Growing
Blooming every day
Becoming beautiful and stronger
But before the roots
Dig deep
Old age shrivels uniqueness
Contaminated by the world
Never able to be
Its original self
Shrinking


The author's comments:

This piece is really symbolic of the journey of becoming an adult and how that takes away innocence. I was inspired to write this by my creative writing teacher's workshop focusing on creativity and how we loose it as we get older.
