a small corner in my heart,
For those whose kindness I enjoyed,
But couldn't return the favor in kind,
A pity that often makes me feel void.

I have some space left in my heart,
For the boy whose dad passed away,
Ominous fate looming large on his mom,
Her malignant tumor signalling fast decay.

My heart always keeps some space
For the mourning bird that lost her mate,
Fallen to the gunshot of a happy hunter,
Who wanted it be served on a dinner platter.

Come one and come all, if you think,
You would be happy with just a piece,
And not be bothered by who got what,
With everyone shall we live in peace.

It would be an honor for anyone to occupy even the smallest space in your heart.

Certainly not hallucinations! This was so soft and gentle and simple to read... but it says so much, with such conviction. I loved it, I read it twice.
