Petals

Petals

Afraid to bloom, hiding beneath the shadows of trees.

Gentle breeze lends whispers that put the mind at ease.

The sun touching petals idle I stand.

Beneath me, the soil replaced by burning sand.

Above me, I see a giant extend a gentle hand.

Ripped from the ground, I fail to understand.

Afraid I lose some petals, ashamed of what I am.

A lonely flower now in a stranger's hand.

In soil, I am placed, but still, I'm yet to bloom.

I see a journey ahead filled with peril and doom.

The seasons come and go, and I am yet to understand.

I miss the horrible burning of that long-forgotten sand.

But in this soil, I take hold and let my roots grow.

Afraid of what I was, eager to let go.
