Little flower

Sun, 06/18/2017 - 21:29 -- Neftee

Little flower.
Planted in the concrete, you tried to grow.
It's not your fault.
There are one hundred million people trying just like you.
Crying, weeping, praying..
Please know you are more then they made you.
I love you,
Be strong little flower.
The world is not kind.
But your light is a light that deserves to shine.
You are a beautiful voice.
That needs to be heard.
Do not settle for good enough.
You say that you can't get it right,
But it's not your fault.
You are just the product of an insane world.
But you are not insane.
Feelings feel until they don't,
But you can not block out the pain.
Let it all out.
Feel it in your stem through your petals,
Let it shake your soil
But don't let it uproot you.
You tried so hard.
But keep trying.
The dumps keep filling, over spilling
But they don't fill with you.
You will rise above.
Just don't give up.
Be strong.
Little flower.
The world can be cruel.
People lie, and cheat,
But not to you.
They only hurt themselves
please know,
You are more then they see you.
You are a voice.
A loud voice.
It's about time the world hears you.
