Poem a Day: 11

Standard

用心。Yong sum. Use heart.
To be diligent, attentive, careful; with motive, intention.
My mother tells me this in our yellow kitchen,
scratching blue pen on white paper.

Too much forgetting who we are,
forgetting to use both head and heart,
together, instead taught to keep them
segregated, lest we love too much.
