Do not let your wings unfurl
Your petal curls unfold
Be not so bold
To bloom or ring
The tunes your soul
Does toll
I tell you true
I tell no lie
When you expose
Your core
You think you’ve given
All you have…
There always will be more
For you are you
Enduring long
Eternally you are
You cannot use up
All you have
For when you give
You’ve more
When you close
To hold to grasp
To smother in your folds
You limit what’s your
Your petal curls
Grow old
They fade and die
Tight bud
With thorn
And never do drink sun
You lose just all that once
You had your life
Has not begun.
