like a seed waiting to germinate and bloom in glorious agony

the earth

01.02.19

It is 

dormant,

waiting 

my skin shows promise to freeze, 

And crack. Break. 

It

eminates from me 

like a seed waiting to germinate and bloom in glorious agony 

inside

inside 

it is buried inside

digging 

breaking through the skin

the earth

oh when where you planted  

my tears only help you grow

heat, once a comfort, sees you bloom a new leaf,

it all comes from the earth

the mother earth 

Emily Johnson, 15, Edinburgh
