Fragile Lives

The sky clears of the darkness
morning rays beckon to wake
Cautiously from under the stone,
A weed braves

Weed, but an unloved flower
Is crushed below thy feet
Its life so fragile,
It kisses the dust, even before it could breathe.

And the same fate transcends 
in my life, my womb
I feel a kick, as tears dry
And I pray she doesn't hurt.

  1. Aww, so sad! Beautiful how you have compared a weed's fragile life to that of an equally fragile human equivalent.
