About the Poem
International Institute of Akron

Design by Zuzana Kubišová
My heart is a box of bright crayons
that can draw my rich imagination
and my multi-colored life.
My heart is like foggy glasses.
I can’t see the world
as clearly as I would like to.
My heart is like a pair of dancing shoes
that can take my soul to any destination
and spin with the scenery.
My heart is a natural clock.
I wish I could turn its hands
back to the past
to spend more time with my mom.
