A Dandelion's Shoes This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   a weed:

a thistle,

or a dandelion,

that nobody wants,

and everybody hates,

must feel so

out of place,

and yet feel cherished

by the simple touch

of a child's hand,

unprejudiced,

wanting only to

make a wish,

and see it fly

on the wind

with the dandelion seeds.

a weed:

must feel appreciated

at being picked,

not

TORN

from the ground,

until, abandoned

by the rejecting wind,

it's mocked by

false hope.



(and i think

what a sorry life to live

for a weed is just a

FLOWER

that's lost its

way.)
