Terza Rima: Iris.

Pz-avatarby Shanny Gol22 Feb 2020

She was just a young bud
Keep it to yourself! Don’t show it to no one!
It became such a big deal for the rest, but meaningless for her

All she wanted was to run
To run like the wind, to fly like the stamen
She felt her fingers touching the sun

Who are those men?
That want to pick, use, and throw
The ones who wrote the rules with such an elegant pen

Her heart had melted like a worm and dirty snow
To never be known, that’s what she would prefer
Maybe if it was pure, she would see it glow

A flower should be loved in order to grow
She was just a young bud
