Sunflower musings:
In the era of likes and followers, being famous for me is being a sunflower in a vase of silk roses. It's not about who's beautiful, but whose beauty is true to their own?

You're a Natural

Standing in the hallway

Sitting in the classroom

Not sure what you want to do.

They asked you their questions.

They tried out their pragmatism

but it somehow didn't work on you.

Because you see the world

But you see it differently.

They see the lines and the grids

that make sense of their world.

But you see the emotions

that made the world come to life.

How do you relate to them?

How do you make them understand?

That you're trying to be normal.

Trying to be one of them.

But that's not who you were born to be.

Because your eyes are made of stardust.

Because you've got sunflowers growing where your heart's supposed to be

and storms that unfurl in your mind.

You're a natural.

A wildling.

Raw beauty that's growing

but rooted to the core.

They don't know you.


Because, girl, you're undefined.

They ignore you.

Even when you're standing tall.

Because, like it or not, they just can't deny.

When all is made public in this crowded life,

Darling, you're unmarked territory.
