Favorite Quote:
"The horror! The horror!" -- Joseph Conrad

One simple flower
Stunning, luminous flower
Why thus you glow that way?
When I hide behind the patterned stone
Why do you still sustain poise?
When only wisps of gusting wind
Swifts through my soft hair
Why do you reveal your recognition?
When life itself endures the drowning of lies
Why do you still manage to breathe?
The gleaming neon fuchsia frame
When did you ever endure pain?
The identity of what seems to push through the crowd
Why do you continuously push?
Yet my heart cannot contemplate the fury, frustration
Inside of my very flesh
In what seems like forever
I’m waiting, waiting
Luscious flower
To finally truly blossom
A flower demands time to bloom.
Time is all I desirably need.
