Perfect

By Thomas Neubauer

A flower in bloom
Makes a glorious sight
The perfect example
Of something done right
Tries to uproot
Tries as it might
Struggles for freedom
Struggles to fight
Pulling away
Away from its plight
Growing up tall
Increasing its height
Yearning forgiveness
She pleads to the light
“The flowerbeds growing
Rooms getting tight”
Losing more and more
Night after night
Her leaves are all turning
Her petals are white
Smothered to death
An inglorious sight
An imperfect example
Of what once was right.
