fern  in the forest


She is silent
Caught inside a world that doesn’t care
And doesn’t know why it should

She hangs back as the others dance with avarice
And gaze longingly
Into the eyes of their reflections

She wonders
How it is that she belongs here
And when the end will come

With tired hands she scores another line into the rock
And marvels
At the forest of days stretched out before her.


Did you know today is World Poetry Day? Well, it is. And this is my contribution.
