Poetry #105: Wilting & Shrivelled Into The World

That glow, smiling frontal to the sun

A pure free soul, creating wonder

Then she heard the crashing of thunder

Unknown to her she’d be initiated into a blunder

Stepping out into the world

Wilting at every criticsm

Flower head turned upside down

Twisting the beaming smile, denigrates into a frown

Life smacks her left and right, turning her into a stuttering fright

Turning for comfort here and there

Ending with a harsh sharp glare

Creeping around

Trying not to make a sound

Burying under old archetypes she found

She’s shrivelled up, broken and bitter

Her love for the earth, she still picks up litter

There’s good inside

She doesn’t let the light hide

Fuck the rest

This life is a test

Let her be with open arms

Smoking her coping mechanism of a cigarette..
