Under Milk Wood



Come closer now.

Only you can hear the houses sleeping in the streets in the slow deep salt and silent black, bandaged night. Only you can see, in the blinded bedrooms, the coms and petticoats over the chairs, the jugs and basins, the glasses of teeth, Thou Shalt Not on the wall, and the yellowing dickybird-watching pictures of the dead. Only you can hear and see, behind the eyes of the sleepers, the movements and countries and mazes and colours and dismays and rainbows and tunes and wishes and flight and fall and despairs and big seas of their dreams.

From where you are, you can hear their dreams.

-Dylan Thomas

I'm starting to save up money bit by bit each day now. I'd usually stop halfway when comes to saving up. But its different this time,I need it for my future plans. Mom's challenging me,she says I won't save up enough and that I won't keep my word in doing these things. I'm going to prove her wrong this time.

  4. Good luck to you! I know you can do it!

    Can I tell you something? My Mom used to talk to me like that too...I think they think it will motivate us more...you know...reverse psychology??? Except it used to make me feel real bad and made me feel like she didn't believe in me...I now can see she thought she was doing good...So just know that that is probably what your Mom is doing...

  5. I hope you do prove her wrong(:
    Just work hard at it and when you really want to buy something just think of the smile on your mom's face when she proves you right.
