Being Me

daisy-405166-wallsave.com

Time’s taken too much
Bulldozing through years
Cellular, clinically cold
Pushing me flat out of breath
And at the end of the day
What’s gained but clichés?
Therefore, I’m stubborn as a daisy
Pressing through hard soil
I say, give me earth, sea, sky
Let me catch the khee-whee
Of a single red-winged blackbird
Just let me bloom against the grain
And finding myself, let me be myself
