Sensitive to Light: The Plight of a Fearful Flower

True-Nature-of-a-Bud

Perhaps if I would of just let him open me

I guess some flowers are afraid to receive sunlight

The bud is the fearful one’s haven

Blossoming would mean

I would have to let you see me

My wilted pedals, plucked, bitten, pesticide ridden

My frail and malnourished stem

All because I was afraid to let the light in.
