Flowers.

Posted: September 1, 2011 by briannaadkins in BriannaA

I am a flower.

One that has not yet

blossomed.

I do not speak

unless spoken to.

I am quiet.

Do not think of me as outgoing.

I am not.

I prefer to keep away from new people,

from uncharted waters.

I am smart.

People are intimidated.

I am not a cheat.

I earn my success or failure.

Over time I have been broken,

but I grow stronger everyday.

I am not a pushover.

I will fight back.

I do not use my body as a weapon.

Instead, I choose words.

You think you’re better because you can hit people.

I know I am better because I can walk away.

I have the power to change the world.

Now all I need is

the courage to use it.
