I’m a dying flower

Yes, I’ll be dead within the hour

I know I’ve always been a downer

They all wanted me to speak louder

I wouldn’t have suffered with a superpower

But I know I’ll never be able to overpower

My thoughts that threaten to devour

If I step off this tower

I hope I don’t cower

So I can die without being sour

    step away from the tower, "please"

    well you surely woken me up this morning a very very powerful poem young lady. i guess in the past 18 months the young people have really found it dark, theres never a rainbow without the rain so hold on its coming. so damn emotional this peice, it could be a rap song too.

      Thank you, I will try to keep myself away.
      I’m glad you think it’s powerful, it’s definitely what I was aiming for🙂

      Powerful words haley. Life can be so hard but if you look from that tower you will be able to see a glimmer of light so climb down the tower and walk towards that glimmer and you will find that life is there for you and will be full of hope and love.
