  • Sunflower

    Outwardly she was expected to smile all the time.
    The 'pep', and the 'life' to the group.

    Perfection personified
    Desensitized
    Dehumanized
    Her petals they could – must – never droop.

    They tested and tried
    She held strong; did not cry
    As such, they forgot
    She felt things, too.

    The smile wavered
    Flickered
    Just for an instant
    Too miniscule
    Too short
    To be of any significance

    So while others looked on
    She brought that old smile back on
    Fixed
    Frozen
    And stuck
    ‘Til spring's end.
Working...
