Bury me beneath the ground,
Make me feel your pain.
Drown me, and flood me,
Leave me in the rain.

Throw your rotten compost
And spread it over me.
Abuse me all you want,
I’ll wait here patiently.

But when the summer comes,
Bees buzz and sun will shine,
I’ll spread my petals toward the sky
In a beautiful design.

The author's comments:
I got into poetry when I went to Literary Arts Night at my school and realized all the poetry was depressing. I wanted to write something a little happier, at least at the end.
