If You Give This Girl A Minute - Poem by Dyhanara Rios

If you give this girl a minute of your time
She’s going to want to unravel your mind
Unspooling threads of advice and kindness
Until she’s satisfied
Then she’ll feel comfortable enough to
reach the issues at hand
And talk about her problems
However insignificant they may be
In the whole scheme of things
Once she’s unburdened of (most of)
what rests on her shoulder
She’ll feel free to succeed because you
were exactly what she needed at the time
And when she’s done something great
(Or when life finally went her way)
She’ll come back to you and share her accomplishments
And she’ll be so happy that she’ll try
to express her gratitude in any way she can
So she’ll work on a song
Writing the melody as sweetly as she can
But when the challenge takes its toll
She’ll try writing a poem instead
Writing one verse, then two, then ten
Shaped into one poem, then two, then four
And before she writes any more
She’ll want to share some with you
But she’ll need a minute or two of your time
Reading proudly a thank-you that
sparked from her brain
travelled down every vein
and between every verse and rhyme
Because you were exactly what she needed at that time in her life
