like a lily

flower.

peaceful, beautiful, useless

 

you must perch in the wind,

dance in the rain,

withstand the cold,

& stay still in the soil.

 

but

flower.

fragile, broken, ordinary

 

then sit on the shelf,

be judged and proded,

be bought at half- price,

and be happy with that.

 

don't falter 

don't bother

be perfect

or be dead.

This poem is about: 
Me
