november bloom.


november bloom.

how is it that we spend so much time

dazed and confused, it’s quite a crime

we are meant to live through kindness and affection

taking each step with loving intention

why is it that we often find ourselves stumbling through life

tripping through the darkness desperate for light

i believe that we can change this

by knowing that we can no longer blame this

on others entirely, for we can find our way just fine

clear our heads, breathe in clarity and stop time

our strength is deathless

our capacity for love is endless


lately, i’ve been searching through myself

ripping pieces apart, refusing any help

my body and my mind were a maelstrom

my eyes searched for where i was displaced from

soon, the waters ceased the attack

i was tired but noticed a small and vibrant lilac

sprouting from my hand, holding so much promise

its petals were beautiful; they were flawless

i realized then, that this flower bloomed without the sun

that it captured the light within me, and the growth begun


  the waves fell away, and i was left to stand

this was new, it was unplanned

it was november…how could this delicate flower

bloom into something so graceful with so much power?

a flower does not need the sun to reach for the sky

nor the warmth of july

but what it does need is love

that, is more than enough.
