Flower Cover …
Is a vacuum really nothingness?
The true beginning that we will see
A planted seed with subsequence
A conception new, no flaws and free
But, like a cloud encased by shadow
the darkness seeks to choke the light
With ignorance such darkness shows
And corrupts the world with night
But light, though infinitesimal, flowers,
A brilliant flight from the tunnel grows
Unstained and teeming with power
upon the earth it shines and soughs
With seeds unleashed upon the plains
From darkness, it begins to show.
Petals like eyelids open through strain
Synaptic bursts surging to-and-fro
Raw emotions grow and correlate
Like rain with tears, and joy to sun
With time the body maturates
And blossoms, but not everyone
Not every sapling is bound to ascend
Not all will kiss the sun up close.
Not all will rake the ocean’s end
Not all will hail the heaven’s host
Those young allowed to grow and spread
Will grant soon the shade and food to grow
their tree branch cover from overhead
Will protect all those who live below
