By Lisa Poem.

Within a 100 days witness me

grow to my full glory

Blooming up to 10 feet tall

in the eyes of the sun.

For my growth, time is not a suggestion

its mandatory

as my power takes root

starting from day one.

I become the backbone

to all of the connections

you seek to keep

judged by my actions

versus a feeling

you think you need.

A feeling I’m often confused for

A feeling I’m often used for

A feeling i get abused for

A feeling

I refuse to

forfeit my credit

to love.

I am not proud,

but you can take pride in me

knowing all of your doubts

can die with me

because “for better or worse”

waters the seed alive in me.

I will protect your peace of mind

with the nature of my loyalty.
