The Wild Flower

I already know why
There's no surprise
It's the life I lived
Too many goodbyes
And hello evil world
Mastering larceny
Sleeping all to well
Abdicating honesty
It's not me

A natural thing
Chosen to live
From love I came
From love I give
Enduring winds
Of temptation
My course set
The sail within
It's me

All my waiting
Knowing, failing
Time arriving
Finally smiling
A natural thing
Love of another
Into the garden
The wild flower
It's you

Purification
Soul purpose
To lie awake
Heart justice
Every wrong
Swept away
Knowing now
Life is today
It's us

I love the structure of this poem, Mark. The unfolding story within is great too. Much enjoyed.
