Plants are patient Waiting for just the right time to sprout The slightest misjudgment on their part could mean death So they will wait as seeds for years Hiding beneath the tall oaks Hoping one day they will have the chance to kiss the sun's sweet rays as their elder's looming above them do
Plants are strong As people massacre them for food or for their flashy reproductive organs But they will come back Even though they know they will be cut down again
Plants are kind Giving themselves to help all others Blooming beautifully for the bees Cleaning corrupted air Giving back to the soil when they die
Someday I hope to be like a plant I hope to be patient in life Waiting for the right time I hope to be strong To grow back even when I know ill be cut down again I hope to be kind To give love to everything and everyone
we used to Sit together at lunch. we played in the park together after school. you used to grab my shoUlder at night. you dance In my dreams. you clapped when i Cried at night. trying to fight the Intrusive thoughts. you keep trying to Decide my fate. mAde sure you were safe in the depths of my mind. but my choice has always been to Live.
the last thing they leave is a LETTER
inspired by billie eillish new song "bury a friend"
I melded my crown Out of the metals I used to cut myself with I dyed my dress With the blood that once was a weakness I painted my face With the warpaint and tears I used to cover my fear I forged my heels Out of the glass that shattered me I used to be hurt, weak, scared, broken But now I am regal, strong, brave, resilient -no amount of tears could take this new feeling away from me
It’s time to end the era of being a princess. I want to be a queen.
