Poem of the Day – “Expression”


Ex-press yourself

Turn off the iron

Let yourself be wrinkled

Instead of uniform straight

And smooth and

Know you don’t have to be perfect

 

Ex-press yourself

And don’t let others

Fold you away in a box.

Rip off your label,

Because you are stronger

Than the gentle cycle

 

Ex-press yourself

Don’t let others throw you to the ground

Or rip holes in you

Or step on you

Or stain you

Or crumple you up in a pile of dirty laundry

 

Ex-press yourself

Allow your friends

To pick you up when you are down

And mend your seams

And reattach the buttons

That fall off
