a naive lily

June 12, 2017

innocent
fragile
silently hiding a tremendous strength
an inner wall capable of keeping everything and anything just below the surface
her forever way to lead life
mother cleans and sweats
dad drinks and laughs
one busy to hold a roof
the other busy holding his head high
indoors where the lilies never flourish
incredibly blind to the mind they unleashed
a fragile, innocent mind imploded with his cold anger and her lonely genuity
wondering where all this so-called love springs from
looking out a large glass door
quietly watching
it’s all growing
asking me why i’m waiting for their love
asking me why i’m not there growing
indoors where the lilies never flourish
following his footsteps
his forever way to lead life
indoors where the lilies never flourish
