By Luna Maluna Gri

I watched myself wilting 

fallen petals beside my feet 

I wilted and wilted 

down to my roots 

Shedding everything  

which weighed so heavy on my shoulders, everything  

I don’t need anymore  

I nourished myself 

in the rich black soil 

I watched myself growing new leaves and standing up tall, 

a bud formed in my heart, 

strong and gentle, 

residing in my deepest truth 

And now I’m ready  

to bloom
