I Always Grew Back

Updated on January 5, 2018

I remember the first hand that tried to claim me

Pulling my roots from the earth

Tossing me to the ground

With no remorse

But those hands didn’t know

That within my leaves and petals

Were seeds

Those seeds were planted

And they grew back

And more feet stepped on the sprouts

And still they grew back

The seeds were still there

Because although you could hurt me

You could not claim me

I am the flowers that sprouted from the plant you tried to have as your own

You cannot get rid of me

Because I will keep growing back
