Bird flying alone in dim sky with grey clouds

Bird has No Love

Patch of wheat grass sprinkled with dew


Starting as sabzeh grown on porcelain, Fragile your roots are, Tender and hopeful you tug up, Mist on you roots, Why would you let mold touch them? Snapping at your childhood, Snapping your childhood, Don’t let it stop you from pushing through porcelain. You are shatter worthy.
