flowers growing in unusual places

It started with a grain
first fed
then contained

Fear kept it
lovingly
in its domain

I was always brave when the time came.

Breathe in
rip it out
like a band aid

Now I harbour winds that rage
like hurricanes
but hardly whisper
outside the brain

I used to be brave when the time came.
