white vanity sink

Children, I hope you have a place that’s peaceful like mine once was
My bathroom, the only place where I could get some peace
Peace from my thoughts, my family, my friends, everything
My bathroom is quiet and my escape
And to my future children and my grandchildren,
I hope you find a place like mine

I was inspired by “Mi Pueblo,” by Cruz Villarreal.

    Dear Genesis

    I am thankful for this poem. I enjoys because it is unique and funny which is rare in most poems. One line that stands out to me is “I hope you have a place thats peaceful like mine once was”. This line shows how important this bathroom is to you. This poem reminds me that not all poems should be serious, and how some can even be funny.Thanks for your poem. I look forward to seeing what you make next.
