Make me a boat

Make me a boat

A Poem by Melanie Genevieve

more of a journal entry for me than a poem

make me a boat out of construction paper
set sail to soft sheets and hot chocolate
Let me live perpetually safe

make me so small so all the bigger things
spend time worrying about me instead

but it is a poem, and a fine one...the idea of bigger things worrying about me instead...i like that.

a peaceful one.

i related totally to this poem, thank you.
